Well, I survived Saint Valentine’s Day, did you? Didn’t have any special candy, just ate a couple pieces of my 70 percent dark chocolate, just like every day. We did, however, get a couple of Caesar salads at McDonalds and a box of seven stuffed jalapeños (jusst for me) at Jack-in-the-Box for supper and a bowl of ice cream for an evening snack. That was the extent of my extravagance for Valentine’s Day and my birthday.
I got a call from my 90 something young Aunt, and she and her daughters sang “Happy Birthday to You” over the phone to me. Just loved it. Since they called when we were out getting our supper to bring home, the singing got recorded on my answering machine. I can now play it over any time I feel low. It will surely perk me up. I am blessed with great relatives, trouble is, they are all so far away.
This last weekend was potato planting time around here. I used to have a large garden. Gave that up a long time ago. Now that we have wild pigs all over the place, it would be useless.
Hope you all have a great week. Weather here will be warm and balmy. It feels nice for a change, after all that cold weather we have been enduring. Trouble is, it will now start to get real hot and humid. You haven’t lived until you have enjoyed 99 degrees with 99 percent humidity. Good for the complexion, they tell me. Didn’t help my looks any. . .
