Does this even resemble a heart? No, not a real heart. I mean a heart that one might give for Valentine’s day, or for an anniversary or if you’re silly enough…two weeks after your anniversary when it might be your birthday.
I have to confess I wasn’t very clever when it came to picking a wedding date. I did pick my dad’s birthday so that made it extra special…..and it was in the middle of winter which made it extra fun for people traveling to the function. There may have been fog and delays and buses, but no one got hurt. Perhaps I’ve mentioned this before, but Valentine’s day, is closely followed by our wedding anniversary, followed closely by my birthday. For about 6 weeks around our house there is a constant celebration going on….we really should leave up the Christmas lights. Consequently when I receive a very nice gift from my Sweet Husband, in conjunction with one of these special occasions, inevitably I forget which occasion it matches up with. So we’ve made it easy, just cards. That doesn’t sound to hard does it… unless you’re me and you forget to get a card. For Valentine’s I confessed this faux pas to my Sweet man and he suggested that I make him one. So I did and it was sweet with red hearts and lots of heart like words, he’s very clever. It’s in the picture, next to the heart shaped pancake. As for gifts, I don’t need anything anyway, unless it’s new garden gloves and it doesn’t matter when I get those.
In the spirit of celebration we’re going to take a short break, hand the house and cats over to the very well armed and attentive house sitters and take off for parts unknown. We tell people we’re going to the coast….aren’t we lucky. Photos to follow, after all we are beginning our 10th year together. Wednesday the 24th is #9. WOW!
