I was away from home for three weeks helping my daughter to take care of my first granddaughter. While I was gone, my husband did several home improvement projects. I came back to a brighter and lighter color of the interior of the house. He also scrubbed the tiles and put shiny sealant on the front porch. There are still many projects that he will continue to do to make our home look nicer. He enjoys walking around the house and sees his nice touch everywhere.
As a mini celebration, we went to a restaurant for a special treat. He ordered his favorite dish of prime rib, the large cut. He had his regular drink of rum and diet coke. I’m not a drinker, so my he helped me order a glass of wine – Sangria. The wine that we once had when we were in Spain. Perhaps my husband ordered the wine for himself there because I didn’t have any recollection of it. The wine was very sweet at the restaurant, and it was served with ice and some citrus pieces. I had never had wine with ice in it. I took the ice pieces out and put them in another glass. The wine was so sweet that it tasted like fruit juice.
The restaurant was decorated in autumn theme with Raggedy Anne and Andy. There were pumpkins, autumn leaves, and roosters (I don’t know why roosters). I like the different shades of orange color of autumn. It was a pleasant night out for us.
