50 Days to Love Your Lover
This is going to just be a quick post to call for help and ideas because FREE blueberries are still calling, so I have to much time (more on that later).
Here's why I need ideas: Last Friday my darling husband turned 50 years old, and to celebrate I, somewhat belatedly, came up with the idea of doing a 50 Days to Love Your Lover. The plan is to do something special for him for 50 days, having started on Friday with going out for dinner and a movie. On Saturday, we had the cake and ice cream and gifts and then at Sunday breakfast I gave him a note that said I'd give him a backrub lasting at least 20 minutes. On Monday, I slipped him a little dark chocolate candy; on Tuesday I gave him a little gift I'd found at a yard sale. Tonight I plan to slip this silly moustache cup in at his place at the table. It was a yard sale find, too, with nothing on it so I wrote his nickname on it.
The little sticker is just an address label I printed up that says "50 Days to Love Your Lover" which I've been putting on all the little gifts or notes.
Tomorrow's plan is to give him a game (also a yard sale find) and then Friday evening we've invited over a group of men and young men from church to have a men's game night with sloppy joes, but don't tell him because it's a surprise. He doesn't usually read this, so I think I'm safe. :) I also have plans like meeting in the back yard for some quiet time together, taking him out for a Coke by the river, "Something About You for Which I'm Thankful" notes in his lunch and more yard sale find gifts, I hope. So, any ideas you can send my way would be wonderful!
Because I'm thankful to have a loving, faithful husband, I
