I was all set to move out after my weekly guitar lesson. I was dressed and ready to restock my shelves for dinner guests coming tomorrow night. Yes. it’s a revolving door now- feasts for friends who were here to spend my first Valentine’s Day filling solo, with me.
I had an early morning visit with Jonathan, catching up with him on his digital work and sharing stories about you of course. You are never too far from my thoughts or lips.
In fact, let me take a moment to share my VD gifts with you…
- The Photo on the top left was in Sharon’s last show and I’ve had my eye on it for weeks Of course she saw all the signs and gave me the time and space to decide if I could live without it. When I saw it hanging on a wall in her house last week, I thought… no, it belongs somewhere in my house. As we munched on lunch together I grabbed my checkbook out of my bag and started writing. Wrapped up in a ShopRite bag, as soon as I got home, even before I took off my winter coat, I saw the perfect spot for it. After moving the small Taos ceramic to join something from Julia on the other side of the window in the kitchen this new photo had just the right spot just to the right of my sink. Know where I mean? You must have had your hands in this, right? Those shoes remind me of your comfortable, but worn out shoes that you refused to replace.
So great to have artist friends!!!!
2. Flowers for VD Day. Flowers every day thanks to your need to shower those you loved with bouquets often. I’m continuing your ritual but sorry, no roses this year, but don’t you love my lovely yellow buds??? I’m smiling right now as I look to my right.
3. Lastly, one last lavish splurge- VD dessert for me and those who love great cheesecake, the Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake So far, the cake is the thing- Leora and Ron loved their slices- devouring them with a flourish! Jonathan and Lisa, intent on eating healthy, couldn’t refuse, and Tara and Scott, also grinned as they slowly consumed their slices and there’s so much more for my dinner party tomorrow night and more events to come. the bottom shelf of my freezer if filled with tin foil packages. 🙂
A Good day yesterday and of course,
I Missed you deep down in the depths of my being. Just the way I miss you every day.
