Happy Valentine's to You!!

Love and hugs to all of you on this Valentine's Day.

You know I am a sentimental sap and just want you all to know how much I love my blogging friends.


Today is pretty much a normal day around here. Kids to school and piano lessons later and for dinner, BLT's and potato salad. Maybe something sweet for dessert but my rear does not need this. I have some goodies for the kids and hubby.

Finally I am joining Art @ Home's Love Poem Linky Party. After much searching for one I thought really evoked my feelings for the one I love, I chose this simple poem. My favorite time of day is when my man pulls up out front and he is home again.

All day I did the little things,
The little things that do not show;
I brought the kindling for the fire
I set the candles in a row,
I filled a bowl with marigolds,
The shallow bowl you love the best --
And made the house a pleasant place
Where weariness might take its rest.
* * * * *
You came into that quiet room
That glowed enchanted with the bloom
Of yellow flame. I saw your face.
Illumined by the firelit space,
Slowly grow still and comforted --
"It's good to be at home," you said.
From a poem by Blanche Kuder
