Day 13 – Happy 33rd Anniversary! and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy 33rd anniversary to Bruce and I.  There is no traditional 33rd year wedding anniversary  gift, yet the modern 33 wedding  year anniversary gift is Amethyst.  I’ll have to remember to tell him that when we are away at the weekend!!!!  We normally get gifts when we are away at the weekend.

33rd anniversary

Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all!

Happy Valentine's Day

In England Valentine’s Day was really just for the one you loved as in “romantically”.  Husband, boyfriend or someone you secretly fancied.  When we moved to Canada I was quite surprised to see that Valentine’s Day is for everyone you love, not just in a romantic sense.  Interestingly I read that school teacher’s are the people receiving the most Valentine’s.  My granddaughter who is 7 will go to school today with a Valentine’s card for every other child in her class and for her teacher.  She will come home with a pile of Valentine’s herself.  In the greeting card section there are Valentine’s for my mother, my sister, my friend, the same array as at Christmas.  The cards they sell for the Valentine’s exchange at school are usually smaller and you buy a pack of them.

I made some valentine treat bags to give to some friends today.  Valentine’s Chex Mix.

At the store we have heart shaped lollipos to accompany all our deliveries!!

This morning I had another of those yummy Sally’s Cereals, I love the fact that they are 100% organic, whole grain oats blended with organic whole grains and seeds, like flax, barley and quinoa.  They even sound yummy.  Today I tried Pomegranate. (4 Points plus)

Cinnamon Plum

I really fancied eggs for lunch today.  It was a toss up between making an egg salad for sandwiches or boiling up some eggs to have with a salad.  I decided to go with the salad.  I noticed yesterday I had a lots of carbs.  Pancakes for breakfast, wrap for lunch, tortilla for dinner!!!!  So I am just having a nice salad, yogurt and fruit.

Dinner tonight is fish.  I love salmon, in the white fish department my fave is cod, pare that up with the flavours of lime, garlic and cilantro and yummy!!!!
