Happy Valentine's Day and Other Stuff

Our church is having a Valentine's dinner, not sure exactly what's happening. Last I heard the men were cooking--but my husband knows nothing about it. Paid my money so I'm going.

In year's past, they've had other Valentine's dinners--great food and lots of silly games. One of the women who did a lot of it is now in the hospital, so makes me wonder if it's really going to happen.

We live in Central California, in the foothills, east and north of Bakersfield. During the winter, the mountains surrounding our 1000 foot location are covered with snow. Once in awhile the snow comes down right here. That's what's been happening. For those of you who trudge through snow all winter probably can't appreciate how delighted we are when it does snow here.

One year it snowed a lot. The school closed. Of course all the kids were everywhere playing in the snow--including the school yard. At the time we had two grandkids living with us, one in grammar school and the other in middle school (same location). Older one, grandson, had all his friends here most of the day because their mothers were at work. They used our trash can lids to slide down the hills. They built a huge snowman by the road (it lasted for days after the rest of the snow was gone).

Of course none of these kids had proper snow clothes so they kept coming in and changing clothes and I'd have to wash and dry the wet ones.

They had a great time, me not so much. However, looking back, it was a fun memory.

Happy Valentine's Day!

And remember, No Sanctuary is now available as an e-book on Kindle, a trade paperback on Amazon and the publisher's site: http://www.oaktreebooks.com and click on Dark Oaks books or an autographed copy from me at: http://fictionforyou.com

You are so right. I am not rejoicing that it snowed again last night in Illinois!
