Yesterday was another good day off. The plan was to not go anywhere and hopefully get some cleaning done.
I did manage to do some cleaning, got the laundry done and then thought it was time to change out the decorations on my dining room table. It was too wintry and I'm ready to move on even if Mother Nature isn't. Since Valentines Day is fast approaching I dug in my seasonal decor cabinet to see what I could find.
I started with a lace tablecloth and the solid red and red and white striped place mats. I pulled out the vase and some fake roses, a little candle holder with a red berry ring, a stuffed heart that has some machine embroidery on it and a crystal block that Wade had given me for Valentines day in 2006. I also added the little red plastic basket to hold my salt and pepper shakers.
On the left you see my kindle in a small easel. I like to read while I eat my dinner but don't want to have to hold the kindle. The easel is the perfect solution.
I put the crystal block up against one of the place mats so you can read what it says. I remember he thinking it was a silly gift when he gave it to me but I thought it was far from silly. This year I would even go as far as saying it's priceless.
On a side note, I did end up going to my daughters house for a bit and on the way home I noticed the temp was 36 degrees. It's funny how after having such cold temperatures 36 felt almost warm.
