Valentine Sunshine And Fudge...

Best ever Valentine's Day.   Thought I would rub in the fact we have sunshine share our wonderful morning.  It is 67 degrees as I write this.  The temps will begin to drop this afternoon as the storm gets closer.

Today we were able to explore forgetting all those neck deep in snow while sending wonderful spring thoughts to those in the heart of this horrible storm.
Sunshine, rocks, trees and dogs were all part of our adventure as the soup and casserole cooked itself at home.
Visiting places I haven't seen in a long time on the back side of the farm.  
Guess what I found?
Amazing beautiful rocks
steep hills I refused to ride up
I walked while Hubby drove.
Blue skies promised us spring was close.

The exploring ended as we returned to the valley with a feather, a bone and a bucket of beautiful rocks.  I had not burned lunch which we enjoyed.  Marcy brought us homemade fudge for our valentine.

The wind is picking up as the front is heading our way.  Off to top off the water gardens and enjoy the beautiful weather before we get iced in.

Happy Valentine's Day!  Stay safe and happy.

Looking very tempting . . .
We are hunkered down around here.
Blizzard . . .
Forty-Fifty Mile hour winds . . .
Complete white outs . . .
Nine degrees, wind chills in the thirties . . . .
(I have a bit of a whine going on!)
Want to wish you a Happy Valentines Day!
XOXOXOXO

We have sunshine, too. It looked so bright and inviting that it fooled me into walking outside. Oh my frigid gods! I almost froze to death. So go ahead, rub it in... just rub it in long enough to warm up my bones, for New York City is freezing!

Happy Valentine's Day to you! ♥
