HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!
As I sit here on this cold, February day, I am remembering Valentine days over the years. In the beginning, when it was just me and Bill... then later when Amity came along. And then many years later when Cait arrived. I'm trying to remember just how many Valentine Day's we have shared. I'm thinking this is our 34th one together! All the parties, cards, and dinners are still just as special as the first.
It would be interesting to know how many cards and special Valentine treats I have made over the years. When the girls were in school, it was one of my favorite times to be a part of the Valentine celebration! The little ones were always so cute with their cards and claims of true LOVE.
And now, one of my fondest memories is one of our first together as a married couple....we hardly had money to pay the rent, but on Valentine's Day, here comes Bill with a dozen red roses! At that particular time, you couldn't get roses for less than $50.00 or so. And way back then...$50.00 was a huge amount of money! Needless to say, I was happy and sad at the same time! But then, last year was a special one too! Hubby got me special heart earrings from Kay jewelers...to match the necklace he had gotten me earlier.
But today, after all the holiday celebrations, just being together seems to be enough! I treasure our times with each other. Today, we shared our special breakfast, (as we do most weekends) we have already planned our Valentine dinner of steak, shrimp and fixins. And the best part, Bill is doing most of the cooking!
After trying most of today to make a post, I am sad to report that I am still having a few problems with my computer. Bill has worked on it numerous times and can't pin point the problem. He has found a few things, but nothing major that would cause the problems that I have been having. It takes me forever to do anything. But I keep plugging along.
I have decided to list a few things on Ebay...mainly household items that I have run across while cleaning out my attic, but also a few prim things will be listed as well. Personally, I think it's kinda fun. This is the first of many items that will be going up for auction.
Bidding starts at 99 cents! A great chance to get a web site favorite at a bargain price! Hurry, auction closes soon!
Well, I'm off to update my web site.
Be back soon with pics of what I've been working on...
