Thanks for the gentle reminder - I was thinking of having a tea party with some girl friends but for Presidents' Day. I have so many obligations between now and the 16th of February that I can't think of too much extra. My husband's Valentine Day will be a celebration after Feb. 16th. I have a huge luncheon to put on and I will be so happy when it is behind me.
Wow but you sound really busy Angie and happy to be so, but tell me please when is President's day ... is this when he is sworn in again - I thought that and all the balls and celebratory parties and first waltzes had already happened.
Still valentine's tea with a bunch of girlfriends does sound good and I hope you find time to pull it all off. You have given me an idea - think I will get together with some of mine (though it'll not be on 14th Feb.)
What do they say - life is about the journey and not the destination ... that way planning and doing and then attending and enjoying makes the effort of it all really worthwhile.
Good luck I say and enjoy.
Who has any other gift ideas to pass on for Valentine's day - have you picked out your 'valentine' yet! Remember too, it's supposed to be a mystery, got to keep 'them' guessing!

When I was a kid we celebrated two holidays - Abraham Lincoln on the 12th and George Washington on the 22nd - birthdays - now they are stuck together and we celebrate Presidents' Day on the third Monday of February.
Hello There Everybody!
I was paging back through the forum and came across these posts and thought they are as fresh for this year as they were for last year - only now there is just under month to go to this sweet day of love and friendship and care.
And that means there is a lot of time for planning and choosing and plotting! It seems that the celebrations in life just don't stop ... yay I say.
I still have not been able to sort out my site and forum as far as coding is concerned - so if you are a computer wizard and can make some suggestions for me (given that it is in my hands) PLEASE help!
In the meantime I hope to hear from you, Cheers now Lestie, Container Gardening

Well here we see the different avatars ... from a yellow tulip to some Mexican hand-painted pottery! Both nice!
A friend of mine declared a new day for Valentines Day, yesterday the 5th February in fact - as he is going abroad and will not be here for Feb 14th weekend. So...lucky me got a not-mysterious Valentines gift which I thought was just a great idea!
We all know or dream of or think about giving or getting at least a dozen long-stemmed roses on this traditional day, but these have a passing life being cut flowers. So, David (what a great friend!) gave me a climbing rose called Margie. He says it is 'a rambling rose from he who is a rambler.' It is a deep red colour, is an open flower with a creamy white heart.
Oh I did feel spoilt yesterday.
Maybe this is a good idea for you to use somehow - a rose bush to remind you of your dear friendships all year around and longer lasting than those cut flowers.
Cheers now with this Spanish proverb in mind ...
More things grow in the garden than the gardener sows.’
And a H A P P Y V A L E N T I N E 'S D A Y to one and all in friendship and love!
