Worming my way into your heart....

Had a lovely time picking out Valentine's Day candy for Pebbles and Guy. I like finding nice chocolates from interesting places to share with them, so I toddled off to my stores to find them some stuff. This year it's Belgium, France, Africa and somewhere in South America. Should be interesting. Came home and put together a gift basket. Nothing fancy, but it was a lot of fun to do something girly and creative for a change. Everybody needs to get their Martha on sometime!

Had an interesting discussion with Bick about Valentine's Day. He commented while I was building the gift basket that for someone who says I don't care about VD, I do put a lot of effort into it. I said that this was just a chance to indulge Pebbles (and Guy) a little bit. Plus, I said that I've always had a little trouble with "it's the thought that counts" at Valentine's Day and that I'd just let it go. I'd rather receive nothing than the frilly heart of bad chocolates with a stuffed teddy bear tied with a balloon - which anyone who really took the time to know me would know that there would be nothing about that that would appeal to me. Guess I'm kind of a snob about that. Bick asked if I thought that he was a build-a-bear kinda guy and I said of course not. He said he was much more romantic than that. And he is.

Bick and I plan on exchanging worms for Valentine's Day. Nothing says love like a pound of red worms.

Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get Wiggly with it.

  1. I've been feeling my Martha coming on lately. My son was born on VD 25 yrs ago this year. We mostly celebrate it as a birth-day and certainly no frilly doilies for him. Foreign chocolate shows diversity, style and taste! I like it.

    Yum, worms? For fishing I presume? Have a good weekend.


We'll try this for a while.
