My beloved Jay and I are both growing wildflowers in our yards. This morning he sent me a text message, and I don't think he'll mind if I share. He said:

"I think of you with love every time I look at my flowers. Six beautiful blooms and at least a dozen buds about to open."

That's the most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me.

I love him, and I love life.

Aquatic creatures great and small kept [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit and I entertained at the New England Aquarium yesterday. Neither of us had been there in years, so we saw it with more or less fresh eyes. The Harbor Seals greeted us out front. They have a wonderful dog-like appeal, and look ready to play fetch. We'd gotten a late start, so we strolled to the top of the 3-story tank, then wound through as many side exhibits as we had time for. Just now I was going to call it an "ark of creatures," but now that I think about it, hardly any of these creatures would have needed an ark to survive a flood. They would have just coasted through, perhaps laughing. Sorry, Noah.

We had dinner in Faneuil Hall, then went back to see the 3-D Lion movie at the Imax. It was an anthropomorphized look at lions in the wild, but entertaining nonetheless. We were sleepy critters ourselves by then and headed back to his place.

There's not enough light in my room for my webcam to show you the T-shirt [livejournal.com profile] beowabbit gave me, but it says "TEAM PLUTO." My darling boy knows me well! He also gave me a coffee maker, a rolling backpack that he doesn't use, a loaded MP3 player, plenty of love, and I am the luckiest girl in the world! It isn't even my birthday. :-)

Well, it's a bit too late in the day to take that nap I'd wanted. Onward to the glamourous part of the weekend: cat litter and laundry!

We schemed for our upcoming Vegas trip, celebrated the positive new direction of his medical treatment, and generally enjoyed just being together.

Sometimes, life proves itself grander than one had ever even hoped for.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] happyfunpaul for the link. You've probably already seen it, but if you haven't, watch it if you want to be cheered up, even if you don't need cheering up.
