Saturday started off beautifully. I woke in my own bed, walked downstairs and made my favorite creamy tea. It was made better with Monster and Andy. For the record – this was something I told my NIH Team I was excited about….and that was back in October.
My day was nice – Andy and I spent a lot of time together, chatting. It was really wonderful to just shoot the shit, sit back and let the conversation flow. It’s been so long since that’s happened; we talked about nothing and everything at the same time, laughing, swapping stories – memories from our collective pasts woven together and enunciated with the occasional shy glance. Rain lashed the windows, but we were safe and warm and comfortable in an old familiar way, together.
I loved every moment.
Later we made food – prepped for an Apple Tart, and put together pasta with roasted veggies. I had seconds. Deadpool 2 is on now, and in less than 10 minutes, I turn 40. I’m grateful for so much.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
