How was your Valentine's Day? We had a good one. Remember when we went to the Candy Basket with the chocolate fountain? Well, we went there to get some boxes of chocolates for the boys.. and we got one for Kristi.. and one for us to share. :-) I thought I'd show it to you.. yes, there are a few missing already and they were good!
We got the "nuts and chews" box. We both like nuts and caramels. Want one? What is YOUR favorite in a box of chocolates?
We set out the boxes of chocolate along with some plush elephants and cards for them. They were happy!
Dayle and I had dinner reservations at Bumper's Grill, our go-to place for filet mignon. It was perfection as always. So tender and done just the way we like it.
And because it was Valentine's Day we ordered a creme brulee to share. I hope you had a wonderful day.
I started my new silk and alpaca pink pussycat hat and realized that the yarn was very thin and it might need some adjustment. I texted Meredith and asked her opinion and she suggested that I double the yarn so I went with her on it and this is working out well! Thanks, Mere!
This is the hat that I made for my new friend and I think I'm meeting her today at the club to give the hats that Meredith and I made for her and her friend. I will be sure and share a photo of them both wearing their new hats as soon as I can get one.
I got a package from England yesterday! Amy from the blog "Love Made my Home" crocheted 6 little hats and sent them to me to donate to the "Operation Diaper Bag" project - items for US Military families that are expecting a baby. Thanks, Amy, you are amazing!!
I had to show this to you. My granddaughter Jenna in Ohio drew this design for her Girl Scout Troop's Father-Daughter Dance and she won the contest so they are making these up in patches for the girls.. isn't that neat?
My news portion of my post today is that the National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, has resigned as it became apparent that he spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyack about the sanctions the US imposed on Russia due to their interference in the presidential election BEFORE the election. Now we are curious how much the current POTUS knew of what he said and of course if Flynn was ordered by him to assure Russia he would get rid of the sanctions. Click HERE for the story.
Again - our country is rocked by scandal and lies. Heaven help us. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
