I get my wife flowers every few weeks. For Thanksgiving I purchased this arrangement for her. I will pick up a nice Christmas arrangement for her soon!

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

She just held Thanksgiving for 25 and now she is off into Christmas mode. I think she needs a break.

So, today I took her to out to lunch. We never stop dating. Tonight I'm making her a martini and her favorite dinner too.

I'm going to the bar and letting her fend for herself at home.

My bartender has too much facial hair to sit on my lap. Just saying...

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

Since Constable Odo is banned, I will contribute in his stead.

He has a saying, "a lady must always have fresh flowers." He will buy flowers once every few weeks, which I put on our breakfast table. I work remotely from home often, so when I look at them, I think of him. I told him this once and he responded, "that's the idea." I still have a rose preserved from the first bouquet he brought me when we were dating. He is the first man to buy me flowers on the regular.

He bought me the gift of an annual membership to a massage spa last valentines day. I had never had a massage in my life before I received that gift.

He makes sure I eat. I am a stress starver and eat mostly salads, so he makes sure I get enough protein in my diet. I work for long hours and can literally forget to eat when I have too many things on my mind. I'm definitely not malnourished but it's nice to know he is looking out for me.

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

It's refreshing to read this thread. My husband has me listed in his phone as My Favorite Person. When we catch up during the day he greets me with an upbeat tone, 'Hello my favorite person!' He knows I listen to Bill Burr's podcast so if it goes to voicemail, he'll imitate in an animated way, 'Just checking in on ya!' I love it.

Today he brought me a cup of tea in bed. Later he sent me a link to a song he'd heard on the way to work that he liked and thought I would too. He does this fairly regularly. I'll receive a song from an artist I've never heard of. Sometimes he admits he's 'Just trying to impress me' and sometimes I'll admit 'It's working'. If he was answering this thread, he probably wouldn't consider this as something worth noting. But I appreciate it. Little does he know I've mentally noted these artists and have a couple of vinyl records ready for him to unwrap and enjoy together.

Re: What did you do for your wife today?

My husband is putting in a "Reverse Osmosis system" under the sink right now.. all because I had blood work recently..

1st I had anemia.. then was sent to get my iron checked... (I thought well maybe I'll take some prenatal vitamins a few days to boost my iron up).. probably a bad idea - as then my Iron levels came out TOO HIGH... tomorrow I see a Specialist... but whatever... we need something better to filter our water.. so yeah.. finally getting a Reverse Osmosis system...

Our water softener is very old , probably doesn't do the best job.. could be a higher iron content coming from that alone..

Not very romantic.. but it's still all in love and for my/ our health.
