Happy Valentine's Day !

I got the best surprise this afternoon - flowers!  It's not every day that my husband sends me flowers so when he does it makes it that much more special.  It was not something I was expecting.  I'm still smiling.
John and I had already had lunch together after an appointment.  He had suggested Cheese Cake Factory which we don't do very often either.  Today has been a sweet treat and I'm glad he's my sweetheart.

The Night the Lights Went Out in Florida!

One night just before dinner - the lights went out in Florida.  It was an odd occurrence since there wasn't a storm brewing.  Turns out it wasn't a wide spread blackout - just 45 houses in our area. John had a business dinner so no sweat for him!  What about the rest of us you ask.  Well we decided to rough it (no McDonalds's necessary).
Before it got too dark we dug out the flashlights and lantern, pillows and blankets and parked it on the front room floor, camping style.  They really wanted to break out the tent and set it up (uh, no!  wouldn't fit for starters and it was a school night - thankgoodness for me!)

We ended up fixing peanut butter sandwiches and enjoyed our little camping excursion right in our own front room.
