21st Anniversary tomorrow  
Tomorrow is our 21st anniversary. I am hoping to be well enough to go out as I'd like Chris to take me to one of the beaches and to a nice restaurant. I haven't had much appetite after the surgery and I'm sick of the same chicken meal I have been eating for the last two weeks. I'd like something like a fish or seafood. I don't know how much I can walk but I'd like to walk some of the coast and enjoy some nature. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and beautiful. It's been cold the last few days. The only thing is it's Saturday and everyone will be doing the same thing and it likely won't be so peaceful. Not so sure taking a day off is a good idea financially but well I'd like to do something nice even if it's just going out to the coast.

My cellphone has been a good little friend for me while sick. I've enjoyed playing with the calendar. I love looking at the weather on that as I enjoy looking at the temp change. I use google maps a lot in satellite mode too to find places to visit and possibly kayak from.

Art wise I haven't done much. I have half a page of Fear sketches that are nice though and I should get around to filling the page out if I get the energy and motivation. But that's something I can't wait to get back to also. I have so many ideas I want to draw and great stories in the works. Plus came up with a short story for Fear while I was in bed I should draw one scene from as a sketch.

That sounds like a great way to celebrate your 21st anneversery with Chris as well as having seafood at a restaurant. Glad you're having fun with your cellphone and I miss Scary Fear.

I think it will be good for both of us to get away for one day. I'd like some good food for a change. Thanks. Yeah I miss him too. He also needs to return.

Your anniversary is now legally able to drink in the USA.*chuckles* Alright, jokes aside, I hope you will be having a nice day. After everything you two would deserve the peace and quiet, and some good food.
Ah, the one thing smartphones did make easier. The use of Google Maps when you need it the most. I found it always very useful, and if you got a Wi-Fi signal, some fun with Google Earth can also come to it.
And, understandably art has been a bit on hold with your surgery and the house business. Recovery is also important, and more so than art for now. We will gladly look forward to your art, once you feel better.

Ha, that made me chuckle actually. You're right hee hee. Chris has been under much stress from all these things too. We both deserve to get away for a day. BTW, the repost from DA I made here has an update after the italics part. I talk about how I have recovered since I made that post.
It's a lot like Google earth because I can see the satellite of the map. I actually have a hard time understanding GPS without landmarks if it's just streets. But I love checking out new places this way first before visiting them.
Thanks. I do miss drawing though. I was cranking out great stuff before all this. Well, hope I can return to it soon but I'm glad you and the others understand.

Congrats on the 21 years, that's quite a mile stone for sure. A stroll down the beach does sound relaxing for the occasion despite the commotion with all the other residence. Ah glad that your phone has been handy through the majority of your recovery in regards to the weather apps and possible kayack locations, I wouldnt mind a good kayacking spot myself weather permitting. Thats cool you have stories for Scary Fear, ill definitly look forward to that once you recover.

Thank you. I'm looking forward to it. I think it will be nice. Kayaking is so fun. Salt water kayaking is my fave but well probably because we have alligators in all freshwater here and so that's not so fun. Thanks. Glad you're looking forward to those.

Happy anniversary! I hope you both have a lovely day.

Thanks for posting all the updates. I'm not on DA as much and I was wondering what had happened. It took quite a while for our friend who had his gall bladder with laparoscopic to do normal things like bend, so please take good care of yourself :-) {{hugs}}

Thank you. We had a great time. I will post about it soon.

No prob. That's fine you're not on DA much. I recently had a friend I really look up to leave and well, I had no reason to stop him. Thank you. Yeah I am taking it easy but I am recovering. I'm very happy with how much I walked today but I am now zapped and have to rest all day tomorrow.

Hope you had a good time out on your anniversary!
Guess they gave you a special diet, those are always gross. It should be fine to change it up a bit now.
Meds drain motivation and just make you sleepy all the time. Still nice that you managed to do some sketching. Soon it will be all forgotten and things will be back to normal :D

Congratulations! I hope you get out on your special day as the weather sounds perfect. If not, I hope you can celebrate one day soon when you're well enough. oh, fish or seafood. Yummy, yum, yum!

Old Flame likes to have a weather app on his phone, too. It's not quite accurate for my place, though.

It is fun to explore on Google maps and that's cool that you have found good places to kayak.

At least you are getting plenty of ideas even if you can't put them into execution right now!

Happy 21st Anniversay, it's great you and Chris made this milestone and i am more than sure there will be other amazing milestones in your relationship. You and Chris are the perfect example on how a couple should be: communication, support, common interests and personalities. Glad to read you had fun with your phone at least you spent some good time, though i miss Scary Fear's stories and other characters.

Thank you. I have no doubt there will be many more to come. We're both very happy with each other for sure. I hope we can set an example as it's sad how people rush into relationships for the wrong reasons with no standards and no commitment.
Aw, thanks. I'm glad you miss them. I hope I can start to work on them again soon.
