I spent the day with my daughter shopping, both of us wearing red shirts, the shirts not planned between the two of us...my daughter's comment about the happenstance of red shirts today was something sucky about Hallmark holiday inventions...then we called my mother and had a nice chat (Mom loves Valentine's Day).
What I got today was a happy day with my kid and mom, and that's enough.
My friend Trish got roses and chocolates from a guy. *sigh*
That is the sweetest. Several years ago the women in my family decided to celebrate Valentine's Day together. We go out to lunch, bring little gifts and cards, and affirm how we feel about each other. No romance, only love.
Hi Beth, snow storm, oh and you are wearing those.
Somebody sent flowers (secret admirer it said), now I am puzzled, someone delivered it from roses and diamonds e store. He should come forward, and another one a teddy bear, big one. I am too old for it, but I gave it to my daughter.
I got rain, too! Was so afraid spring was here to stay -- but it's gonna rain all week! That makes it cool enough to have a fire in the fireplace!
My hubby is a real romantic. He made me coffee in bed this morning. Is cooking me lamb shanks and polenta for dinner (OMG --YUM!) He did the traditional red roses (red are not my favorite, but they are for romance). No sooner did I get them in the vase then my crazy cat Jimmy started gnawing on them. He has a fixation with flowers and paper.
Even better, hubby and I brought over flowers, chocolates, cards and scented candles for my mother-in-law and her caregiver. Love is meant to be spread !
I got a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a pretty card. I made him pancakes with strawberries-- the pancakes were supposed to be heart-shaped.-- but some of them looked like the continent of South America.
I had a laugh with the flower delivery man... he kept bringing out of his van diferent flower arrangements... from different people!!! It looked more like deliverying flowers to a wedding party (or a funeral) than a Valentine's delivery
I got my frog mobile home after a week away. The two were mutually exclusive events
Then we had dinner, with Simões, whereby I yapped all the way through about nothing in particular - then I gave both a chocolate bunny (turns out it was an Easter related thing but anyway) and I told them they were both gorgeous and my Valentines.
Then Abbie spoiled it by saying - "yes but can I be your best Valentine?"
I got home made cards from my kids. One was from my 13 year old, with a coupon for one free hug. The fine print says "It is not redeemable at Wal-mart or school". HAHAHAA I made us all BBQ ribs, tossed salad, baked potatoes and chocolate chiffon cake with chocolate butter cream icing to celebrate and after dinner hubby told me he had found fireworks in the tire corral at one of his stops and the manager said he could keep them. SO, I also got fireworks for Valentine's day. It wasn't on purpose really, but super cool just the same.
To all of you who are married, single, separated or recently divorced Have a Wonderful Valentine's Day ! :Can someone please tell me how to post pics on here that would be the greatest Valentine ever!!
