Well, it’s here again. . Of course, as we all know, Valentine’s Day is just a good marketing scheme for the greeting card companies and florists. I usually do not receive anything for Valentine’s Day. I feel that there are more important things to spend our money on. However, I see flowers on desks of different offices I go into and find myself wishing that I, too would get flowers, just once…..OR AT LEAST A CARD FOR CRYING OUT LOUD (hint, hint).
It is so cold and windy out that we decided to stay in tonight. We were thinking about eating out, but were actually feeling rather lazy. So we stayed in and cooked up a DiGiorno’s pizza for supper and are going to watch television and watch the ball drop and call it a year. This has been a rough year for many people; I hope next year is a better one for us all! With the presidential campaigns going on, it will certainly be very interesting to say the least!
Today was a busy, but happy day. Lots of friends and relatives, lots of good food. Not many presents because everyone is feeling the budget crunch. But what is really important at this time of year is getting together with people you care about, right? Christmas is about being with loved ones, and that is what happened, so it is all good. Hope you had a good Christmas too!
Just recently a friend of mine decided that he wanted to do a book exchange program with me. Seems that I have a lot of books he would like to read and he has a lot of books that he thinks I should read. So he started bringing the books that he’s read that belong to him, and then he picks one of my books that he wants to read. So far it has worked out pretty well; he’s returned every book he borrowed from me, and I’ve returned every book that I’ve borrowed from him. So far the books he has recommended have been interesting to read.
Tonight we’re going to my favorite all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet restaurant. I love Chinese food – I could eat it every day! My favorites are sweet and sour chicken, fried rice, and lo mein noodles. And the meat filled dumplings – some places call them pot stickers. But I really enjoy the buffets because I can have a little bit of everything – I like all sorts of chicken and shrimp dishes! I am not a big fan of sushi, though, but the sushi bar looks beautiful – the sushi chef makes it all look like candy! What a rude awakening to my mouth to put something in that looks like candy but tastes like fish and seaweed!
