Monday Night

Yesterday evening I got home from work around 5:45 pm. I took a photo of this gorgeous Aspen tree outside our front door and then immediately went inside and changed into a comfy nightgown and robe.

I laid on the couch and rested my back while I waited for Luke to come home. He arrived at 6:10 with two bags full of groceries for the week and a kiss for my forehead. He asked me “how does lamb sound for dinner?”

Yummy. He grilled the lamb while I cooked up some swiss chard. We ate at the kitchen table and talked about our day.

Then I had a bit of deliciously crisp white wine someone gave us as a hostess gift at our football party this weekend. Luke chose red wine. We shared the couch and watched two of our favorite shows – Dexter and Homeland.

For dessert we indulged in a few scoops of peanut butter ice cream. I can’t resist ice cream right now.

We got ready for bed and read for 20 minutes or so on our Kindles. Luke rubbed my back, like he does each night lately.

Then Lila got the hiccups. We both rested our hands on my belly and felt her little, rhythmic movements for about five minutes.

Right before we turned out the lights, I turned to Luke and asked with a smile “do you think we’ll always be this happy?”

After a quick kiss he said “Probably even happier.”
