My husband Ed came home from school, totally spent. He's a substitute teacher and some days are rougher than others. A computer crash took most of the day and part of the evening to resolve. I have a bit of knowledge and thankfully I've been able to fix our computers when we have a problem.
We prepared dinner together as we shared what had been an exhausting day. Ed teaching 4 - 1 one hour classes and a home room or activity period with an average of 125 students during the day. And me, working on the computer, feeling like a zombie, my brain was fried. Although I think I had the better day. Dinner was ready and we sat down to enjoy our meal.
After dinner we relaxed in the living room. Oh the comfy couch, so inviting. We sat there for a while enjoying each other's company and laughing a bit. We had made it through the day relatively unscathed.
Ed left the living room a for a short time. When he returned, in his hands were two glasses of wine. He left again and came back with two chocolate brownies and two peanut butter cups on a single plate. We lifted our wine glasses and made a toast.
The lights were dim. Sitting closer we shared the bountiful snack. How thoughtful and romantic, glass of wine, a chocolate brownie and peanut butter cup.
An ordinary night had turned into something special. Just being together, aware of each other and sharing an intimate moment.
Always celebrate the ordinary nights.
