At Least, I Was Happy

Six happy years! Today, as it has turned suddenly cold, my dear spouse marked the occasion of our anniversary (well, one day late) by celebrating the first of the two seasons here: Road Repair.

I celebrated by baking two apple pies, collapsing in exhaustion, and taking a three-hour nap. 

And he married me anyways!

[Best conversation this week:
Me: I didn't peel the apples.  I hope you don't mind.
Dr. S: You know, when we were first married, I didn't really like apple pies with the peels on.
Me: You could have told me!
Dr. S: I got used to it.  Besides, what would you have done?
Me: Stopped baking you apple pies.
Dr. S: Exactly.]


  1. You leave the peels on? That sounds sooo much easier. And the pies still taste good? I want to try that now.

    (I loved the conversation BTW. Happy anniversary!

  2. Happy Anniversary! And that is a great conversation. He knows you :)

  3. Joe: I think they taste good. :) I taste-tested it on a batch of college boys the first time. They were too bright to complain!

  4. and sounds like you knew better than to ask before he was good and used to eating the peels.

    good behavior, scientists. happy anniversary.

  5. HA! I love it. And I love peel in my apple pies. I think I go for a half peeled apple because the full peel reminds me too much of my mothers whole-wheat crust, no sugar pies. And happy anniversary, too!
