Valentine's Miscellany

After breaking a tooth, and having to make an emergency visit to Kevin to have it repaired (and offering him great sympathy at the passing of his beloved hunting dog), my darling, wonderful children, led by Patrick, sent me the most fabulous surprise of all:


And my menfolk enjoyed their traditional Valentine's Day dinner of Shrimp Scampi, followed by chocolate cake with whipped cream frosting:

Hope you all enjoyed such heart-warming expressions of affection yesterday - and today!  Happy Belated Valentine's Day to all of you.

Bravo to all - except the broken tooth. Condolences to your dentist too.

I have had the broken tooth thing, too. So inconvenient. Gorgeous flowers and cake.

What lovely flowers and the cake looks scrumptious.

My pups gave me earrings.

You spoil each other, and I think that's lovely.

It's easy to understand why your kids treat their mom so special.

Sorry about your tooth....tooth pain has to be one of the worst. I got a flowering primrose on Valentines Day.....at least he thought of me;)

I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from Wahooart.com, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-8LHS4U, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
