A day late but not a wish short for a beautiful day filled with as many valentines as you can carry!

We had a wonderful day from start to finish. I am starting each day by walking, not jogging, on our tread mill for 30 minutes. May not sound like much to you, but to me it's a pretty big deal. Steve and I are also spending our days at our son's home. Steve is finishing the basement and I am refinishing old furniture for the basement. It's fun to accomplish something and keep each other company. Perhaps someone should check this observation with Steve, however, I may just be interrupting his thought process when I need assistance.

Our Valentines evening ended with our children, spouses and their children joining us for a wonderful dinner. Couldn't have asked for a better day. What fun to to have your favorite people surround you on Valentines Day.

Here's wishing you hearts of love from our house to yours.

Over 23 hours in the car with only the two of us together. We did have a break periodically when we took advantage of the local gas station restrooms. but that was the extent of it.

I.want to make it perfectly clear that this was not an imposition for either of us. After nearly 43 years together, Steve and I still enjoy each others company. Our trip, both ways, was a pleasant journey. The diversified landscapes captures the eyes and hearts of travelers. How can our world be so beautiful in so many ways?

It is such a privilege to have the opportunity to travel to Arizona to enjoy the scenery, weather, relatives and sights. Our dear neighbors entrusted their new Fountain Hills home to us, so this made the trip soooo much more pleasant.

We are safely home enjoying beautiful temperatures. There is a blizzard looming in the near future. Can hardly wait.

Sunny now,
