Four stores later, we still hadn't even come across a microwave cart, never mind bought one, but we had managed to purchase a pricey Dyson vacuum, some banister brackets, drawer handles for the router table Steve built 10 years ago and never put handles on, and a couple venti Starbucks.

I went grocery shopping later and bought myself some flowers - the oddest color carnations I've ever seen. Man has done so much mutation and grafting and genetic modification of nature that I have no idea if this is something that occurs naturally or was achieved in the laboratory. Whatever the origin, I love the colors. Greeny/mauvey.
The Cadillac dealer across the street from the store went out of business a couple years ago and since then, I have helped myself to their abundant roses since otherwise they bud, bloom and die with no appreciation whatsoever, which just seems wrong. So there's a big pot of roses on my counter right now also.
And that's how my 17 year wedding anniversary went...
