Hi snicker doodles! Monday was the second Valentine’s Day in a row that I have spent without Miguel. It’s sad, but it makes me super happy to think that the next one will be spent together!
I decided that I wasn’t going to let the distance between my Valentine and I get me down. I couldn’t afford to have another emotional day, so I woke up and went straight to working. I got so much done in only an hour and a half. Once I got to a stopping place, I rewarded myself with some scrumptious eats.
|Blueberry pancakes and banana.|
Pancakes are God’s gift to the world.
Fueled on blueberry goodness, I accomplished still more homework. Great success.
More homework completion was followed by more food.
|Not sure why my lunch looks so yellow... Rutabaga, spaghetti squash with onions and tomatoes, and toast with Cheddar cheese.|
In an effort to keep up the momentum on my feel-good day, I did some Valentine’s Day good deeds. As requested, I sang at the assisted living where my mama is a beautician and made some old folks smile. Why not spread joy when you can? Sadly, no pictures or videos were taken from this event. L Just trust me when I say it was good.
After the Valentine’s Day performance, the fam exchanged gifties.
|Beer and flowers. Gigantor knows the way to my heart.|
It was a perfect accompaniment to my dinner.
|Pot roast and quinoa snuggling in my bowl.|
I followed it up with some V-Day chocolate from my mama. My Valentine’s Day was significantly better than I had hoped. I can sleep happy. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
