I hope you all had a lovely day. Mine was rather low-key, but that's OK because I am just so tired. I've done a lot of running around this week so I needed a down-time day. I'm beginning to realize this old body just doesn't do what it did when I was 27.
This morning I heard Joe banging around upstairs. I asked if he was OK and he said yes and don't come up. He then came downstairs and handed me a white box. Inside was a white leather drawstring bag and in that was a beautiful necklace. I said, "Oh, you got me a diamond necklace!" He answered, "Uh... yeah. OK. If you want to believe that." Ha, ha. But real stones don't really matter to me. The fact that he got it for me, was thinking about me, is what counts.
After breakfast Joe said he was going to the corner store. I insisted on taking him because he has been a little unsteady on his feet as of late. When we went in, he headed right for the flowers. Every year he gets me one red rose and he hadn't gotten it yet. There was only one red rose left and it didn't look very good. In fact, it looked half dead. But there was a beautiful coral rose there that I fell in love with. So I asked if I could have that one instead. He said, "Of course" and got me that one. It has opened up since it's been in our warm house. So pretty.
The single rose is a very special thing with us. He's been giving me one rose every year since our first Valentine's Day together.
We had a snow shower today. Fortunately it was just a dusting and didn't really lay.
I made steak and mixed veggies for dinner. It was good. I also baked an apple pie, but it wasn't done in time. Joe went to bed before it was cool enough to eat. Oh, well. He'll get it tomorrow.
Now it's off to make potato salad and bake a ham for tomorrow's church luncheon -- our Friendship Feast. I can't wait. It's going to be so much fun in spite of our cold weather. It's supposed to be a high of 15*F. (-9*C.) tomorrow with a wind chill of -20*F. (-29*C.) Brrr!
I'm going to end by showing you a picture of our front window. I can never get a picture without the lights across the street reflecting in the glass. But hopefully you can get an idea of what it looks like.
I have off from work on Monday for President's Day. I plan to take down all the Valentine's stuff and put up St. Patrick's Day. After that it's Easter and Spring. I think we've almost made it through the winter.
