A lovely Valentines day!!

I really wasn't planning on saying much on Valentine's day but decided why not... You see I am not a big fan of the "holiday"... it just seems so pointless... so commercialized!  I guess maybe its because I see so many focus on sharing "the love" just one day out of the year.  I want my family to know my love 24/7 365 days a year... do I always succeed?  Not by my estimation!  But my family and husband DO know I love them even when I am acting unlovely!    and the other thing... how does it make all my single friends feel.  That they are unlovable?  lonely?  alone?  I pray such is not the case because singleness is most definitely not a case of being unloved!  I guess I just feel more comfortable showing my love for both family and friends throughout the year.  (okay off my soapbox!)   

That aside my hubby still likes to get me a card or write a little note and present me with something special.  Do you know what that dear man did?  He got me this: (picture removed at this time due to technical difficulties!)


You see this is truly a gift of love as he detests the vegetable.  In fact I am the only person in our family who likes it so I NEVER cook it!  
Now I have a little asparagus love in my refrigerator awaiting a brief steam, a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon!!

(ON a side note...) remember yesterday's comment about the missing battery and charger to the camera?  Well today the camera is missing, bag and all!  It can really make a person question their sanity.  I guess we will go on a search this evening once the whole gang gets home.  More than likely the youngest will know exactly where it is since I took it with us to take pictures at his school's science fair.  


  1. YUM!!! love some fresh asparagus :)

    I found some at the market last Saturday (it must be spring somewhere?!?) and cooked it up last night with some onions and pasta until they were crispy...mmmmm...

  2. Hi! I'm finally getting around to visiting everyone in the Circle of Bliss! Better late than never is usually my motto! :-)Our family loves fresh asparagus...we have a bed that should be producing pretty good this year!
    I'm looking forward to reading your blog. I've signed on to follow!
    Have a wonderful week!

  3. I loved your comment on Poppytalk about your 14 yo pouring paint in his bedroom... I think I am going to get on that with my boys! What a stellar idea!
