I usually cook steak and potato on Valentines day because my sweetie likes it, I also buy him beer and chocolate. I hate eating out on that day because every place is packed, and I hate crowds. I also tell Paul to buy me flowers a week or two ahead of time so there not so expensive too.

What do you all do?

We do almost nothing. I usually buy some strawberries and dip them in chocolate, as the kids and I like them, but my husband isn't really all that fond of strawberries. And I don't want him to spend money we don't have on flowers that don't last.

Maybe Valentine's isn't that big a deal for me because I never saw it being celebrated when I was growing up, except for the obligatory school exchange. My father died when I was 7, so my mother was widowed throughout my growing up years. I had zero expectations of how a couple was supposed to celebrate anything or do anything. Valentine's has always seemed like a Hallmark holiday for me, but I am not trying to rain on anyone else's parade. If people enjoy it, then go for it, why not?

Congrats Andy, I bet it is a much slower pace there.

I really want to move to Las Cruces New Mexico, but I'll have to wait till I retire. :(

Were having a great winter, unlike last year when ice snow and frozen fog were non-stop.

It was 66° on Wednesday.

You have a good weekend too...stay sane.

No Valentine's plans yet. Our winter weather has been brutal, schools closed for over a week. We are having repeated plumbing issues in our old house. Pipes keep breaking no matter how much we try to coddle them. :(

As long as you and yours are okay then you can weather anything, Murf.

No pun intended but yeah...intended.

Hi everyone,

Our weather is finally starting to get warmer off and on, not so much gloom and doom. 8)

I got flowers and a purse for Valentines Day, which was a nice surprise! :D

I hope you are all doing well, I thought I would just check in and see how everyone was doing.

Sorry to hear about your pipes Murf, that sucks! Hopefully things will get better soon, my thoughts and prays go out to you and your family!

:D hello hello!! Any 2019 plans for heart day?

I made a few cards I'm shipping out, and a card for my wife at home. Got a special treat lined up for the dog as well! Unsure what else I might do for the date. Quite possibly just make a nice dinner for everyone.

What about you all?

It sounds like you are planning a thoughtful holiday for your loved ones! Honestly, I haven't thought ahead that far yet. I may cook a special meal.
