We got enough snow that they are actually cleaning the streets, first time this winter.....Del goes out and helps pile the snow and what he gets paid goes into our summer fund......looking mighty thin this winter so far....lol

We were supposed to get up to about 38 today now they are saying 34...but should start warming back into the upper 30s to low 40s.....I mean hey, it is Feb....

We don't do anything for Valentines we kind of left that kind of thing to when the kids were small....Del was always working so you could never plan anything and since they have gone whenever we would go out we would say it is for a birthday or this holiday or another but after retirement we go out more so we just quit giving it a reason to go out.....lol

But, there are times through the year when for no reason he will come in and give me something that maybe he bought or I will fix something that I know he really likes to eat......

I guess I knew how things were going to be from our first Christmas. We were married in November....and that Christmas we got points for our groceries and we used those points to buy gifts because we had no money.....we would spend 4-5 dollars a week on groceries and bring 2 bags of stuff home......you know that was a long time ago......any way our first Christmas he got me an electric pop corn popper.......now I don't mind popped corn maybe once a year......but it is his favorite. He can eat a dishpan full at a time......not anymore but back then he could.......

Then he got me frest flowers our second Valentine's day......they died in a couple days, the next year fresh flowers and they died.......the third time he brought in a brown paper bag and handed it to me and he said if these die , I give up.......lol.......It was crocheted carnations white with red trim......he had one of his producers make them for me....I know they didn't die but I really don't know what happened to them because we moved several time and they got lost in the shuffle.......

I've been battling a sore throat since Wednesday night last week. That day my Red Hat group went to Jackson (south of where I live) for a big Red Hat gathering. The lunch served was laced with MSG and by evening I had a migraine.
