It's a very foggy morning in my woods.
Supposed to clear up later so that the blue shows.
Heart day at my place was so so.
Nothing special at all.
Just a normal day in the woods.
I did get a bouquet of flowers the day before.
Mr. Boatman had gone to the Farmers' Market
and there was a nice variety of flowers involved.
Riley Andrew spent most of the day chewing
at it though so a few of them had to be taken out.
I was thinking about heart day.
Unless it's on a weekend, who has time for that.
To go out to dinner or do something really special.
I think it is really about small things.
The fact that I had bought a nice steak for him.
Salmon for myself, of course.
A nice fire for Meredith and Big Al to enjoy.
No, they aren't sweethearts at all.
Laughing about someone who sang on AI last night.
Way too funny, some of them are.
I think that's what heart day is.
The moments in between the big ones.
Course what do I know,
I would never say that I was lucky in love.
Just an ordinary gal.
So, while I drink my coffee
and Meredith tries to find a bird
in the foggy world we live in,
I think about hearts and how they beat.
Hope you all have a fun weekend.
We plan on it.

You are right, you find love in everyday things and shouldn't be all about one day. Xxx

I hope your weekend is filled with nothing but love and comfort! Hugs!!!

I feel the same way - everyday you should make sure those you love know you are loved, not wait until a day Hallmark tells you to...

Meredith Ann...NO diets for sireee. I love what Hillary said too. I agree complete;y and mom and I try to be that way consistently.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
