DH and I have been married long enough that Valentine’s Day is pretty much a non-event. He prefers to do something sweet every once in a while, unannounced and unexpected … and I like that much better … it means so much more that he chooses to do it instead of doing it because he feels obligated to do so. Besides, it keeps us free and available to watch the Ts if their mama and daddy take advantage of the special day.
Besides, this is the best gift idea for a hubby to give to his quilter sweetheart.That and time for his sweetie to devote to her
obsession passion … something my hubby gives every day, not just Valentine’s Day.
I spent Thursday morning quilting while watching Gone With the Wind (my favorite movie!) … I timed it perfectly as it was lunch time when we reached the intermission. Just as I was heading back to my recliner, I got a phone call from T#1 … the Ts requested Nana’s presence for a Minecraft party. The kiddos all love Minecraft, even T#4 (she was playing when I took that picture of her on the pool deck here). They all love the creativity … exploring for a settlement, mining for building materials, building and creating their own villages. While the game can be played solo, we can also join in someone’s “world” and play together. While I certainly wouldn’t play Minecraft on my own, I have to admit that it is rather fun to join in occasionally with DD and the Ts.
By the time I got home and finished up with dinner, I was too tired to get back to my quilting, so we watched the first 2 periods of the hockey game before calling it a night.
Yesterday was a movie marathon here at Chez Nana … I finished up Gone With the Wind and then watched Casablanca and Secretariat while quilting.
Like I said, DH and I have no plans to go out and do anything special today. We’re just a couple of homebodies (me especially). A dear woman from our old church passed and the visitation is this morning … we plan to go pay our respects (with a stop at Panera on the way for breakfast). We had talked about doing some shopping afterwards (I want to replace the shower head in the shower in the master bath), but the temperatures here are going to be plummeting, dropping almost 30 degrees over the course of the day. Too cold for me … I think I’d rather spend the rest of the day home, snuggled under some quilting instead.
Wishing you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day, however you choose to spend it.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
