I love holiday weekends.
Dale gets to spend more time with us at Our Little House and time slows to a crawl.
This was an especially nice weekend weather wise. The hot and humid temperatures broke on Sunday. Up until that time, we were still having 100 degree days.
On Monday, we decided on ribs and potato salad for dinner, which means I got to finish my part of the meal early. Potato salad is much better when it sits in the fridge all day.
Dale and I have been together a while, this will be our 30th Valentine’s Day together. I know, some of you believe that Valentine’s Day is just another manufactured holiday promoted by the greeting card, flower and candy companies to sell their products. Others, such as some of my links on Facebook say, “Bah-hum-bug. We don’t need a day to be told to celebrate our love.”
Growing up in the home city of Hallmark Cards, we might have been targeted for the advertising and hype earlier than others. Of course, we know not just one day of showing love and appreciation does a relationship make, but what's the harm of celebrating a day of love? It's better than celebrating a day of hate.
