Sweet Day

Image result for vintage valentines day

Don't you miss the 'old' type of Valentine cards?  They were so much more romantic than the ones you see today.  I do hope you are having a good day,  whether you have a 'valentine' or not.  Make this day special just because you yourself are special.

I finally got my car washed today.  I have been wanting to do that for over 2 weeks.  Everytime I get ready to go to the car wash, the forecast calls for rain.  The next week is supposed to be sunny and lovely.  I was also lucky that hubby decided to take his car to the car wash and then called to tell me there was no waiting.  Yup, my car is now all spic and span.  (Do they even make spic N span cleaner anymore?)

OOPS, I digress.  

So far today I have gotten a load of laundry washed, dried, folded and waiting to be put away.  My house plants have been watered and my mantle clock wound up.  I made a grocery list and sent the husband off to the store.  This gives me a bit of time to work on the shawl again.  I have about 16 rows left and I will be done.  The yarn I have left, does not look like it will make it that many rows, which is fine.  This shawl is HUGE already, but I want to use all the yarn I can.  This is stash yarn I am trying to use up.  (There is a lot of that type of yarn)  I already have another pattern ready to go for another prayer shawl when this one is done.  I am not going to make it a priority though.  I will just put it in my bag to take to the prayer shawl meetings and work on it there.  Remember, the commissioned projects are next up on my needles/hooks.

Tonight, Hubby is going to grill up a couple of nice steaks for us.  I will make baked potatoes and a lovely green salad to go with it.  There are still some of my 'from scratch' brownies for dessert.  I have a bottle of wine chilling for the occasion too. Hopefully we can find a good movie to watch to put a perfect end to a lovely day.

Do you have any sweet plans for today/tonight?  

Until next time...............happy crafting!

Somewhere along the way I had collected a set of old-timey valentine-y cards. They're not specifically Valentine's day cards, but anyway... I used three this week to send my sons a little "thinking of you" note. I really need to do that more often - with my sons and others.

I got myself a few Valentine treats and had a nice outing to Walmart. A friend called and my daughter and I watched some podcasts. Your dinner sounded good!

Since it was Friday, my husband was off. He got me a new plant that's supposed to blossom a fragrant flower. I made gourmet mac n' cheese for the ohana and probably knitted and watched a new, K-drama my tween keeps talking about.
