We cleaned out the pond, picked up sticks, ran the mower dry before putting it up for the winter, put the Christmas tree up while we listened to Christmas music(while I did laundry) and got the lights and bows up on the outside porch. We got a lot done in a fairly short amount of time. At one point in the afternoon Katie told me to fix her a late lunch which I did. Later I happened to turn on the Auburn Alabama football game while I worked and later we watched the second half together. Now Katie is not a football fan but she will watch a game with me because she knows I enjoy it. If you missed that game, you missed a good, no, a great game with a fantastic ending.
I kept thinking about our day together. Just an ordinary day yet it was one that I loved. I loved it because we could work together. We helped one another and shared experiences. We did pretty much all that she wanted to and we had fun doing it because we were together. Spending a long weekend together is a real treat. We had planned on going to the beach for the weekend but ended up staying home because Katie was feeling tired. She felt bad for not going but I wanted her to understand that I didn't mind the sudden change of plans. Whether at the beach or at home, what I most wanted was to spend uninterrupted time with my best friend. And we did just that.
Tomorrow there has been talk that she's going to take me to a local sports bar/restaurant where I can watch my favorite NFL team game. It won't be televised here but will be on the NFL network at the sports bar. Katie has taken me there twice before just so I can watch my old 'home' team play. I can't believe she's doing this but I'm not going to complain - and if we don't we may take a nice walk at a nearby lake to do some birding as the ducks have since migrated south and are on the lake. Whatever she chooses to do, I will enjoy it all the same as it's not about the game or the ducks but about time together.
I hope you can take some time to just enjoy your better half as well. Have a relaxing rest of the weekend.
