Random Five Friday: Valentine Edition

Friday again, and time for R5F.

1.) We had snow yesterday!  ( I can hear you laughing, you know….)

2.) Yesterday, Gypsy was lying on her back in my lap (that is a lapful, by the way). I straightened out my legs, and she didn’t move.

(…close up. I finally sat her upright; she was content for so long, I was concerned the blood would rush to her head.) Silly girl.

3.)  Two years ago, my late cousin, Lona, sent me this “custom” Valentine by email. Miss her so much.

is always there for me day or night
is a good listener, no matter what my fear
is a friend, a sister, my favorite cousin
is always there with a tissue to catch all the tears,
brings me snacks to cure all my ills
shares with me her latest adventures, or sits
quietly beside me as the chefs of the world cook for us on tv
creates and sends the greatest greeting cards
loves me no matter what.
NAN – You Are My Valentine!
Love you, lme

4.) Just for fun, I shared this photo a few years ago in a post recalling the time Motor Man gave me a 6 carat carrot ring for Valentine’s Day.

5.) But, seriously, Happy Valentine’s Day to my sweetheart.

  2. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and everyone at your place. Looks like you’re having a lot of fun.

  3. Touching – brought tears to my eyes – I miss her too! That’s the kind of karats my husband keeps ‘threatening’ to give to me too. Beautiful sentiment and the best of Valentine’s Day to you.
