Happy Valentine’s Day!

Richard caught the cold that I’m just about over, and so it was that I went off to the nearby Costco to buy him some juice: orange, strawberry, mango smoothies, get-better stuff.

It was 5:30.

The place was almost woman-free. I have never seen such a stream of men coming in and out of there, and alone. They didn’t have to go but a few steps inside the door, either: there was a huge long wooden pallet set-up going between the front door and the registers, grab’n’go. Not just roses; this year for $50 you could get roses plus greenery plus probably baby’s breath (I tried not to look too close) and everything your sweetie who doesn’t know you’re stopping by there on your way home from work so you can surprise her in the morning could ever hope for.

I totally felt like an interloper who’d accidentally snuck in on their secret.

lol! My sweetie and I haven’t done the Valentine’s Day exchange thing in quite some time…I think that makes this kindof thing funnier to me! My mister and I just try to “treat” each other as often as possible, every day…a valentine card or gift would pale in comparison. 😉

Men just don’t have a clue, do they? But I guess last-minute candy and/or flowers are better than the year my sweetie gave me an iron for Valentine’s Day!

THere’s one of the reasons we don’t do Valentines Day – other than the perfunctory “Happy Valentines Day” kiss as one of us rushes out of the house. We spend our lives enjoying each other all year round.

Your other blog followers have the right idea!
Now … have you heard about the Jewish cure-all?

Their secret is out! Now, don’t let them know how we bake up 12 cupcakes but only give them 6 while brushing off crumbs of our skirts.
