Lilac soap and pearls

I was just sitting here sipping a cup of tea and thinking about how cooperative and agreeable my husband was yesterday when we went to the church sale......He was actually very sweet. And then he did something this week for me that I have been asking for a while.......he glued the broken ear back onto my porcelain bunny. And then he actually took apart the faucet in the bathroom to repair the drip.....never mind that Brother Biff The Plumber still needs to make a house call.

My point is......don't you just love it when a guy "fixes" something for you? When he takes out a hammer or chisel or saw and makes something right again?

It kind of makes me feel romantic.......

Like....maybe I'm being taken care of a bit....appreciated perhaps....pampered just a tad.....

Dare I ask.....what puts you in a romantic mood?

I have to agree with you that it is romantic when you have a hubby that comes in and fixes something for you. Mine has been busy working on building a front porch for me, something I have always wanted. When I see all the work and effort he is putting in it, it does make me feel special and loved!

Laura, I like your thoughts today!! (I like them every day!) But today... I do agree so much. It`s so nice and makes a really good feeling when a man helps you with something you think is difficult. And it`s kind of romantic too. Especially when he means something extra to you ;O)

Imagine if I could come over and visit you one day!!! Hihi.
I have actually never been in Usa. So one day I will. Maybe I meet you then!

Temporary - we have to chat here. And it is sooooooo nice and I can practice my english too. Which I really need... It`s so bad... But I hope you understand most of it!

A big hug from me- L-jo ;O)

Feeling taken care of is very romantic. I find that men tend to show with action instead of words and even the smallest action like this is always appreciated.

Beautiful pics! I feel romantic when my Glenn moves something really heavy for me...ohhh, just sends chills down my spine! But, for some reason, big muscles on guys does nothing for me...can't figure that one out!


Chrissy said...

Hi Laura,
I just posted about lilacs and then when I went to visit you...I saw you had lilacs on the brain too. I've added you to my favorites. You've got the junk thing & the French thing; a girl after my own heart!
A Bientot!

Beautiful pics, and sweet story.
We just need to remember, men don't always do things on our time schedule, but when they do it, it is very special.
