Project 52: No Place Like Home

This week is packed full of appointments, assignments and a lot of computer work for me.  Tom has been away more than he has been home since September.  Tonight we are both home, but neither of us wanted to eat out.  About 4 o’clock Tom called saying he would take care of dinner, so I could keep working on a wedding I’m coordinating for this coming weekend.

I lost all track of time.  Before I knew it, Tom was home saying, “Dinner is ready!”

I hit the save button on the computer and emerged from my cocoon-like state to see a table set and my favorite seafood – Alaskan Snow Crab Legs – waiting for me!  Ah!  I love it when Tom takes care of me like this!  It’s no big deal really!  He’s very aware of all my favorites, because I do, (ahem), drop hints all the time!  But this time I had no idea!

We dove into the crab legs with both hands.  They were delicious.  Afterward, Tom started a fire to take care of the chill in the air, and it made for a perfect night.  Although we didn’t have questions to answer or romantic conversation in which to engage, we thoroughly enjoyed just being together in the place we both call HOME.

Sometimes when life is too busy, we need to plan time to just like this!  After all there is “no place like home”.

    Staying home can be sweet. That is great that he cooked for you. Our new house doesn’t have a fireplace and I am really missing it.
