Another one from Carla Lynne
Next week is Valentine's Day, so let's talk about Chocolates, Roses, and Cards:
Chocolates ~ Got a favorite brand or flavor? C'mon, admit it, you like to get a box of chocolates every once in awhile...Although chocolate covered cherries are my favorite of all favorites, I love a box of Whitman's, but haven't gotten one for years. Norm is "allergic" to buying boxes of candies .. sometimes he will get a cheap box after the day if they are on sale and he's in the area. Sometimes he will buy me some mints instead. They are cheaper. The last box of valentine's candy I got, I bought for HIM.
Roses ~ What's your favorite colored rose? Have you ever seen a specialty variety like a Black Rose or Elizabeth Taylor Rose? Never seen those - my favorite rose color is pink. Haven't gotten roses for years, either - Norm isn't much for buying flowers of any kind.
Cards ~ Do you give cards? Do you like to receive them? How about Valentine's- do you make them with the kids? It's been years since I've made cards with kids. But I make a card for Norm on the computer and he will pick up a card for me - most other cards are now e-cards.
It sounds like Norm isn't very romantic, which is not the case - he just doesn't see the need to spend MONEY and will spend TIME with me for special days.
But I am EXPECTING a special valentine this year - Carla Lynne, do you HEAR ME???
Have a beautiful day!
