When I hear the words, Valentine’s Day, I get all warm and fuzzy and think of gorgeous red roses, beautiful red and white decorations at The Homespun, creative crafts at What Happens at Grandma’s, or a wonderful school day at Amaraland.
And, then I come to my senses and remember we are still in the dead of winter here in New England and everywhere you look there is nothing but white.
We cleared the snow from the storm last night, freezing temps are coming in tomorrow, and there is another snowstorm coming our way on Thursday. I guess we’d better keep the John Deere gassed up, the shovels at hand, and the pellet bags open.
This past weekend the grandkids had a sleepover and the weather was okay so we were able to get out and about.
Besides our shopping trips, we also went to see The Lego Movie. It is a really nice little movie with a lot of positive messages – highly recommend it. My grandson also took some of his savings and bought the new Lego Movie video game for his XBox 360. Great game – just like playing ‘in’ the movie.
We also watched The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Talk about the yin and the yang of movies. This one kept you on the edge of your seat, and I would highly recommend it for people who don’t get scared of really ugly creatures or imaginary things that go bump in the night. It wouldn’t be for little ones who might have bad dreams. Can’t wait to watch The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug so we can see if the hobbit and the dwarfs can defeat the dragon.
For me, this week holds the start of a new quilting project for an upcoming birthday present. It’s always warm and bright in my sewing area, and there is no shoveling required. ☺ When Valentine’s Day does arrive on Friday, I’ll spend a little time with my special Valentines.
Here’s hoping you have a great week and a wonderful Valentine’s day with those who are special in your life. ♡
