Happy and Cold Valentine's

Hope everyone had a nice V-day, even though it's long after the fact. We had a nice day, which happens to be our anniversary, as well, though it was cold as cold can be. We have been in the midst of a cold spell, to put it lightly, and the temps have been hovering around -20 degrees. That's Canada cold, though I seem to recall that we used to get cold days like that at least a few times a season, and I'm not a seasoned local. It's been such a mild winter that when the temps fall that low it really makes an impression.

We started the day with our V-day celebrations with cards, poems, and chocolate. How can you beat that? Mom has a creative project going on and we were helping her out, so early in the day we headed out to the big city and worked on it. Was it ever cold. We had to slip into the library to warm up, but we managed to get a lot done. Afterward we had a nice lunch at Lou's, which was a zoo, I'm guessing because of V-day. School break has started, as well.

We got home pretty late because there was a lot to be done. Lucky for us the house was still warm so we hunkered down by the fire and called it a night, even though A had band practice and I had to get her later in the evening. I'll tell you one thing, it's tough motivating to get out of the house when you're all warm and cozy and it's like Antarctica outside, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right? When you're a parent, with pleasure... sort of.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Scott for the pic.
