Star crossed love

Happy Valentine’s Day!

As a single woman, it’s usually just a day to me.  How pleasantly surprised was I to come home from the ballet this afternoon and see a present on my kitchen counter from the NoMH and his son.  Too cute!  Wonderful treat!

I have mixed feelings on this holiday.  I have been with people on Valentine’s day and had an awesome Hallmark holiday.  I have been with people on Valentine’s day and realized that the relationship was, in essence, over.  I have been alone on Valentine’s day and been miserable.  I have been alone on Valentine’s day and been perfectly happy.

Today has been a good day.  Overslept and missed church, which was a bummer.  Volunteered for the ballet, and then got to leave early (wasn’t a great show).  Came home to my candy surprise, took a nap, and then talked to a friend for an hour that I haven’t talked to since New Year’s Eve.  Come to think of it, we were together on Valentine’s about fifteen years ago (fourteen?).  Nice that we’re still friends.  And tomorrow is his birthday to boot, happy 40th!

I don’t have a lot to talk about today, it’s been a good day albeit uneventful.  So instead I’ll leave you with this photo of two ocean creatures not normally known for their canoodling, and wish you all a good night!
