I am sure some of you think I have dropped off the earth! But I promise I did not. Monday was full of housework because our niece Tina was going to be here Tuesday on a pass for my birthday. And of course Wednesday was also busy with our mid month shopping. I am about tuckered! LOL! Here is Tina and I at the cemetery where her grandmother on her mom's side is buried. I sure do not like seeing me in pictures! LOL! I am a chubby thing and my poor body is so bent and twisted! But the spirit sure isn't twisted!
Here is Jack and Tina. That darn sun was hot and bright! Liked to have melted us all!
Tina colored this for me. I love it! It means the world to me.
Look at this silly pair! Tina is just plain full of silliness!
And this is my new wedding band that is on the way. I am embarrassed to admit this, but I lost my other one. I really feel bad about it and yes, I did cry about it! I was having a lot of trouble a few years ago with my fingers swelling and I had taken my rings off. Was I careful to put them somewhere safe? NO! I laid them on my side table. I guess it got knocked off into the trash. This style of ring is called a claddagh and is Irish. Perfect since Jack is Irish/Italian. They are traditionally given either as friendship or wedding rings. The hands mean friendship, the heart means love and the crown means loyalty. If you wear it with the heart pointing out it means you are engaged. Facing the other way means you are married. It used to be given with the following words, "With my hands I give you my heart, and crown it with my love." So there is a little history for you! Jack let me pick out and order the ring I wanted and I got a very good deal on this one. It is made with silver which suits me fine and was under sixty dollars which also suits me fine! LOL! If I can get a good deal for little money, you know I will! Oh it will have our names and the date of our marriage inside! That was a freebie!
So that is all for me for now. God bless you all! And to all those who wished me well for my 49th, I thank you. It means a lot to me!
