Achey breaky

Yup it is Valentine's Day & I am guessing A will come home with flowers & maybe even chocolates (to be fair, he comes home with chocolates often, mostly so he can eat them but hey, it's the thought that counts).  He might even arrive with lemon cake -my most absolute favorite- which he also been known to just do.  Either way or empty handed, it's all fine; I am not one for setting much store by these once-a-year days as a measure of true feeling.  After all, this is the man who, when told by the judge we were husband & wife "before the eyes of G*d & the state of Texas" looked into my eyes & said "There's two institutions I believe in".

What really matters is the other 360-odd days that he comes home (again, often with chocolate) & the house looks just the same (i.e. untidy, or worse) as it did when he left that morning, because I have been quilting.  How was that for a segway?

& so I have managed to get thru this months Block Lotto& Friday Block Party blocks before the middle of the month or the middle of the week.

  1. I just got home from the supermarket where all the men had flowers of some sort in their carts. I guess the flower growers have gotten the guilt tripping down pat.
