A year ago on June 27th, we were getting ready to celebrate our 38th anniversary when we got a call that my mom had fallen. She had not just fallen, but said that she had been pushed by her neighbor. It all seemed so incredible. We rushed over to WF. Mom had broken her arm near the shoulder. That was the least of it. The entire episode sent mom into a tailspin. We spent our 38th anniversary at Mom's.
Here we are a year later. Toby took off a couple of days last week and Monday of this week - Monday being our 39th wedding anniversary. On Thursday Toby took me to OKC for a bit of fun in the city. We did some shoe shopping and then ate lunch at Ted's - our favorite. We stopped at a liquor store to buy Prairie Artisan Ales - something Toby had been wanting to try. Then we moved on to the Prix de West at the Cowboy Hall of Fame. It is a great show every year, but this year seems to be better than last year. I love looking through the paintings. We did not do the Matisse show at the OKC Art Museum. I try not to overload Toby with too much art. I will save that tour for time with my art buddies. Other than the City traffic, it was a good day. There was a wreck on southbound I-35 as we were headed north into OKC. It messed up traffic all day. We drove across town to run an errand then headed down I-44 to I-40 to come home and avoid I-35. It was a mistake. Not only were we in 5 o:clock traffic, but there was a wreck on I-44. What a mess!
We spent Friday here at home preparing for the Art Walk. Other than a trip to Wal-Mart, we did not go anywhere. And of course, there was the Art Walk on Saturday, which was all consuming. Sunday was our usual day at church. We came home and took a big dog nap. Our friends Lindz and Shay came over for some barbecue chicken and a bit of visiting that evening. We made our first batch of peach daiquiris of the summer. Yum!
On Monday as we were deciding what all we wanted to do for our anniversary, Mom called to say she was sick. And so it was deja vu. We spent our day in WF seeing to Mom, who was not really sick - the good news. But she is needy sometimes. We did have a salad at Parkway Grill, my favorite place. And we went by Sam's for a few items. At Sam's Toby bought me a yogurt with berries. While we were sitting there at the tables in Sam's eating our yogurts, Toby said that this was my anniversary treat. Wow, I cannot wait to see what next year's 40th anniversary will bring :) He is always a fun date.
