Wow.......I met Mrs D when she was 23. I was 32, way back in 87. She can't remember either. I tell her, check the inside of your wedding band. I had the date engraved in there for a reason. :-)

I met Stirling in 1984, while I was still happily married. He was a friend and co-worker of my exDH. Ten years later, we got together and I moved in with him in 1995 (I had split with the first DH in 1992). When my divorce came through, we started planning the wedding. Got married in July of 1997. Yes, we have the dates engraved inside our rings too.

When SO and I started dating, the in-law issue was moot as both sets of parents had died by that time. We only had each other's children and siblings to deal with. Believe me, that's more than enough.

The inside of my ring says, "Love Now and Forever", it says the same thing in Gaelic on the outside. No date.

I am roasting a chicken full of garlic and herbs rubbed to the skin for the chicken soup tomorrow.

I am also wondering of this: When Gwen makes a chicken soup, she just boils a chicken without first roasting of it with herbs and spices. DA and I think her soup is extremely bland, but we do not say of this.

With love,
~Cat

That's how I make chicken stock. I reduce it and add herbs & spices when I make it into soup. Actually, I often use leftovers from cooked chicken. But, I don't add any seasonings while I am making the stock, unless I am making it for something specific. I like being able to choose the seasonings when I am using the stock.

Finally got the final grocery bag of dang apples cut up and into the CP with some cinnamon and agave nectar. I'm really sick of apples.

Now, I just have one big refrigerator drawerful of apples left. Yay!

Just finished a book that Shrek has been tring to read over my shoulder and urging me to finish all day. I grabbed a lighter and held it under (unlit) the book when I showed him I was done. He about shrieked himself to death! The second book in the trilogy which he finished, was thrown down with, "expletive Cliffhangers!!!" LOL!!!
