Today is Valentine's Day. Big deal, huh? Last nite we went with friends to a local venue to hear one of our favorite bands, The Wheezetones (two members have asthma - hence, the "wheeze" in Wheezetones!). The question was asked of our men friends "what are you getting your wife for VD?". Three out of four (my DH being the fourth) said they were buying flowers and jewelry. Jerry & I have never "done" Valentine's Day really. He has asked if I want roses or "flowers"... and my response has always been that I'd rather have flower seeds or seedlings that I can plant and have flowers all spring / summer / fall. Do you know how many packets of seeds or seedlings you can buy for the price of a dozen roses? Holy cow! We tried going out for dinner a couple times only to be told that the particular restaurant we went to did not take reservations or call ahead seating... and the wait would be 2-3 hours, or at another restaurant one needed to make reservations & we didn't think that far in advance to do so. Thank you, but NO! We used to buy cards for each other but really nothing else.
So... this morning in honor of Valentine's Day... I put a corned beef, potatoes, carrots, cabbage & a bottle of beer in the crockpot to have for dinner tonite. Ooops... guess I should've saved that for St. Patty's Day! Oh well! Corned beef & cabbage it is! We're going out with our friends again tonite to hear the Tijuana Gigolos (band). Another fun nite spent with friends & Gigolos... who could ask for more?! :o)
Be sure to give your honey a squeeze & tell 'em you love 'em!
