Dinner on the River

My thanks to those of your who read my last post and took the time to comment or voted on the poll. I hope you will continue to come by. You have my sincere thanks.

Our lives are quite different living on the river as opposed to the house in town. In town I had become somewhat isolated. Tom was the only person with whom I spent a great deal of time. Here on the river there are wonderful people everywhere – Kate and Andrew next door, their wonderful children and their friends and of course Sue and Steve. There are others in the neighborhood who have become friends also so I am delighted with where we are. I know Tom is happy we are here too but on rare occasions I think he misses being the only person around.

Now Tom certainly never has to fight for my attention. I would still rather be with him than anyone else on the planet by far but when he is working I am more likely to seek out others than just sitting and waiting on him.

Tom works Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and when he gets home on Wednesdays night Tom seems to especially want to spend some alone time with me. He has created a special time for us on Wednesday evening. He packs us a picnic and we have dinner on the river. Although he did it politely he made it clear to everyone around that we neither need nor desire company on these evenings.

He does make one exception, probably because he harbors the hope and illusion that her manners and her willingness to obey will someday rub off on me. I am afraid he will be disappointed but I enjoy Willow joining us anyway.

So with bread and cheese, fruit and a bottle of wine – as well as a few dog biscuits – we head out on the boat for a late supper. We have a favorite little spot on the river where we love to watch the sunset from the boat. To me these evening are heaven. It originated as Tom’s idea but it’s just what I always want – Tom all to myself. I love talking to Tom, I love that he listens to me. That was one of the first things that attracted me to Tom.

On the boat I snuggle back against him and tell him about my day and hear about his. There is also definitely some kissing going on but at Tom’s insistence all activities on the boat are G-rated.

When we come home after our evening on the river we continue to avoid friends and leave the television off. It’s just us. If the air has grown cool out on the river Tom draws me a warm bath – I love when Tom baths me. I feel petted, pampered and somehow owned. As I get out Tom wraps me in a huge towel I feel as if I could drift off to sleep without ever even opening my eyes from the tub to the bed.

However this is rarely what Tom has in mind. Now I can think of a variety of ways for a loving husband to awaken a dear wife – Tom, as you might imagine, has his own favorite. One second I am drowsy and comfortable the next minute I am bottoms up at the receiving end of a stinging good girl! But of course this is rarely unexpected as Tom does know how to wake up every part of my anatomy. Sigh… I do love our Wednesday evening. The boat ride might be G-rated, but back in the bedroom – well let’s just say you must be over 60 to be admitted!

What do you think?

I feel I might have made a mistake. My, that might be a first! I usually begin by telling you I have done nothing wrong. But I may have this time. I haven’t been blogging much. And I miss it. Beside the general business of life I have wondered why I don’t post as much. I believe I have finally realized that I have been trying to hide from those who likely feel I should not be posting here rather that writing for my many friends who seem to enjoy my take on life. That just doesn’t seem right some how.

I have always enjoy writing about the little daily things that go on as well as stories from the past (and the extremely rare time I may still do something to which Tom might take acceptation! LOL!) I like to share how I spend my days on the river. Often not exciting but satisfying to me. I like to share when I'm annoyed at Tom and I enjoy sharing when he is being his most romantic and charming self. But as of late I never know if other will think this appropriate. I don’t feel it would be appropriate for me to comment on blogs now. I feel trapped between what I want to do, what I feel is proper, what I feel my readers might enjoy and what I feel might make others uncomfortable.

I feel that few read here now, mostly because there is little new to read. But for those who are kind enough to check back I am curious about your thoughts. Although it will be my decision will you share your feeling about the future of this blog – if indeed there is one? I hope to include a small survey and of course feel free to leave a comment or email me at casscat6575@yahoo.com

What are your thoughts?

What do you feel should be the future of "Cassie's Space"?

It's fiction, post all you want to. We like reading whatever you want to write about.
Just post when you have a good story to tell.
I think it's time to shut the site down.

Happy Summer!

Hello, hello! I have missed everyone out here so much! My summer has been full and busy. Time to write has been in short supply but I have finally found some! We are gearing up for a large 4th of July party tomorrow. Sue and I are neighbors of course and the other three couples are here also. We are having a joint party with Kate and Andrew so there will be a crowd.

But this is to let you know that I have been writing and I will be posting it within a day or two. I hope you will come back. Meanwhile I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th!!
