Pretty pink and white.
Valentine's Day was a busy one for us. We didn't do anything romantic and special like a dinner out but we had a good and productive day. It was a typical Saturday but I did make a nice breakfast for us with scrambled eggs, toast and coffee....by candle light. Why not.
I picked up a pretty mixed bouquet of tulips at the grocery store on Thursday to enjoy for Valentine's weekend. Murray bought me a heart box of Lindor chocolates too. :)
Murray spent most of the day doing plumbing and installing new a new kitchen faucet at our son's house. He had to run to town twice to get parts! We are dog sitting this weekend as our son and his wife went to Montreal for a Montreal Canadiens /Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game. (Montreal won 2-1 in overtime) I did laundry and cleaned our house a bit. In the afternoon I went to the orchard down the road as they had a nice sliding hill opened to the public. I'll share photos of that soon. I had a great time although I didn't go sliding. It was really cold and the clouds were just starting to come in but thankfully there wasn't any wind blowing. I went to our son's after and helped Murray by taking the dogs outside and entertaining them a while. They kept bothering him while he worked wanting him to play. lol
The sun shining on the Kalanchoe.
We had a nice dinner at home....by candlelight. The big storm started as light snow around 9:00 and around 10 the power went out! Yikes. Thankfully it was just an hour long interruption that affected 100 customers in our area. It was strange to see the neighbours on one side had no power but the ones on the other did. Murray switched the modem to battery power and I kept on my computer. I love technology and a smart husband who can make it work. :)
We woke up to a blizzard this morning. Churches are cancelled and probably other events. Fredericton was having it's last weekend of Frostival - a winter festival - which was well attended last weekend and yesterday. Today, most of the events might be cancelled due to the storm. I am going to have a relaxing day, read blogs and a book, maybe have a nap, drink tea, and eat chips and chocolate. :) I'm stocked up on 'storm' chips and chocolate so we're good to go. I really hope we don't get the 35+ Cm. of snow they are predicting! If you're weathering storm today I hope you are cozy and safe.
I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day with someone special.
Thank you for visiting. Have a wonderful Sunday.
