My weekend

Happy belated Valentine's Day, y'all.

Ours was pretty quiet round here. I was in a bummer mood because of work, and this nagging sinus situation, but we had a nice day. I bought SO a beard and mustache trimmer for his present, other than the sachet, and a singing dog I found at CVS and have to hide for the last 2 weeks. It's not the most romantic gift, I realize, but he needed it, and I realize now (yes, it took 32 years to figure it out) that the small things in life that show someone that you are thinking of them are so much more important than STUFF. I think I need to sit down after admitting that. But I did get him a nicer one, and I think he likes it.

He got me a teddy bear and a lovely card. And he fixed the closet door I broke. And we went to dinner. A new stufty, a repaired closet door, and a full stomach are AWESOME presents for me. We went to a little restaurant not far from the house. It was snowing when we left, so I was glad we didn't have any farther to go than we did. The restaurant was decorated in antiques, really cute. And the food was good and not really expensive. SO said we were so boring because we ordered the same thing, I told him not exactly, I ordered ranch dressing on my salad, and he ordered blue cheese. That doesn't make us boring, it just means we have similar taste. Besides, as I've aged, I realize the "boring" times in life are the best, at least they're the ones I remember the most.

I found another project or two to start this weekend. Green Apple's "I Love My Kitty" is one of my most favorite charts in the world, and I want to start it. It will be a pleasant break for me from my big projects, and it would just make me feel good to look at it. The other is from an OLD JCS from 1999, Raining Pins and Needles by Mary Garry. It looks pretty simple. I can do it!

Oh, you're so right!! Give me normal, every day stuff over loud and ostentatious anyday. Glad you and your SO had a lovely time.

Sounds like you had a lovely day! At least you got to spend it with SO :o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
