My hero

When I read a book, I always picture the hero as my husband. Now, when I write a book I base the hero's good qualities on my husband.
This weekend, Tim researched and found a desk for me at a Target at least 45 minutes away from our home. I went to work, and when I came home he had a desk. Late last night he and Scott built it for me. Scott finally said he thought there was a defective piece, but he'd look at it more today. That wasn't good enough for Tim. He worked and worked until he figured it out and built it perfectly.
For a couple of years I've wanted a red bud tree, and I love crepe myrtle. After I got home from work today, I discovered Tim bought and planted a red bud. He also bought a crepe myrtle which we planted after supper. He also bought a bush for our oldest son, and we drove over and planted it for them. (Bill showed up and helped finish the job.) Later this week, I'll take a picture and share the new view from my back porch.
Here's a picture of us in June with Scott.
