Valentines Day revisitied

Valentines day was pretty busy around here what with work and school and such so I never got a chance to share some of the lovely things we enjoyed.
Here is my card made by the lovely Miss V.

She made a Valentine booklet for the big guy and me

She filled it with vintage (ancient) pictures of me and the big guy and the family

and then added appropriate Disney movie quotes
My favorite one is up at my least favorite work site, it's from Robin Hood:
"Someday there will be happiness again"
gotta love that!

 not only is that baby V, but it's also baby me and big guy and the god-parents!

this one is REALLY baby me!
yes, that's all hair.  Had just had a little trim ;-) 
seriously within a couple years I was sitting on it

then she made some adorable Valentine pretzel sticks

they went great with the heart cookies I couldn't resist at the bakery

Friday happenings... tra la la

such a LOVELY day......
especially when one has it off.
and lots of lovely homework to keep one occupied.
I am getting ready to motor off to the blood center where I hope to do yet another double donation, since that saves some time in the long run.  I'll let you know how that goes.  On occasion I have a wee bit not enough iron to do a double.  Plenty for the single, but the double is a bit tougher.  I have been diligently eating lots of iron rich foods this week, including.......
Lima beans.
not my favorite. 
but if you get the little ones and add lots of cracked black pepper, they are tolerable and almost tasty.

tonight being Friday.  And a Lent Friday. I will be doing some tuna casserole.
I pretend it's American peasant food so it sounds a bit more classy.
Don't get me wrong.  I like tuna casserole.  The big guy?  Not so much.
Fortunately (or not) for him, he will be at work so I will partake of my peasant food all by myself.

or will I....................

study break

Snowstorm Crystal....
I'm taking a petite study break tonight.
when I do such a thing I love to visit my bloggy friends.

I don't always leave a comment though.

hanging head in shame.

It's like peeking in a window instead of just knocking on the door isn't it?

bad me!
Last Friday evening until Saturday morning we were visited by Crystal.

Snowstorm Crystal (yeah,  Crystal arr arr arr) was really the biggest one this winter, how strange is THAT for March?  Last year we were still buried under 6 feet of snow in March, and that wasn't the snowbanks either!

but once the sun came up.....

the snow really did sparkle like crystal.

it really is pretty...........

so fresh.
so white.
so clean.

okay I'm over it, can we have spring now?

one small comment

Let me just say. 
College at 48 is not for sissies.
I'll be back as soon as I can.
I'm sorry!
