If you read my Valentine's diatribe you'll have noted that the cynics were very much outnumbered by the believers. I think that says something nice about the world. (or at least about my READERS!!)
Today I received some cozy red "reading socks" (I can just envision being curled up by my woodstove in PEI with my red socks on:) AND a beautifully written original poem by Michael along with a special picture of the two of us.
Romantic stuff huh? Sheesh he can be a mushy guy!
In return I had the photo of our foot impressions on the Northport Beach in PEI enlarged and framed in a beautiful frame made of juniper wood. That is especially poignant because the lovingly restored floors in our old farmhouse are juniper. For his sweet tooth a box of his favourite Dad's oatmeal cookies.
And a really mushy card.
For my darling daughter - an album of photos of the two of us from her 20th birthday party:
For her sweet tooth - a bag of caramel-filled chocolate hearts. And because I am forever practical and she's been complaining of not having enough hangers I gave her a $5 pack of 30 plastic hangers.
So today was a bit of a spending day though spending on my loved ones was such a treat. The photos came to about $10, the frame and photo albums, cookies, candy, hangers and cards about another $45. I don't mind - I still have enough misc $$ to see me through until the end of the month plus money for gas and groceries.
I feel very blessed and forever grateful to have love in my life - the love of my amazing daughter and the love of a very good man.
Here's my two week summary for No Spend February:
Right on Track!
