HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
Do you have romantic plans with your loved one? Something special planned for the kids? Heck, maybe you even have something special for your (4 legged, furry) pet!!
I had to chuckle at the mad house in the drug store yesterday. I was waiting in line to pick up my Rx and realized I had not seen so many men in one place since attending a livestock auction several years ago. There was men as far as the eye could see; some were looking pretty frantic, others were busy trying to decide; flowers or chocolate?? I wanted to scream ‘GET BOTH!!! YOU’LL THANK ME FOR IT LATER!!”
Nearby were two guys that I thought might exchange words instead of just looks. There was one box of the Pot O’ Gold candy left and they both wanted it!
There WERE women walking around with BAGS of candy so I assume that might have been for the kids and they didn’t look frantic, but even the bags of candy were pretty well picked over (and not too far from that aisle was HUMMING BIRD FEEDERS ALREADY OUT FOR THE SEASON!! Signs of true hope!).
I was so glad that I had already done my Valentine Day shopping…did it at the IGA store. I’ve told ya, Dan and I are simple people and so some of these holidays just roll off our backs (we try to treat each other like that special someone ALL year long).
Dan has to groom today and will be gone about 15-17 hours, so I gave him his Valentine present last night. He LOVES peanuts in the shell but we don’t buy them often, so that is what he got…Cajun Roasted peanuts in the shell, a big bag of them. And he knows Snickers is MY weakness, so I received two king size Snicker bars…and we’re both fine with it.
But whether you put on boxer's with little red hearts, bake a heart shaped cake with pink frosting or go out for a romantic evening, enjoy the day and remember YOUR certain someone every day. Life will be better for it!
