We live in a part of the world known for long summer twilights producing beautiful skies in the evening. The twilights are so long and lovely that fireworks on the Fourth of July do not begin until close to 11pm. Darkness just doesn't happen until much later. I love those summer skies. The rosy, pink glow casts a light which is so lovely.
Earlier in the evening, Jack and I were busy working together to get dishes done quickly so we could continue our new habit of doing some twilight golf. Jack was putting dishes in the dishwasher and I was doing any number of things to get us out the door. Jack had filled a tumbler with ice and poured the remnants of a glass of wine over the ice. With soapy hands, I picked up the glass and commented on the rosy pink glow of the liquid. Then the glass slipped from my hands and fell on the granite counter top, but did not break. The wine was all over the counter and the ice was everywhere......... on the counter and the floor. Oh, my! Jack calmly stated that it was just not the wine that would have a rosy pink glow. We were laughing and cleaning up a big mess......... ice, water and wine everywhere.
Out the door to the golf course and Jack continually commented on the danger in having his drinks anywhere near me. I pleaded that my hands must have had soap of them from the cleaning up. He kept up the rosy pink glow dialogue and I knew I would be paying up once we were home.
Home now, and Jack wanted to watch the remainder of the baseball game. I went up to bed to read. I love this time of summery nightfall .......... after 9pm now and the sky is a glowing rosy pink. I open the shutters and the windows and enjoy the sky as things darken very slowly. Getting sleepy, I called Jack to tuck me in. When he walked in the bedroom, I pointed out the rosy pink glow in the sky and that was all my Jack needed to be reminded of the rosy pink drink spilled earlier. Jack helped me out of bed, told me to be still, put me over the bed and spanked me soundly. He hugged me and thanked me for the reminder of the rosy pink glow from earlier in the evening. Good grief........... how did I forget that?
I did sleep the sound sleep of a loved, spanked wife. Up close to Jack when he came to bed just awhile later, all was at peace in my world.
I am keeping hands off all glassware this summer. Just so you know!
Thank you, L.
