.I suppose little surprises are what keeps us happy and enjoying each other’s company. I don’t think I surprise Vince much because he’s past the point of being surprised at the things I do. It’s never anything real crazy but more that I just come up with weird ideas .. things that make more work for him. I was trying to describe for him this weekend what kind of trellis I want for my peas and I don’t think he ever accepted that I wanted what I was describing just because it’s pretty. I don’t think that’s the trellis I’m getting.
Here’s where he surprised me. He never ever . . never . . reads my blog. His friend in Florida will call him sometimes and tell him that he needs to look at something I’ve written. I wrote this post while in MO . . completely confident that Vince would not read it and my surprise was safe. I guess he got bored while I was away . . without me giving him instructions for things I wanted done . . and he read the blog. When I got home, he said “You know I like blue better than I like brown.” Huh? What are you talking about? “For my sweater!” So much for that surprise.
I do think the blue is going to be more purple than he wants. The brown isn’t as gray as it looks in the photo but I’m not sure he’s going to want that either. At least since it is no longer a surprise, he can look at it and then choose a new color if he wants something else
Just when we think we know their next move, they surprise us. That’s ok . . I have a surprise for him but, I can’t say it here because he might read it. Let’s just say .. he has a birthday coming up soon and I think for once, I have a gift that will surprise him.
