Take the Right Picture…..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAMy husband and I had been home together for the last four days. We didn’t do much, just chores about the house and watched some TV. We only wanted to relax so Thursday and Friday was great, but Saturday we became a bit restless so we went out and saw a movie.
