I went to see my mom yesterday, the first time in three weeks! The snow has kept me from the one hour drive to visit. The roads here are still treacherous.
My sister picked me up...and about 20 minutes before she was to arrive I decided I needed to take my mom a Valentine. I had the box already...and I used a copy of her glossy photo from a modeling shoot in the very early 50's.
I really had to rush on this....and we stopped and got her some m&m's for the inside. She didn't recognize that the picture was her. She also kept starring at me throughout the visit....almost as if she was trying to figure out who I was. Whenever I caught her starring at me I'd wink and whistle at her. It made her laugh.
And while we're talking about Valentines.....28 years ago yesterday....Cupid put me and my sweetheart together.
I was only 18 when I met him....and we met at a club in Georgetown (in DC). Eight months later we were married! It's been a FAST 28 years..... And gravity has certainly done it's job at warp speed too over the past 28 years!
Today was spent cleaning and reorganizing my craft room STILL. I glanced out the window around 4:00 and saw the deer coming down the driveway...right down the little trench that I have shoveled.
They discussed amongst themselves that this was not a good eating spot....so they moved on down the road. I wanted to throw some English muffins out there...but doubted they'd like them. They're store brand anyway.
I noticed this guys head peaking out of my flowerpot on the porch. The snow has started to melt and I wondered how he got in there in the first place. But I already knew.....my husband likes "the element of surprise" and constantly plants little oddities around the house for me to find. Nonetheless....the little gnome looks quite happy keeping a watch on the front yard.
Have a wonderful week!
PS......Tomorrow (a government holiday) was supposed to be a school holiday for my daughter. Then they said "sorry! too many days missed because of the snow! You have to go!" Then today they said "Sorry! We STILL do not have the parking lots ready for school buses- so stay home!" Geeze! She's been out of school since Thursday February 4th! So we're guessing schools will re-open on Tuesday. But guess what? ANOTHER snow storm is supposed to mosey on through here tomorrow. Monday....which means....Tuesday....maybe no school again!
