Happy Valentines Day! Our day is starting out sweet and is destined to get even better! :-) Dayle gave me this perfect Valentine -- he said when he saw it it reminded him of the heart brooch I made and looked no further. I *ADORE* it! We took the boys out for dinner last night and we got them a fudge cake for dessert - then went to the drug store and got them a little heart shaped box of chocolates. I just gave them to them with one of my cards and they were so happy! Dayle and I have reservations at Bumpers Grill for dinner - I see a perfect filet mignon in our future.
Dayle brought in the mail and there was a padded envelope and when I opened it, it was a wonderful Valentine card from my dear blog friend Robin at My Nest of Yarn and Buttons blog!!
A very sweet message in the card and this wonderful photo album with the cutest quote on it - which I really agree with. :-)
So, ladies, remember to go have fun and don't overdo at home. LOL!! Thank you Robin! What a doll! I do hope you go visit her blog - she's a very sweet friend, a super knitter and a wonderful mom and grandmother.
I finished Hat #9! This is a fun and colorful one - good for a boy or a girl, too.
I am working on hat #10 now - a purple one - then I will give them to Taci and start working on something else. I wonder what? Maybe a few more flowers for my flower shawl? Or something with the new cotton I ordered? The choices are endless and exciting! Which one is your favorite?
Yesterday was a brilliantly sunny day and so warm that I didn't need a coat to go to the swimming pool. When I returned home I was happy to see the daffodils almost ready to burst forth!
We brought many daffodil bulbs to this farm place when we moved here over 30 years ago.. they have done quite well at spreading. Funny story - Dayle saw that someone had dumped a large amount of bulbs over an embankment near the railroad tracks and he saw them while driving the train. After work, he drove back to that spot and picked up as many as he could carry. We love them!
As I was walking around getting photos of the daffodils, I noticed that the Clematis was growing! Look at that tender new growth!
The Creeping Myrtle is also in bloom!
I spied two daffies that were very close to popping open!
A little zoom... I love how the creek and rocks are fuzzy, it brings the daffodil into sharp contrast. I was happy with this image.
I hope you're having a day full of love and happiness. I'll let you know how the steak was.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
