St. Valentine's Day

     Had a (socially distanced) visit from D and GD today, bearing gifts for St. Valentine's Day. We sat on the back patio in the sun for half an hour and chatted until we got a bit chilled.  Have already got into the Truffles, the wine will be next and the foil container holds a chocolate brownie which will be my dessert tonight. All good stuff - they really know my faves!


   I just realized that Lent is coming up and I will have to finish the wine (and all the other liquor in the house) as well as the chocolate before then as I usually give up both booze and chocolate for Lent. I may be a bit late in starting this year! I do this just to make sure I am not becoming addicted to either of them so no point in keeping temptation around. Wish me luck!

  2. How lovely. Not giving anything up til after the pandemic is over. Just a pagan.

    1. Remains to be seen how long I last. Usually I can do it by distracting myself with other things. Not this year!

    1. It was lovely to see them and have someone to talk to. I am getting used to talking to myself.

  5. What thoughtful gifts for you. My ladies bible group will be deciding Wednesday morning what we are doing for Lent as a group. So far our thoughts are running to adding a daily routine rather than giving up - our leader felt given the situation we didn't need more negatives. Good luck with the wine & chocolate. That sunshine has been delightful.

  6. Made a dent in the chocolate - should have it all eaten by the end of the week. Then no more until Easter!
