Three Things: Beautifully Basic Chores

Some of my favourite times are when Sheldon and I are doing the most normal activities. I am not a huge fan of dinner dates in fancy restaurants. Not that Sheldon and I have really ever been to a fancy restaurant together. I can't be myself as much in those settings. I like when we are going through the motions of daily life together. We are sort of "playing house" in anticipation of getting to live together and spend every day together. There were times when being together was a rare treat for us, so when we get to spend time doing basic chores or doing errands it feel like a luxury. Here are three of my favourite everyday things to do with Sheldon. They are things that sometimes seem like a chore when you have to do them alone, but for some reason I love doing with Sheldon. 

1. Grocery Shopping: This is one of my favourite things to do with Sheldon, because it feels like a game. We are very frugal and we always thinking about ways to get a bargain and choosing one item over another. I also love to shop and don't get to often, so buying a bag of chips or a gallon of milk is a treat.

2. Driving Places: Driving around is when we just get to sit together. We talk over things or we sit and listen to the radio. Sometimes one of us will read to the other. Ever since I moved back to America I have become a fan of riding around in cars. It is soothing to me. Warm, safe and dry. 

3. Cooking Together: Making dinner is by far one of my favourite things to do with Sheldon by far. The coziness of our respective, small kitchens. The smells and the harmony of working toward creating a dish. I have often said that there is almost nothing sexier than watching a guy cook you food. When we prepare food together I feel safe and glad. 


  1. I sure hope you guys pay a little more attention to what you're doing than your pictures portray, or else you'll drive into a tree or chop off a finger. 😉 But I agree… doing basic life with the one you love is the best.

    1. Haha, Lisa. You make me smile. I actually did think about that when I drawing the cooking one. I was like, "Someone is definitely losing a finger here..."
