How I Spent My Anniversary ...

Okay - so it's not the "order of operations" lesson I planned to post next, but I just had to share my evening.

I'll give you a hint - it had to do with wood and loud noises ... nope, it's not what you're thinking (shame on you, by the way) ...

This is what happened literally 10 seconds before my husband and I left for our anniversary dinner ...
Our beautiful, at least a century old maple tree split in half and fell.  Now, I have to be honest with you - we didn't even hear it fall (I'm blaming that on the kids), but the neighbours all heard it and were coming over just as we were opening the door.  So, we had to scratch the dinner plans and instead spent the evening waiting for the city workers to come and clear the mess blocking the street.  Not my idea of a romantic anniversary ... (but on the bright side, I see plenty of romantic fires in our future).
I AM glad that no one was hurt, and all cars and houses remain in tact.  However, my lilies in the garden below did not fare so well ... sniff, sniff.

So it leaves me wondering ... is it a bad omen for the marriage if something that has lasted a century "breaks" on your anniversary???  Oh well, it is what it is ...

Happy 9th anniversary, Jay - love ya!!!
