Valentines Day Card Anyone?

Valentines day falls on the same day as trash day on my quirky little neighborhood on my quirky little island.  Coincidence?  Perhaps.

It also means that I woke up to a giant red heart of chocolate goodness in the refrigerator.

Awww... who doesn't love chocolate surprises at 5:30 in the morning?  If you don't you're bad and you should feel bad.

It was a wonderful surprise.

All of that was what I was thinking when I was doing my normal trash day activity.  Pulling weeds.  I'll admit that I'm crap at gardening.  A few big plants and the rest needs to survive a quick "weedeatering" of the yard.  Edge and done.  It's not always that brief, but you can hope.

Outside wondering why I was doing it, feeling every hit my knees ever took in Football, Inline Skating, a Car Accident or two, and falling off my bike at age 12 or so all ran through the empty walls of my mind.

But I do have plans for the day.  It involves heat, chocolate, a little alcohol, and a bit of TLC in the kitchen.  After all, it is impossible to surprise someone with a home made surprise at the right time if you make it the day before. 

Much better than the silhouette that I was making, bent at the waist, looking like those yard signs of "mom's butt" you would see in Pennsylvania because someone with a woodshop, router, and blue and white paint thought it was cute.

On the other hand, it did look amusing when I saw it on Ramblingmoose TV.  That's our security camera set up.  Walking back and forth, pulling handfuls of weeds, a little coleus, and looking foolish on video at 16x normal speed is my goal.

Happy Valentines Day.  If you're not a gourmet cook, you're a bit late and I won't help until I make the stuff.  Recipes come later.
