He's a keeper!!

What a sweet guy I married:) His Valentine surprise turned out to be a relaxing bubble bath after work. I was supposed to work a 13 hour shift yesterday and he thought that would be a nice way to end the long and cold day. I ended up having to switch shifts and only worked a short shift yesterday (I'm working the 13 tomorrow) but it was still nice and I really appreciated the thought. Usually he's a flowers and candy type of guy which is nice but we're both trying to lose weight so he tried something different this year. I came home to hear the new Norah Jones CD playing in the upstairs bathroom, new scented candles lit, a new bubble bath bubbling in the tub, and new scented lotion on the vanity. He even laid out my fuzzy robe and the fluffy towels.

So to return the gesture today, I'm going to head out into the cold and shovel the driveway and sidewalk. Between the two of us we got it about half done yesterday, enough to get in and out at least but he was going to finish it after work today so I'll do it for him. Looks like we did get a bit more snow last night too so that'll need to be cleared. The weatherman's calling for lake effect later today so who knows how much more that'll bring.

I'm going to try to spend the afternoon on QS Dragonfly which is getting interesting because I'm getting into the darker shades of blue and now you can really start to see the beautiful shading in this piece.

Wow! What a nice and thoughtful thing for your DH to do! To think of all the little extras, like the candles and laying out your fuzzy robe, shows that he was really thinking of you.
