Happy Love Day
Here I am, sliding in under the wire (let’s face it: just barely, since most of you are not on mountain time) with my V-day well wishes. I had such good intentions this year. I bought a pack of cards in January, kept reminding myself to send them, and….well, no, it didn’t happen. I love the big declaration “I love you!” though, and I’ll just have to use the rest for general correspondence.
Paul and I actually exchanged gifts last night. I heard him rustling around (trying to set up the gift) when he got home from the studio so I got out of bed to see what was going on. He got me a lovely gift basket from a local shop called Oil & Vinegar. Olive oil, balsamic vinegars, and some egyptian rubs for meat. Oh how I do miss good food- I am just working on creating it myself here. He described the process of going to th store and getting to taste everything– I wish I had been there! Plus I love that the bottles are refillable so there’s no waste involved. In addition to the basket, he cooked me dinner and used some of the olive oil for bruschetta and pasta. Yum! It was really cute to see him cook dinner.
For him, I bought a handmade wooden Rube’s Cube Puzzle, which took him a good 20 minutes to figure out. I also gave him a little crocheted owl. It is Vowlentines day after all, and I wanted to tell him “Owl love you.” I am a bad punner, and he loves me anyway.
Hope you all had a lovely day.
