I’m glad that I cooked dinner last night. The time spent with Hal was priceless and the enjoyment of dinner and wine made it a very special evening. I suppose that this is the type of thing that Charlie Brown and Snoopy are indicating on today’s calendar page. Sometimes you don’t need a lot of extra things to enjoy the moment with those you love and care about. It is the simple act of being together that is really important, and worth remembering, that makes the time special.
For the record, dinner was delicious and there is enough food for dinner tonight as well. There is no point in cooking for two people every single night. I hope that when we move next year that we will get the apartment we really want. That apartment has an open kitchen which will make the entire experience much more pleasant because it won’t isolate me from things by being in the kitchen. Cooking dinner will be a much more enjoyable experience in the new place once we are settled in. If only time moved more quickly, we would already be in the new apartment. Alas, we must continue to wait until Spring before we move.
