About Rose, James, Our Life & More
A Week Alone With Just Us Two
August 28, 2010Posted by on
My parents will be back Sunday morning as will my brothers and sister. My aunt will probably stay for the day so I’m planning on cooking something special for everyone. My older brother can’t boil water so I think this is a good time for him to get those cooking lessons he so desires. It’s almost laughable. He’s 23 and had to stay over my aunts with the younger sibs because he would have starved. He also has a bad habit of leaving the house a mess and not being around when my parents get home so they chose to clean up. After a vacation the last thing you want to do is clean up behind your son and his friends.
James took off work yesterday! We made a commitment to spend as much time being romantic as possible. We took turns cooking for one another and tried to cook dinner together each night. We went swimming several nights but not skinny dipping. We also tried to keep the television off. We were forced to converse with one another. It was just like dating again. Looking into each others eyes…
When we did have the TV on we watched a few of my favorite movies. Avatar and The Girl With The Pearl Earring. Luckily for me James can stand to sit through chick movies without complaining. Last night we watched the Packers beat the Colts. That was depressing but the ice cream sundaes during the third quarter brought a smile back to my face.
Tonight I just want us to be intimate. Candles and a little Jazz. I went out this morning and bought Chris Botti Live With Friends. He is one of my favorite smooth jazz artists. I recommend anyone who loves Jazz to get this DVD. It is fantastic. Gladys Knight, Jill Scott and Sting are just three of his nine guests. It is an amazing hour and a half. I’m putting it on just to listen to with the TV off.
I’m making some of James’ favorite dishes and I got some oils for a massage. I’m going to spend the evening pampering him. There is certainly a lot of inspiration found on the Internet. I’m glad I started this blog but I’m not sure very many people are reading it. Those that do visit and comment, I hope they come back. In a sharing mood.
Have a great weekend y’all.
