Happy Valentine's Day

love is in the air (or sink)

In honour of Valentine's Day I crocheted this "My Heart Dishcloth" from some Egyptian cotton in my stash. It's cute, isn't it? And it's a bit funny to think that we should now use this to wash dishes, isn't it?

We don't celebrate Hallmark holidays like Valentine's Day around here. We've discussed it and we've agreed to it - that's not how we roll. So it was entirely unfair on my part when I surprised Gavin this morning with a card and a milk chocolate heart filled with mini Rolos. THAT created a stir. Gavin feels like the rug's been pulled out from under him. He thought we didn't do that sort of thing. Hadn't we discussed it and agreed to it?

He's right. But in my defense when I saw the card at the cash register at the bookstore I couldn't help myself. It featured a bottle of hot sauce and it was just too perfect. And I couldn't help myself when I saw the Rolo-filled heart either. He LOVES mini Rolos. Oh dear, what have I done!

You're just keeping him on his toes. LOL. Making the relationship hop.

Uhoh - you're in trouble now! Dave and I have agreed just small things for V-day - a card and some candy (he also got socks)
I say absolutely NO flowers though - I hate the way the price is jacked up. We might go out to dinner on the weekend when it's not so busy too.

You just thought of him which I'm sure you would have done even if it wasn't Valentines and you saw those things. The cute card and the mini rolos = perfect love expression.

Hope you both are having a great day!!!!
