No Hearts No Flowers


The "new normal" Valentine's Day looks like this around here. I got a grocery pickup and managed to get two boxes of chocolate for The Mister. He made a mad dash into Walmart and came out with...a variety bag of chips for me. He said the candy aisle was too I actually like chips and rarely have any since the Pandemic so there will be no complaints from me. 

Yesterday, Superbowl Sunday, was more interesting. After a week of warm temps we got a very pretty dusting of snow, I won $100 in a football pool.....

...and I made crockpot lasagna which is ridiculously easy and good. I'll never make it any other way even if I do have a working oven. Today we are getting another visit from the technician. Let's hope that the third time is the charm. 

And....Daughter's little baby sprinkle for her friend looks like it was a big success yesterday. I did the invitations and Daughter put it all together but we didn't actually attend. Sadly, her family is made up of a lot of anti-vaxers and anti maskers so we sat this one out. The mom to be who is vaxed is just getting over Covid herself so she more than understood. What a weird world. Nothing makes much sense anymore. 


  1. Fun Valentine's gifts! lol The weather is totally winter, isn't it?! The shower arrangement is sweet!

  2. Chocolate and chips sound pretty good to me!

  3. Happy Valentines Day! I got a couple boxes of chocolate, but apparently my card is somewhere else in the house but he can't remember where. It's probably with last year's Christmas, Birthday, and Anniversary cards... (can you see a theme here - lol)

  4. Wow that was some shower!! It was nice of someone to share the photo with you. I got a card and he actually picked it out himself:)

  5. I tried to purchase a Whitman’s sampler at Christmas — none to be found anywhere. Christmas wasn’t the same without Whitman’s. Whoa, that sprinkle looks more like a downpour! Hope your day is filled with happiness and that your oven is finally repaired.

  6. Enjoy those chips! Hope you DH will share his chocolates. Happy Valentine's Day!

  7. I laughed out loud at the chips, but I loved it. Very inovative. :-) The lasagna looks delicious. Would you share the recipe?
    And that sprinkle looks wonderful. I'm sorry you were unable to attend.
    Our new granddaughters shower was yesterday too. I was so sad to miss it and wish I could be there to see them in this month before her birth. I can't wait to cuddle her soon. We're hoping to fly there in April.
    Happy Valentine's Day!
    Blessings and hugs,
