Pretties through windows

These are applied to the east window in our bedroom.
They replaced some cute little critters carrying garden harvest.

Now I’ll get to look at Valentine hearts every morning.

Husband brought four chocolate covered cherries home for me.
The high quality ones, from the chocolate specialty shoppe.

The kind when I have to sit still with a cup of good tea and really bask in the aura.
I’ll get to do this four times.  Fewer if I decide to share.
Fortunately, nobody else in the house likes chocolate covered cherries half as much as I do, so every one of the little yummies is mine.

For dinner, we had decided to go out into the country to the little place on the road to the lake.  The streets and roads were all plowed by Wednesday evening.  In some places, the piles were over 10 feet high, but we could see pavement all the way.

The sunset over snow-covered fields was beautiful.  On the right side of the road was a sign saying Deer Crossing, and on the left was a herd of deer feeding, at least 15 in numbers.
Husband slowed the car down even more.

The roadside diner was closed.  The drive had been cleared, but only nightlights were glowing.  Maybe the weather worked against business.

On the way home, DOF took this picture.  He also tried to pull off into a tractor run to get a better look at the deer in the field, but the headlights spooked ‘em.  Watching them leap away, their gracefulness would make Rudolph envious.

I’d had my heart set on a burger with the works, so we stopped by the drive-thru at McDs.

One of the advantages of being married awhile is being okay when plans are altered.
The diner will still be there another time, and food is food so long as we have a good companion.

The ride through the snow, the sunset, the deer made some great memories.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    I got a Happy Valentines Day and a kiss on the way out to work. 🙁
    Can’t afford anything, so that just had to be good enough.

    I would have loved to seen some deer, i don’t get to around here.
    Happy Valentines 🙂

    I love the little monkies on the window. What a wonderful idea and chocolate covered cherries.. . you are a loved woman!

    Something you said rings so true. “One of the advantages of being married awhile is being okay when plans are altered.”

    We were supposed to take a trip to Bakersfield to look at a new RV today and Bob has a cold. We put off going and just as you said, it is okay.

    Stay warm and stay healthy

    A kiss can be a very special moment when shared with the right person 🙂

    Thanks, Maria…being loved and legally married is a fine affair these days.

    The window clings were 60% off in the seasonal aisle at the grocery store when I stopped in for milk.
    I seemed helpless to resist the cuteness.
    I decided they shouldn’t be left in a box in the closet.

    My Mister just shrugs at some of my whims.

    Your Valentine whimsies are delightful. What a joy to wake up to in the morning. I see that George used discretion with the chocolates. Four is plenty when a girl is watching her figure.

    Jay and I didn’t do anything special but like you being together was the most important part of Valentines Day.

    I LOVE the happy look of your window!

    …AND those Cho. covered cherries sound good with a cup of hot tea! …although I’d choose coffee.

    Love,
