About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

ABC Wednesday - F is for Flailing for F Words


We were talking about this week's ABC Wednesday last week, and I mentioned that the letter "F" was coming up. I had a few ideas about what I'd use...like flowers for all the fantastic ones he's planted in the garden for me, or all the fabulous flowers he's brought home for me.









I also considered using food, for all the wonderful feasts he's prepared for me and the few meals I've prepared and that he's favoured. And for the time he cleaned out the baked foods cupboard and organized it all for me.



I thought about him as my former flame, and how he used to make my heart flutter whenever he came near me.
These days, my heart fills with wonder and awe that we've found each other again and that our love today consists of fervour, fealty, friendship, and fondness. And I must say that my heart still flutters.



Then I thought of how we've just ordered new furniture for the living room and how that symbolizes the fusion of our two individual lives into one.




But I think I will leave the final word for him.
His choice for the letter F is:


FOREVER


How can I argue with that form of thinking?

Fantastic post! Leslie! You covered a lot of "F" words! And all very beautifully accompanied by "foto's"( Dutch for "photos"). Thanks for your visit. Marieke's dress was especially designed for the baroque concert. The other musicians were also dressed like gentlemen of that period.

You don't seem to be flailing for "F" words at all:) A beautiful post, Leslie; you are a very lucky woman. And I'm sure he considers himself a lucky man as well...

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Leslie, there are so many beautiful words that you have for F, and happy ones too. I like the heart shaped fire and the last picture is so cute and romantic but touching too.

'F' is for 'flipping heck'. An expression often used by people of the north of Engand!
Glad all is well with you and Lorne, Leslie, I wish you both joy .xxx
