While he lay down for a nap,
She readied her surprise….
When he woke and entered the kitchen
He barely believed his eyes!
She’d hoed out the bottom
Cabinets of all their stuff…
Plastic, pots and bowls saved
It all looked more than enough.
She had him finish hoeing things out
And running the dust mop within….
She sat down for a moment’s rest
Before checking their chicken.
She’d roasted a chicken stuffed with apples
And bacon on top for their lunch….
He put potatoes in to bake
And she said he’d helped a whole bunch!
He served her chicken and potato
And sliced peaches on the side…
Then he had to get ready for work
But left a big smile for his bride!
