Valentines Day is just around the corner. The time when most people think of cheesy cards, chocolates, and stuffed animals of all shapes and sizes. Well, either that or stocking up on liquor, anti-depressants, and kleenex. I find myself feeling a bit more like it's Thanksgiving. When I think of Valentines I of course think of Chuck and I am reminded of how thankful I am to have him in my life. He has been such a blessing and with him I feel finally complete.
After all my lessons yesterday, Chuck and I celebrated Valentines early. Monday is such a crappy day for it to fall on, so with the kids off to Grams for the weekend, we went home and showered and changed. I got to dress up and actually look like a girl again....on most days this is a major accomplishment when I tend to come home in boots, breeches, covered in dirt,horse hair, hay, sweat and an unidentified smell. We went out to dinner with no reservations. We're rebels like that. That also meant we had to find a place without an hour wait for a table. We finally settled at The Crown and Goose, an English pub in the Old City. We had been meaning to try there, but hadn't gotten to it yet. It was really good! We definitely have to go back. After dinner we went to see the play Heather was in. It was funny and she was excellent...hands down the star of the show. After, we all went out for coffee and dessert before heading home for the evening.
Today is suppose to be beautiful, the start of a week of really nice weather....is that Spring I smell coming? We are taking advantage of a nice day and heading to the farm. I'm going to work Pilgrim and Johnny while I let Chuck ride the Walking Horse Mint Chocolate. Hopefully we can get some good pictures and video.
