… is Valentine’s Day! 

The above photo of my nieces, taken 20 years ago; the clue? Kayla, the baby in the photo, celebrated her 21st birthday last month and in the photo, she looks to be about a year old.

Despite brilliant sunshine,  the day has been bone cold~ in the low 20s.  I took several walks and really regretted being out.  The exercise was good and I give myself a gold star for braving the cold – but I don’t think I’ll be so virtuous any time soon  – especially if the temperature stays in the 20s.

Nephew Chris brought his brother Elias chocolate from the Valentine’s exchange at school. Apparently, Chris doesn’t eat chocolate (a fact I did not know)… but Elias does.  He was delighted and made short shrift of the treat!

Sending Valentine’s wishes  your way (and warmth if it’s cold).

  1. It didn’t make it to 20° in Wisconsin today, but the sun was out so I didn’t mind too much. Admittedly, I only went out to pick up Hannah early from day care. I was offered a chance to go along when Tracy walked the dog, but I passed! It’s supposed to reach 50° by Wednesday. Happy Valentine’s Day!


  2. Brr – 20 degrees is cold. Our temp was up to 41 with little wind so we braved an afternoon walk. What a sweet Valentine photo. Happy Valentine’s Day. Stay warm and safe.


  3. Gosh, that’s cold. Honoré! Hoping the rest of the day passed more contentedly in the warm. That heart’s a pretty way to frame a photo … What a lovely Three Graces they are :).


  4. I normally walk in the morning, but I had to take my daughter to a dentist appointment yesterday and so did not get out until after lunch. And I’m glad of that — even at the warmest part of the day, it was still pretty frigid! I’m really looking forward to tomorrow, when we’re supposed to get into the mid-50s. I hope by now you’ve thawed and that you have some warmer days in your forecast!
