Valentine's Day

Yesterday was Valentine's Day.

I typically have roses or a floral arrangement delivered to Spouse's office on Valentine's Day.  He loves flowers, and I love the attention he gets by receiving them at work.  But with the ER visit and eye drops 4 times a day, I kind of got distracted and didn't get them ordered.  I could have gotten my friend Paul the florist to quickly put something together and deliver it, but I was afraid I may get the left-overs, so I decided to do something different.

Since Thurs is my day off, I went to the fabulous floral dept at my local Safeway.  We ordered the flowers for our wedding from there and were very happy with them.  I bought a vase with a dozen lavendar roses with greenery and baby's breath, a variety box of Ferrero Roche chocolates, a bag of Dove dark chocolates, and a card with the perfect saying.  I set them up on the kitchen peninsula for Spouse to see when he got home. 

Spouse was a little surprised to not get the flowers at work, but was happy with the results of my change in plans.  He went to his personal trainer appointment and I made (HelloFresh) dinner.  We had a simple but nice Valentine's Day dinner at home.  Then we watched the movie "Valentine's Day" on TV.

in this house, fancy chocolates, red roses, cards, and a gift card to chipotle (from the cats) were shared on thursday.

today we went to a japanese restaurant for a nice VD lunch. we never go out on the day itself; too crowded. we had the restaurant to ourselves mostly.

I found your blog through a link on Bosguy and really enjoy reading about your adventures with Spouse. I'm a man of a certain age as well (also a Realtor) and appreciate your positive outlook and lifestyle. Glad you guys had a nice trip to PV and a good holiday. Sorry about the eye thing, though. I know that's a hassle. Thanks for doing what you do!
