Day Seventeen

Salt and Pepper Shakers
My friend, Cathy, called this morning to say she was in town running errands  -  how about lunch?  Today is Thursday, so they weren't serving their fabulous tomato Gorgonzola soup, and their loaded potato soup looked like it might be loaded with everything I am trying not to eat  -  cheese, milk, cream, butter - Yum.  I ordered my favorite sandwich - hummus, roasted peppers, artichokes. . .so good!  It was warm and cozy in the restaurant and we could have stayed all day, but life goes on.

November 17th.  I just realized when I wrote the date in my sketchbook, today is the anniversary of the day my husband and I met.   Years and years ago.  He was in the Air Force, and when I met him, he was on his way from Key West to Omaha.  He was gone for another year and when he came home we decided to get married.  In the few months before our wedding, he worked nights and weekends and I worked days, so we still didn't see each other.  How well could we have possibly known each other?  Well enough, I'd say!  Tonight is spaghetti night.  I'll put candles on the table.

Happy Memories! Bet Cliff was (is) a handsome soldier :-)
I like your tomato S & P's better than the real ones. Love the colors.
Time to make that Tomato-Gorgonzola Soup again...since we don't live near "Tomato's"

Marj - I never saw him in uniform!He was far away.

I am not sure how the tomato colors are showing up - they are very different on my two computers. Yes, it is time for "the" soup. I have been on a pumpkin soup kick.
