I am writing this pretty early in the morning while I still have time. There is so much to do today. We are having our second annual Friendship Feast after church today. I made 5 lbs. of potato salad last night. This morning I am making green bean casserole. I know my one friend is bringing pork and sauerkraut and another fried chicken. There is going to be homemade pound cake and Valentine cookies. Mashed rosemary sweet potatoes and garden salad. Meatball sliders and spinach pie. We eat good over there! I will be taking pictures and share them with you tomorrow.
On Friday my friend Genny and I went to church and decorated for the feast. What I didn't think of, she did. What she didn't think of, I did. We worked so well together and the place looks beautiful. We can't wait for the people coming to see how pretty it is.

Because we are having "dinner" at church today I made Joe his Valentine's dinner last night. I made lamb chops, fingerling potatoes and green beans. He loved it!
Joe gave me an early Valentine's gift. Every year he gets me one red rose. It started on our first Valentine's Day together when he was out of work and all he could afford was one rose. It has now become a tradition with us and I look forward to my rose. If you look back you can see all the different roses he's given me over the years. Here's the rose he gave me this year.
But there was something different this year. He gave it to me in a beautiful planter.
All the plants are so pretty. And when it gets larger I can separate the plants and have individual pots.
And now it's off to print up some games and make my casserole. Then get ready for church and make a run to Rite Aid for prizes. Yes, I did buy prizes already but even though I've looked for three days I can't find them. You know I'll find them as soon as I get home today.
Hope you all have a wonderful day today. I know I will.
