peeling pomegranites.

I suppose it means to come home to sparkling clean and re-decorated bathrooms, complete with matching towels and bathmats. to be loved.

He knows how to get to my heart.

Or maybe it means a quirky little smile from the stand when the kids are climbing on my head at one end of the pew and perfecting the art of KungFu on the other; and hearing his sympathetic grin and focused glance scream across the congregation that he thinks I'm beautiful. And graceful...in sunday meeting scolding.

I guess it's the generous surplus of covers and body heat when I shiver.

Or the kiss and the chuckle when we have leftovers and tantrums for dinner. Again.

I think it's that he told me I'd be a hot rockstar; and left out the part about the obvious scheduling conflict the tour would create. He's so supportive.

Or when he makes me try all his new work-out tortures, and only cheers with support when my plank isn't so steady.

I suppose it could be the empty laundry room.

But really...it's when he peeled me a pomegranite tonight. I knew he loved me.

Nice. And, Wonder Woman, I know that was a cheeky comment, but let the world know that it's definitely the CANADIAN part of Cally that's the coolest!

And on to your post, I have to say that I love pomegranates and tried to share the love with my family just this week--helas, it was not to be. So one lonely gran still sits in my fridge, waiting for my lazy fingers to reveal it's delicious delicacies. I need Conan to peel mine too--do you think he would do it, in a completely unloving way, for me?
