I stayed home and did nothing!

I watched a couple old romantic movies...

and just drove to Mckinleyville to a

Denny's restaurant at about 1:00 A.M.today

after Valentines day...I ate a salad,drank

a cocoa, and a cup of coffee at a table

until 4:00 A.M. while I talked to a Non-romantic friend.

No Valentines or calls all day long!

Hope some of you had some fun anecdotes

and stories about your day?   [:)] [;D]

I sat at home drinking coffee and writing up my project.  [:-\]
Then I went to bed.

The first thing I did was send a few Ecards to a birthday sheep.  Then I answered my door to find out my daughter sent a dozen roses to me...and then I hurriedly called the florist in Pensacola and had a dozen pink roses sent to her...as well as my best friend, Isa and her daughter Blanca. 

Then hubs came home and gave me a silly little card about someone farting in the card shop...then he gave me another one with coupons on it, and a single rose...then he turned and saw the roses Ash sent me...then at his single rose....but I was equally happy with his single one.  THEN...I cashed in one of the coupons...the one that entitled me to one free, uninterrupted nap.

Bought roses Tuesday - on sale at just 10% of what they went for the previous day.......

I was a little busy on monday, as there is currently a transport workers strike on, and I suddenly got a promotion to driver for most of this week in addition to my normal work. Been lovely and hot for the whole week, in the low 30's every day. ;-)

I took the woman I love for a beautiful meal at a top class restaurant in Paris, where I had arranged for a bouquet of 1 dozen red roses to be delivered to her at the table by a violinist who then played 'And I Love Her'.

We sat at the window overlooking the Seine and just as we finished our meal, a pyrotechnic display began and ended with the words 'I Love You' written in sparkling silver across the night sky.

The pianist played 'Once, Twice, Three Times a Lady' as the Maitre d' approached our table. He clicked his fingers and the wine waiter brought a bottle of the finest Dom Perignon which he deftly and skillfully opened and poured into two crystal champagne flutes. I and my beloved interlocked arms as we drank to our undying love for each other.

With another click of his fingers, the Maitre d' summoned the head waiter. He placed in front of my beloved a silver platter with a domed cover.

"Voilą", he said, as he lifted the silver domed cover to reveal an open crimson velvet box in which there sparkled a diamond encrusted platinum necklace.

"For you, my love" I said as I gazed into the deep pools of her sweet and wonderful eyes.


BTW I gave the wife a take-away burger.

Gave the wife a new snow shovel- she just hasn't quite been getting the job done with the old one.

Don't know why she turned so cold and aloof?  I even pasted little hearts on the handle! [B)]

Karen, not thankfully in New Zealand, I would be truly shaken up. I do know people there, but no info about them so far, hope they are all right and safe, as they are near Christchurch.

I live in South Africa, on the coast, far away from earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons and such, though there have been the odd tornadoes and tsunami's.
