Day 230, Valentine’s Day 2012..

Today was Valentine’s Day 2012. We (my DW and I) have been seemingly celebrating since Friday night. Things are different this year with only one child home. And that child is 23 years old and able to take care of himself.  Friday night we did couples body wraps and couples massages. This was followed by a romantic dinner. Saturday and Sunday we spent most of the day together. Saturday night we had pan-fried flounder with Hollandaise Sauce. Sunday night we had a prime rib roast. Monday was a work day. She had Monday night yoga, I had Monday night lacrosse. Today we both worked. We had the left over prime rib for dinner.

We spent a few days together (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) then we had a do your own thing Monday followed by a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner Tuesday.  It works for us. Tonight we started burning the two homemade beeswax candles that my brother and his wife made from the bees that they kept over the summer. They were very pretty and anchored the table quite nicely this evening. DS1 was working during our romantic dinner. After he came home he went to the gym and then had prime rib leftovers for dinner.

I found a wall while riding my bike last year. Oh, you are so excited for me, I can tell!  Here’s the real story. While I riding my bike on the trail near my office I noticed a hand ball wall in a park along the trail. I thought (being the lacrosse player that I am) “What a good wall to practice against” and I promptly forgot about that thought. This week I decided to find out where that park was and go there during my lunch hour to practice. I went yesterday and froze my butt off. I was standing in the sun but the 15 – 20 mph wind caused the temperature to feel like 20 degrees. I was not dressed for 20 degrees. I did not last long. Today I went back to the bark. I ate my lunch in the parking lot then I went and practiced throwing and usually catching for 20 minutes in the sun. The ball only bounced off my face once. I’m thinking that maybe I should bring my helmet with me.

Tonight’s picture is of the kitchen table with the homemade beeswax candles. I hope you enjoyed Valentine’s Day. As I told my children this morning, Make somebody smile today. And, I did order my King Cakes today for Monday delivery.



Ready for a romantic dinner
