A Great Season of our Lives

The 11th of next month we will celebrate our 32nd anniversary, we have always tried to put God first in our marriage.For the past several yrs. DH worked from home , the past yr. he has been laid off ,we have been together 7x24 for several yrs. now. I know this is NOT for everyone, but we Love it!
It has worked well for us. We do everything together , which brings me to the pic. here, I started the laundry ,I was busy doing something else when the washer stopped DH took the laundry out took it out and hung on the line to dry.
When we first married DH didn't know how to do most chores, or cook much.He has come a long way! :o) When we 1st married ,I worked outside the home ,on my off day I would do deep cleaning and in between he would help me keep things picked up and organized.Thru the yrs. he has learned to do chores and cook.These days he doesn't wait for me to ask him to help if he sees something that needs to be done he does it.
When we kept Foster Children ,he helped with them no matter what the need was. When Our Birth Son was born he helped with him feeding, bathing, changing diapers no matter the need he helped.
Now that we're in our Sunset yrs. it is a wonderful Season of our lives. We work together to do the chores and have free time to enjoy our free time together to do thing we enjoy doing.
Every night before going to bed DH makes the cof. so it will be ready when we wake up, hes done this so long, if I make a pot of cof. I have to ask him how to do it. lol
Each morning he gets up and brings us cof. in bed.We drink our cof. talk , and enjoy waking up and enjoying each others co. and not having to worry about rushing our the door etc.
We get up at the same time , when we get out of bed we make the bed together. If theres chores to be done, we do them together. If not we do what we want to enjoy the day together.
No matter how busy our day maybe we make time for each other.
We Never Volunteer the other one to do something! We Love and respect each other.
We enjoy pretty the same things, hes a race car fan I am not , so when its on t.v. he watches and I do something I enjoy. We enjoy Nature , we Love going to Cades Cove in the Smokies, we enjoy picnics, and have several favorite spots we picnic, We enjoy renting a cabin in the Smokies and going for a little get away.Theres so much more we enjoy doing , but I want bore you to tears!lol
What Season of live are You in? What do Ya'll enjoy doing as a team?
Hope ya'll have a wonderful week end filled with those you Love.

Sunset years... we do together:church, milkshakes, fast food,and I get to go to the feed store... LOL

My husband retired, but started another business in our back yard... I help where I can... but it is definitely a man's job! Not much free time together...

Dear Lib,
I love this picture of the laundry, I want to copy it and hang it in the washroom! I adore your blog!Thanks for the visit to slugs rest, we enjoyed having you. Mr. Slug and I are similar to you both as we enjoy doing things together as a team like you do. Harmony sounds so sweet! I am truly being a slug this fine morning, so I will sign off with a hearty heidy ho and a howdy do! Love, Mrs. Slug
