An unexpected long weekend, a wonderful Valentine's dinner and of course, a wonderful Valentine to share it all with. Oh, and not living where there are ice storms anymore.
The weekend--on Friday, someone ended an email to me with a wish for a nice long weekend. I'd completely forgotten that Monday was a holiday. What a delightful surprise just when I was feeling kinda worn out by the stay at home lifestyle.
Valentines Day--early afternoon, my husband suggested takeout for dinner (he's a retired chef and does most of the cooking) and added that if I wanted to go to the store and get something special, he'd cook it. So I did and he did and it was wonderful.
My Valentine--I spent 50 years working to convince myself that I wasn't lonely. I can't tell you how much I appreciate being loved by someone who knows how precious our love is. We cherish every day.
My mother decided to move in with my sister in Texas, dispite my trying to convince her to stay here in California with me. She called to say that it's snowing so much that even she can see it (she's legally blind) and supposed to get to 6 degrees overnight. We laughed so hard over that, agreed she would not go outside. I'm so glad we no longer live in Vermont where I surely would be falling on the ice that used to form in our driveway all winter. Makes me love the gentle rain we've been having.
Have a blessed day everyone. I know I will.
