I'm so blest to have a husband who is so versatile. He can do so much around the house..He has completely remodeled our house and keeps everything in working order. He has build a new gazebo area this summer like a pavillion over our firepit (which he also built). and he has built alot of our furniture..
When we first got married (over 33 years ago) he and I enjoyed cooking together. He was not used to eating good fresh vegetables as his mom raised him on beans, potatoes and fried meats..Since we married, I've gotten him eating all kinds of veggies and he loves them. We combined families and raised 3 sons together and so it became a necessity to have a garden. I learned to canning and freeze our produce for winter use as the boys were eating machines. Well gradually over the years the pounds crept on and my RA kept me from being as physical as I had been..
Well several years ago, when we both retired, we decided to only grill our meats and to steam or grill our veggies..it has made a big difference in both our weight. Of course you know men can drop the weight off faster than women and has always been the case with him..
Well the last 2 summers he has taken to doing some canning and freezing of his own..it used to be just my job..so thought I would put up a photo of my young looking old man preparing okra for freezing and for our lunch today.
We are forever young!!!
