Red tulip

Yesterday, while driving back and forth to town by myself, I kept thinking of brilliant things to post.  I need to find a tape recorder.  Even making some sort of mental note to recall the brilliance failed.  As usual.  Oh well.

So, today, I say Happy Valentine’s Day to you all.  Am I the only one who has never been out to dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Most likely.  Oh well.  I have spent most of my life either being passionate about a cause, to the exclusion of normal everyday life, or caretaking various family members.   I have been in love once, infatuated several times.  Love and courtship are not something I am familiar much with.  I have never been out on a real date.  Just the idea scares the stuffing out of me, which would explain why I have never dated.  When I was younger, I would go out with a bunch of people.  I just do things backwards.  Married yes, date no.  Just weirdness.  I like that word.  It describes a lot of my life, even the weather.  Seems that our mild winter may give way to some fluffy white stuff.  That is fine, for a while.  Like perhaps take some photographs as I usually do, then it can leave.  After experiencing sliding backwards on Highway 395 at 3 am on Christmas morning one year then off the road (I was going to the hospital to pick up my husband from the ER)  I am so over ice/snow.  I know that God has saved me for a reason, first the broken neck (should have been dead- or at least toast), then the “should have been a bad wreck” icy slide.

I am just still getting up each day, being grateful to be able to do so.  Working hard and looking to make this situation we are in turn around.

Hope your day is what you want it to be, enjoy it!
