Letters to Tuvia#149: ShopRite VD Meltdown(2-13-16)

Morning T,

It’s getting closer to Valentine’s Day and even though it’s painfully cold outside, the sun is shining and maybe I am too.  Just cleaned up the kitchen and I’m eagerly anticipating a sweet aroma wafting through the apartment as the slow cooker kicks in.

I know, you hate it when the house smells of food.  Not me 🙂

So I was okay yesterday. Dana was here to restore the place to order and we went crazy sharing recipes.  We even called her daughter Dani for more specifics and what’s cooking in my crock pot comes directly from a recent family dinner so I can blame Dana if it isn’t good. Ha!

All good to start the day and then I headed to ShopRite before my ride to Hoboken for dinner with Ron and Leora.  So just when I wasn’t expecting any issue I was blindsided by the over-the-top decorations for VD Day.

I didn’t race out but I’m sure people that shopping nearby could see my flood of tears.  I did ‘t really care about them, but it was a tough challenge sticking with my task at hand.  I did miss a few things, but not many.I made it through with just enough time to head across the street to the Cheesecake Factory so that you could buy me my favorite cheesecake- the Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake-a large one, with slices cut up to parse out few at a time.

So 3 healthy-sized  slice traveled with me to Ron’s and Leora was in sweet heaven after a tough week in the corporate world.  But together, they both offered good conversation, great food and warmth.

Check out Leora’s new glasses- she looks great, right?

Don’t worry about tomorrow.  I’m covered, but there’s no romance without you.

Miss you,

Bonnie S.

  1. You aren’t alone. It is those little things that throw one off. I remember it was a long time before I could use my mother’s favorite cooking pot, which I loved and took. It was too hard. But, love the cooking and the cheesecake factory purchase, sounds so good. I wish there was one near me! Hugs for a lovely evening, Bonnie, and a Happy Valentine’s Day with Tara and Scott.

  2. Wow! A large cheesecake? You will be nibbling on that for a while 🙂 Fortunately you have memories of romance and sweetness from twenty years of togetherness to fall back on. I know it’s not the same,but it was good.
