"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

a cheap date



The time spent... meandering.  First we head down the highway looking for an interesting byway.  A left or a right catching each sight that comes our way.  All through an appropriately smudgy windshield.

Holding hands as we smile down each shadowed mile.  Dusk chases us back as the night sky turns black. The thirty minute road trip.

Have a blessed weekend,  Debbie

  4. One of the fun things my little husband and I do, too...but usually with a dog in the back seat. So, how did you take that picture?

  11. Even considering the price of gas/gallon, yes, it is still a 'cheap' date. Glad you had time spent together - I look forward to time with my husband soon.

  14. Those are the best ones! Debbie, Ahh be still my heart!! Nothing beats having dh reach over and grab my finger or hand, as we travel down the road.~smile~ I remember as a child seeing my Dad reach for my Mother's hand and they would hold hands for hours as we were traveling, and he did this until the day he went to be with the Lord.
    Enjoy your week, and thank you for your sweet comment, always blesses me so.
    Hugs,
    Sue

  15. We call it adventure riding, and I love to do it. When I was little, my parents always took a Sunday drive, and they took us with them. I guess that's where my love of it started.

    I'm glad you posted this because it seems that it's been a long time since my husband and I enjoyed a quiet drive.

  16. Maybe a cheap date, but you are both obviously rich!

    I liked your photo.

  17. I love this. The destination is irrelevant as long as my love is by my side. Of course, these days, any occasion to be out of the house without our littles is considered a date night.

    Have a blessed night and fingers are crossed the power won't be out again anytime soon!
