Them good ol' days!

I was missing my 'hunky' hubby today! So, I posted a trip we did to Davis (Whispering Horses Golf course) a little while ago to play golf! Yes, it was beautiful that day as you can see. It was a cool 68 degrees. I wore a jacket while my crazy husband and his bestfriend, Bert wore shorts, die hard Californians! Jim is a great golfer...he has been playing since he was a child. Ever spare moment he likes to go play or practice at the putting green or driving range. I have just recently joined in the 'maddness' because of trying to spend more time outdoors and doing a sport I look good at! Yes...I am vain, don't really like seeing women running, bouncing all around, so unbecoming! LOL! And not really keen on major sweating either. Plus I get to wear really cute clothes too! Ok, enough about me. And all my vainness (is that a word). Back to missing hubby! I won't see Jim for 2 weeks, 2 long weeks! And then I will see him soon after that towards the 11th of the month. I do like my time to myself but not at long periods of time. He calls me 2-3 times a day between shifts (he works doubles, 16 hours a day, 5-6 days in a row). He knows I love to hear what he has been up too, and he talks to the machine as if it was me. It is sometimes my only thing that brings me true joy in my day! Today was like that. I miss him more when I can't cuddle up when it is cold or have him keep my footies warm in bed! Today is a very cold and dark day. So yes, I miss Jim alot today! It is freezing here in Elk Grove and very rainy! As I love the rain, I don't like the wind so much!

Well tomorrow is the Super Bowl, something like 27 different countries are watching! Can you believe that...FOOTBALL! I for one am heading over to my bestfriend's parents house for Game Day Gumbo and watching the game! Neither of teams playing is my team (, 49ers my hubby, Cowboys,my bestfriend) but I am rooting for the Patriots! I would like to see them take the whole thing! Wouldn't that be phenomenal?! Well my blogger friends take care and sorry so many days in between posts, I will try to do better! Just got caught up with swaps and such! I will take some photos of tomorrow and post about the day! Watch for those TOUCHDOWNS!

With much love,

Hi Robyn,
So sorry you are missing your hubby so much. That does not sound like much fun.
I loved seeing and hearing about the golf trip though.
I play golf, but I can't hit the ball very far. I do hit straight though.
Thanks for you sweet comments on my blog. I have been selling my pieces if people ask me to, also Jennifer Grey has some of my stuff on her website, the old painted cottage.
I hope the time goes by very fast for you, so you can see your husband.

Hey! Don't be reading this. Your supposed to be reading your new book. You have a book report due soon.

You mean to tell me that Jim is gone for two weeks and you didn't tell me? If it wasn't for the fact that Jim looks like he's a lot bigger than me, is armed with a golf club, and would likely use that golf club to make me look like a hotdog on a stick, I'd be right over. And..and I got something I gotta do anyways. Really busy...

You were in Davis recently? My best friend is the Chief of Police of Davis. That's just really useless knowledge that I thought I'd share.

Well, sorry that you are on your own for the next few days and that your, what did you call them? Footsies? Yeah, sorry they are cold. I'll bet you put your feet on the back of Jim's legs to get them warm, don't you? I hate that!

Well, stay close to the computer. We will keep you company. And thanks for the excellent responses to my music question at my place.

Put on some socks,

being outside with green grass, heavenly! We are blessed to have life partners we truly miss when they are away!

Hello my dear! Sorry to hear Jim is away for so long. Hopefully the time will pass quickly. The photos are great by the way. It appears he really knows what he's doing!

I read all your comments over on Brian's recent post and left one for you. When you have a chance check it out. I think you might find Stephen Parrish's recent post very, very interesting.

The poor Patriots. Rob's still in a funk.

Thanks for always stopping by and bringing lots of smiles to my face. You're a sweetie. Please keep your fingers crossed for Ireland. It's been almost 2 weeks and I'm feeling rather low, but I hear all of my blogger friends kind, supportive words, and have hope.

Much love,
Suzanne XO

Good morning sweetie ~ I'm supposed to be in the shower, but don't think I'll make it. I came here to check on Cecile and now know she's okay (she's in Arkansas as you're aware), then I got stuck in blogger hell! I went to delete a comment I left on Kylie's blog, but laughed so hard at her response I just couldn't bring myself to do it. When you have time check out her Pancake Day post, then read the comments. Her Gram's a winner!

Love you dear ~ have a nice day. Sun!!!! Congrats to us! XO Suze

Cecile said...

I just wanted to let you know that I was blown away by your comments on CSI's blog. You are an amazing woman with such a wonderful story. I'm so glad you shared it with us.

Suzanne said...

Cecile...thank you. I told her and she's just agonizing over stupid! Thank you. See Robyn. I told you. Cecile go to Stephen Parrish's blog. You'll be blown away again.

I TOLD YOU ROBYN!!! If you ever erase that stuff I'll just kill you. Don't touch it.
