Another Monday, another day off. Seriously. This is the 4th Monday in a row that I haven’t worked – the past 3 due to snow and today due to the President’s Day holiday. Although, given the 24″ we got dumped on us Saturday and Sunday, today may have wound up being another snow day.
It was a good weekend.
On Friday I took down all of the twinkle lights and greens and I put up Valentine’s Day decorations. I was just so sick of everything about my house at that point and I needed a change. So I gathered everything I could find that was red and I put it on the mantel in the living room and on the shelf of the bay window in the kitchen. And I felt better about it.
I picked up a new chalkboard sign last week and I wrote on it for the holiday.
I made Dale a book of coupons for Valentine’s Day. Coupons for things like “a movie of your choice” and “your favorite home cooked meal”. That’s the gift you get when your wife already spent $800 on a snow blower. Ahem.
I also made him cream puffs. Because family tradition.
For something different I made heart shaped cherry hand pies. They were cute. And pretty yummy.
We got together Saturday night with our friends. We were supposed to be going to a Valentine’s Day dance with Dale’s band but that has been postponed until this weekend because of the snow. What are the odds it won’t snow again this coming weekend? Heh.
It was a fun night, full of laughs and drinks and delicious food. And Quiddler. Oh, and a dip in the hot tub in the snow. That was fun.
Sunday it snowed and snowed some more but then the sun came out and everything sparkled.
And Sunday night ended with an impromptu visit with Dale’s brother that included lots of story telling. And a finished pair of socks for Dale. More on those later this week, of course.
How was your weekend?
