Tomorrow, we're going on a photo safari up the mountain to Lynn Valley to see the waterfall. One problem - it's going to be raining and I have no rain gear. But he said he has extra Gortex jackets and will bring one for me to wear. Now he's 6'3" and I'm 5'7" so I'm sure I'll have to fold the sleeves up several times so as not to drag them in the mud. L very kindly inquired as to whether I could walk that far since I told him I have to have back surgery in January. I figure it's a good way to get a back rub outta him later. Right?
Anyway, in anticipation of him coming back for dinner afterwards, I've cleaned the house from top to bottom - dusting, swiffering, vacuuming (hoovering for my Brit friends), polished mirrors, cleaned the toilets and sinks, cleaned up my office in case we want to upload our photos, baked cookies, shopped for chipotle citrus marinated chicken breasts and have all the vegies ready to roast. I even bought him some beer that is cooling nicely in the fridge. All the candle holders have new tealites in them and there's a log in the fireplace just waiting to be lit.
This dating business is hard work and I'm wondering if it's worth it. Well, no I do think it's worth it. How do I know? Because I've had butterflies in my tummy all week waiting for Saturday to come. Wish us luck and stay tuned.
