Happy Valentine's Day

Tonight when I sat down to write, I knew I didn't have a picture. I've been to bee school all day. After taking a quiz on hive components and tools, it was past 4 p.m. I didn't want to be late for Valentine's dinner.

The sessions are almost two hours south of here, and I didn't have time to dally. Jilda was preparing baked salmon, brown rice, and asparagus. It was incredible.

After dinner, I headed into the office to write in my blog. That's when the "no picture" thang became an issue.

I opened Google Photos and typed Valentine's Day. The picture below was the first one to appear.

Jilda painted this card for me over 20 years ago. I still have it framed on my desk, but the years faded it to a whisper of a photo.

Thankfully, I had the good sense to scan it back when it was freshly watercolored.

It made me smile.

I hope Valentine's Day has been good for you.


  1. So sweet! Happy Valentine's Day to you two love birds!
