It was Valentine’s Day

Psalm 96:9 Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.

Waxwing. Taken October 2018

We got some snow today – not much, but the prediction is for 4-8 inches! I have watched the predictions all winter long, and they’ve not even come close to following through. We’ve had almost no snow at all. It was cold, though. It’s been cold all winter – this past week, even more so.

Mike adjusted to thermostat and by 1 pm the wall unit was reading system error. He tried several things to fix it, but he kept making it worse. Eventually, he got the heat to kick on for a 45 minute time frame, then it would stop again. I ended up having to text Robert and ask him to come home and fix it properly.

Then Mike took a nap – he didn’t get up until almost 10, and by 2 he was asleep in his chair, all curled up like a baby. I covered him with a blanket, and unfortunately, that woke him – he decided to go to the family room and watch tv – I was in the office figuring out the numbers I needed for the tax accountant. I still have to do the medical and dental expenses and mileage, but I think after that I can just type out the entire list of payments and deductions and be done. Maybe another couple of hours, then that can be put away. About 7 pm I called it a day, and gathered Mike’s evening meds for him to take, and then I took my shower and headed to my room. The last I checked on Mike, he was dozing on the sofa in front of the tv.

My bank card was hacked, and I had to call the fraud department of the bank – now I don’t have access to my card, it’s been cancelled, and I have to wait until Tuesday to get another one. Darn! I hate when these things happen on a long weekend! So Happy Valentine’s Day to me – that was my only gift today. Obviously, Mike isn’t in a position to remember to get a card, or flowers, or candy. I knew I wasn’t going to get anything, and so, to keep Mike from feeling bad for not getting me something, I chose not to get him anything and I just told him Happy Valentine’s Day. He looked at me with a frown, and said, “Oh, am I supposed to do something?” I said no, smiled at him, and let him get back to his reading. And that is that.
