Happy Valentine's Day

It is a beautiful Valentine's Day!  We don't go all elaborate on Valentine's, but we do exchange cards and small gifts.  I don't want to say we're chalk and cheese, but we are chalk and chocolate.  Mac got the cheese, a wonderful Dry Monterrey Jack and I got the chocolates, Lindor truffles and Reese Peanut butter chocolates, both to be eaten very slowly so they'll last.

Worked out in the garden getting my cabbages planted, very, very late.  And the seeds were so tiny I'll be thinning them forever.
The sugar snap peas are up and I'm hoping the squirrels quite stomping on them.  They don't eat them, but they're walking all over them.
Mac has gone off fishing for a couple of hours.  He loves to fish and this is the first time he's gone in forever.  He's strictly a catch and release fisherman, it's the thrill of the hunt that he enjoys.
I baked us a tiny Valentine's cake, it's red velvet with chocolate frosting and we'll have it tonight.  Hope you have a great day.

  4. That sounds like a BIG Valentine celebration to me!

    I wonder why you don't like musicals? I think they have some wonderful songs - Cole Porter, Gershwin and so on.

  10. I got Lindor truffles, too, dark chocolate of course. And A&W twizzlers. Nothing but the best! It's great that you have a start on your garden already. I'm anxious to get out there, too.
