Happy Valentine's Day

I was convinced that I wouldn't be able to post this Valentine's Day. But here I am and so delighted to be writing this post. For some reason, I can't seem to post from my own computer. I guess I'll have to call my ISP in NY to find out what the problem is. In the meantime, no pictures. Thanks to the Clark County Public Library, I am able to post.

It's been awhile, so I'll try to catch up. Since I can't post pictures (yet), I'll save Meghan's bridal shower for a later date. Let me just say that it was a lovely day and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Meg and Casey are just the dearest young couple. Can you believe she had her thank you notes in the mail by Monday? She has a few days off before she returns to Hope College and took advantage of that time to write thank you's.

On Sunday, we had a delightful lunch at our friends Ric and Sandi's home. She wanted to celebrate February birthdays, plus a farewell to Jim and I as we were leaving for our Nevada sojourn. The food was wonderful and the company awesome. Check out my picture link to see Sienna entertaining us. What a kiddo!!
Oh, I forgot to mention Lara's "vivacious" dessert. Yum! Yum!

Monday found Jim and I working furiously to get ready to leave on Tuesday. We did manage to go out to church for the Mexican dinner on Monday night. It was good food and good fellowship.

Our dear friend Linda picked us up early on Tuesday morning. After a substantial breakfast at Perkins, we were off to the airport. Everything about the flight was a-okay. We took off a few minutes early, landed a few minutes early with all our luggage intact. We found our rental car with no problems and were at the condo in no time.

We picked up Gretchen and Brian for dinner. They treated us to dinner at one of my favorite Las Vegas eateries, BUCA's. The food was terrific and it was soooo wonderful to be with our kids. Great evening.

Although the weather was great when we arrived and yesterday {70 degrees}, I think we brought a cold front with us and it is only 40 today. Last evening saw wild winds also. Gretchen almost asked us to go back to NY.

Today being Valentine's day, we are going to go out to a movie this afternoon and then cook together for dinner.

It is so good to be here. The sky is clear and blue and the sun is shining. What a wonderful break for us. We are so blessed and grateful for the wonderful time we are having in our retirement. We are also so very blessed to have each other. Last night, Jim came in and told me how happy he is that we like each other so much. Isn't that sweet?

So, with that I will close and say "Happy Valentine's Day" to all who may read this post. Love and Hugs.

aww what a nice husband you have! We're actually headed to Vegas{maybe}at the end of March for a Monster Truck rally. It's a new obsession of the boys and our friends already have their tickets!

Today was beautiful here, but did get a bit chilly when the clouds rolled in. I hope it warms up a bit for you in NV.

Happy Valentines Day!
