Friday, February 14
Because this was a beautiful winter day ~ and Valentine’s Day ~ I am including other pictures from the day.
Snow that had fallen in previous days was being carefully sculpted by the wind.
Angie and Darvin sold these sandwiches to raise finances for the adoption of a child from Ethiopia.
Thank you Diane (and family) for this delicious gift.
I didn’t think about bringing my camera, so used Cerwin’s cell phone to take a few pictures. This was my fabulous salad. I want to go back just to get this and the delicious poppy-seed dressing again.
Cerwin chose a red velvet whoopie pie and chocolate-covered strawberry.
I am not sure why these two photos are so much smaller. Maybe I turned the phone sideways, changing the pixel size.
We were impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant and their effort to make the evening beautiful for couples who were celebrating Valentine’s Day. Each man was given a long-stem rose to give to his sweetheart.
This was the fifty-first Valentine’s Day that Cerwin and I celebrated together. Our first Valentine’s Day was in 1963 – a few days after announcing our engagement.
The hint of another birthday gift in this marathon came in the mail in a mystery envelope ~ of course there was no return address.
The note inside read, “Keep Monday open.”
What could that mean?
