Wednesday Medley

1.  I think St. Valentine's Day is for everyone, whether you have a romantic love interest or not.  I received a Valentine card from my sister (thank you Patti!) - case in point.  It is all about LOVE, not just romantic love.  What are your traditions for celebrating Valentine's Day?

Before hub passed away (November 2018), we would go out and eat...nothing fancy.  I always told him no gifts because every day was Valentine's Day with us.
2.  When you were in elementary school, did you decorate a shoe box and deliver those little valentines to all your classmates?   Perhaps in Sunday School?3.  Do you enjoy playing Cupid?  Have you ever introduced a couple who really clicked?

I made the little shoe boxes in elementary school and it was so fun putting the valentines in them.  When I first began teaching, (1982) we began decorating paper bags and having the students put valentines in them.  Now, I don't think teachers do this...too much curriculum to teach.
I can recall teaching at the high school level and the many, many flowers that were delivered to school for that special someone.
I haven't introduced a couple that clicked, but on the flip side of that, I have introduced a couple that didn't click at all.
4.  Which traditional Valentine's Day gift would you rather receive:  Chocolate, flowers, or a card with a personal message?

I would chose a card with a personal message.
5.  What is the best movie to watch on Valentine's Day?

"The Notebook

6.  Tell us something random about your week!

This rainy weather is awful!!  I am enjoying the warm temps which I think is unusual for this time of year, but not the rain.  My ground is a muddy mess.

Might be needing this as my form of transportation.
Have a great rest of the week and Enjoy Life!


  1. So sorry for your loss which I am sure is still a most tender spot for youat times like these... It sounds like you have sweet memories that will last forever... We have soggy ground here and are looking forward to the healing winds of spring!!!

  2. All of my valentines come from sisters! They are the best!

  3. I love the movie "The Notebook"!! Good choice! Our weather here in Florida is crazy too but we rarely have mud because the water soaks into the sandy soil pretty fast. Thanks for joining the Medley today!! I enjoyed reading your answers!

  4. So sorry about the loss of your husband.
    It is a rainy muddy mess here at my house in Missouri also. Loved your answers! Happy Valentine's Day!

  5. I'm sorry about your husband. I'm glad you have good memories of him to look back on since the first holidays after losing a loved one always seem so darn difficult. Oh, the rain! We have had so much melting snow and rain on top of it here, too. Our backyard looks like a swamp. I am so over the wet and mud.
