Belated happy Valentine's Day wishes to everybody. Any cards or flowers or chocolates in your day? I got dh a card, and some store-bought apple turnovers for dessert. We don't usually have dessert so that was a treat. Most of the day was spent on choosing a health insurance plan and then getting signed up in time but now we should be set with a pretty good plan.
Its a 3-day holiday weekend in both Canada and the U.S. Will you have Monday off from work? Do anything different on the weekend? Or will you be hunkered down with the latest storm?
I'm hoping to get a planting bed amended on Saturday morning and get the dahlia bulbs planted. Sometime in the afternoon my SIL arrives, I will give her a ride to the airport and she is leaving her car in front of our house for a week. Dh is a guide for a hike in the desert, and since he will be about an hour from his parents he will go for a visit with them after the hike, then return home late. Our anniversary is Monday (36 years!) and to celebrate we are going out of town on Sunday, driving about 3 hrs northeast to the area of Joshua Tree Nat'l Park. We're staying in a motel and will spend Monday doing something---certainly going into the Park but checking out the surrounding area too...although that might be completed on Sunday night, depending on how much there is to see! We'll leave for home in the afternoon. What I need to do now is to research the area so we can develop a plan for what to do and when. I have never been to the Park or even that area so that is my "something different" for this weekend.
I hope you all have a good weekend and keep warm and dry.
