March Photo Challenge: Day 19



Prompt: Numbers

About this photo: Another quick post, sorry for the lack of stories. I promise a good story soon. I had a hard time coming up with this photo today. The only Numbers images I could think of had to do with infertility, the FET, the dreaded birth control that we are all sick of hearing about, etc.

After dinner I asked Mr. Husband what he thought I should take a photo of and he said his math work – duh. But that would be a seriously dull photo, no offense Mr. Husband! His second suggestion was the antique abacus I got for him a year or two back. I was going into work late that day and decided to take an extra 20 minutes to browse the Restore Habitat for Humanity thrift store. The first thing I saw when I walked in was this gem of a find. The colors were so yummy, the shape was delightful and it would please Mr. Husband to no end. I snatched it up for $30 and ran home to quickly make a card:

“Dearest Mr. Husband, How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.”

Like all the random treats I leave him (aside from the 5 pound gummy bear) the gift was a hit. We carved a well-lit space out on the bookshelf for the abacus and there it has sat, reminding me daily of the many reasons I love Mr. Husband.

    It is really stunning. I love items like this, with a history and a life before they came to you. And what a beautiful note, Maths and Literature all in one gift.
