"What Time Is It?"

Yet another question... and another answer, too! It's time to celebrate Valentine's Day! You're shaking your head. You think the LAST thing I need to be worrying about is the time, you're thinking that I don't know the DATE! No, I do. My Valentine and I celebrated at breakfast today. He didn't arrive home until 2 AM. (Suffice it to say that air travel isn't what it used to be. Retirement can't come soon enough!) He gave me this precious Swatch watch. I collect them. I have special occasion Swatches and regular ones, I love them all. Isn't this one sweet with the little cut-outs on the band and the embossed flowers on the face? My Valentine gave it to me in a teeny-tiny gift bag with a little-bitty heart tin enclosed, too. Little-bitty, but big enough... for exactly one piece of chocolate candy! Awwww. Isn't that just the cutest thing? The gift of time is a wonderful thing, especially when it can be spent sewing; unfortunately that won't be happening today! I'm cleaning the house today (it's Friday, I can be such a schedule-freak sometimes, ask my friends and family!), shopping, and making a Lobster Pie for my Valentine for dinner. Thanks, honey; you're the BEST!Life is Good!
...whatever the day, or time...

How sweet! It is great that you were able to spend time with your Valentine and that he remembered and got you such treasured gifts.

Sounds like a sweet celebration. I am off to do some cleaning today too - I have a long weekend and I feel like nesting.

Why does it not surprise me that you are a schedule-freak?!?!? Somehow I knew that, even without you saying so (not that I am or anything...)

We are so blessed, in so many ways.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Valentines Day, yes I know I am a day late, but also wanted you to know I (obviously) got your addy. I Thank you so very much. I was not having any fun in this motel room not being able to keep up with my little "WORLD". WG and I done our first event on Wednesday and all went well, will be here through Monday, then on to Texas. So far everything is pretty good, no complaints.
I absolutely love the quilt blocks for your son and his wife, what a great idea!
Take care, will keep in touch!
I am also able to post on my blog, so am going to try to keep up with that! Later, J

Sweet watch! And sweet little heart! We are celebrating today also. We have concert tickets tonight in the big Queen City.

Happy Valentines Day!

We learned long ago to celebrate when we can - not when the calendar tells us too *s* Glad you got some Valentine time with your fella.

I love Swatch watches too and used to collect them (about 20 years ago) then I stopped wearing watches and haven't collected another one since....seeing yours has made me wonder if I should start again!
