June 8th..I was married 45 years ago today ..The lilacs were in bloom and it was a beautiful sunny day.I was 20..Jacques was 33..
you can imagine the stir that caused when we started dating;)
Things have changed so much!
Now men are 80 and their new wives 20.
I've mentioned the wedding vows were not the vows of my dreams..in city hall in Montreal w/ the most callous justice of the peace you could ever meet.
My wedding was small..
immediate family and very few friends..
In the backyard of my parents home.
Steinberg's did the sandwiches and such..my brother's friend's dad took the photos and Rosaire made our cake.
It was such a beauty of a day..like today♥
Many of you know I had lost my mom 6 months before..I was 19..and my dad died the night of my wedding..
Omgee things were off to a different start..
But soon after..Mylène was born..then Caroline..and I played with my dolls non stop:)My living dolls♥
And then..Lucas..Max..Noah and Oli..more living dolls♥
Let me tell you..speed of light the years go by..even the miserable ones.
In retrospect that is;)
I am up so early these days...the sun rises at 4.30 I think..
It's 7 AM and already a cake is out of the oven..and I am planning a quick jaunt to the market.
Spring took forever to arrive..but it's coming..my seeds are sprouting..we glammed the grass and gardens yesterday..I love the end of the day when everything is done.
I have about 13 beds to maintain and some days are diamonds..some days are dust.
A garden is a must.
A garden is spiritual..healing..zen.
So much beauty..so much..and surprises..awakenings..losses..
Even with the work..the worst is over.Spring and fall are back breakers..the maintenance is less so.
I am watching my garlic ..every new clematis shoot..hellebores blooming after at least 3 yrs..started from seed..
Yesterday on Varage Sale..a lady was giving away at least 20 tomato cages..free..rusted but sturdy..
I was fortunate to be the fisrt to say..me please..thank goodness she had made 2 tidy towers..
even those getting them into my car lol..
There must be 25 as I have placed 10 and I didn't make a huge dent.
I did the second painting from my 4 part class..hope I find the time for the last two..as the gardens call every day.
I make bouquets with what I find..
One thing I adore about June..is a great lobster roll..
I bought 2 this week..2 lobsters..and made rolls.
Reading Where The Crawdads Sing..my daughter recommended it..so far..a page turner and the writing is so touching.
Also we just finished watching a Netflix 4 part series that Jacques found very harsh to watch..he likes tv to be relaxing..
I was riveted and filled with anger.
Marie recommended it.
It's a show people should watch.
"When They See Us".
The hell those innocent young men lived in unbearable and unbelievable to watc.
Shame on the whole dept that did this to those young men.
And Felicity Huffman..her character is so dirty and disgusting.I don't even have the words.
You really see a different side of human nature.An ugly side.
Those young men.Heroes.Heroes heroes.
