Yesterday Jerry’s parents celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary. My parents were only married a little over 13 years and both of my grandmothers were widowed at a fairly young age, so 51st anniversaries have not happened much in my family. This is the same church Jerry and I were married in, I love the way it looked back then…when we got married in 1984 there was still a bit of a bad 70s look to the front of the church – very orange and brown.
I’ve made a bit of progress on Rose Quaker from Stickideen von der Wiehenburg. I have not made a lot of progress on my reading however. I don’t seem to find time for both reading and stitching these days and when I have to make a choice, I’ve gone with my stitching. I do almost always listen to a book while I’m stitching (mostly Modern Scholar lectures lately – which are really great by the way) but I don’t think listening is nearly the same as reading. Now should I read or stitch tonight….?
Happy Anniversary Jerry & Esther!
PS – I was just informed that we were married at the same church but not the same building.
