With my milk chocolate Bordeaux in hand I left and hoped that the ribs in the car--this was the day I locked myself out of the Clown Car--were not warm. Luckily I didn't have any frozen items. Phil was surprised and I'll bet he hasn't even opened his Bordeaux yet. (He only got a half pound box) This is what they look like on the inside. If you haven't ever had a Bordeaux I suggest you do so.
I talked him out of buying flowers and also forgot he was taking me to lunch and so I ate lunch while he showered. It's an economical Valentine's this way.
This afternoon I baked and delivered Ginger Cookies (Recipe here) to the sisters I visit teach. Well, to be totally honest, Phil delivered them, as the driveways were icy. He always does the hard stuff in this marriage. Like today, he shoveled the driveway and sidewalks four times as the snow just kept falling. I sat in the rocking chair and watched it snow. I thought I should participate in the endeavor somehow and watching seemed like a good idea. I'm nice, like that.
So, it was an uneventful Valentine's Day today. A lazy one, but nice. I even had a nap so I can stay up until the wee hours seeing how everyone else celebrated the day.
I hope yours was happy and if it wasn't as happy as you thought it should be, here are a couple of quotes that I like:
Be strong now because things will get better. It might be stormy now but it can’t rain forever.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
I've googled the quotes and can't find the author's. If you know please tell me so I can give credit.
