Valentine’s Day Kick-Back

After the month we’ve had, when Valentine’s Day came around all we wanted to do was completely veg out and not see a single human being except each other all day!

We also didn’t want to mess with our bodies in term of lots of sugar and wheat and cream…  Health over treats!

Mitchell brought a bouquet from the coop for me

We strung lights (we are nuts for twinkle and kitschy lights!

We turned the ringers
off on the phones,
slept late,
stayed in our pajamas,
binged on old movies,
I painted more cards and finished this spread,
(did I say napped),
and even had time to read!

Our new favorite lunch is garbanzo beans (chickpeas) roasted in a little olive oil (or bit of juice leftover from a curry chicken) with curry, cumin, salt and pepper.

I cleaned the Oregon crabs…
In season they are affordable!
They are a lot of work
but so sweet!
The cats fought us for bites…
we spoiled them as a little goes a long way toward
greatest human points!

We ate dinner on trays watching movies… still in pjs!

Dessert were AlterEco’s
Velvet Truffles and
Black Truffles… the best!
Especially curled up binging on Inspector Lewis!

BEST Valentine’s Day!

    Even your candy drawing is making me hungry 🙂


  3. It sounds like you had a wonderful day. I love the texture of the crab that you’ve achieved with all the pigment blooms.
