Happy valentines day

Hi Friends.
I have missed you all!!!

What a ugly few weeks this has been.
Today is the first day in  10 days that I haven't woken up in pain.
Sure, I still have the aches.. but the stabbing pain is gone.
I can walk!!!
Thank you god!

It was horrible. 
Nothing drives me more insane then sitting still.
I'm a busy girl..  always on the go
and always doing something around the house.

I did some Internet shopping last week.
I did some grocery shopping online
I bought Papa spoonful's Valentines gift
and I created a blog book.. which I am waiting for
( I am so excited to see it in person)
Other then that.. I read a lot of magazines and drank many many cosmopolitans!

My new camera was delivered last week..
and it is amazing!! 
I tried to register for a  class ~  to learn how to use it ~at the local CC
but they are all full this semester.

Since Papa Spoonful had to work today
We celebrated Valentines this weekend.

Friday night we had dinner at our favorite place
and after a delicious crab cake, too many Cosmo's and a numb back
I was tooo excited and gave him his valentines gift.

This Milk Chocolate Monster!

And two tickets for the Dover 400 nascar race.

I wanted to spoil him a little ...
He takes great care of us.

I wasn't really expecting a big gift..
flowers would have been wonderful

~ but this..   IS AMAZING!!!!

The Rebel was awesome before..
but now look at it.

And now I really need to find lessons!

I had to play with it last night and here are lots of doggie photos.

Thank you all so much for the prayers and well wishes!!!!!!!
I really appreciate your kind  thoughts.
Hope that you all had a fantastic Valentines day.

Oh, I envy you. I remember the giddy feeling I had when my rebel arrived. Still need to take that class too. Too bad we don't live closer, we could take it together.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Glad to see you are feeling a little better. *hugs*

Sounds like you had a nice Valentine's, despite the pain. I would have loved the lens *OR* the race tickets. lol I've always wanted to go to that track. That one, Daytona, and Bristol are on my wish list. (I've been to Vegas and, well, the NH one is obvious because of how close by it is.) He'll have a great time, I'm sure!

Susan said...

Welcome back, glad you are feeling better. Love the new camera. I have a Canon, but not a fancy one. Some day when I grow up, I want a fancy one.
Blessings, Susan

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Sounds like you and your hubby had a great V-day. We did too! Awesome new camera. And as always, I LOVE LOVE your doggies.

Katharine said...

Country Dreaming said...

Glad to hear that you are doing better! So sorry that you had such a rough time.
I don't know if you have read any of Dreaming but wanted to let you know you were mentioned and thanked for your lovely cards.
Mr Ken and I got them deliverd to a drop off site and then we saw on the news that all the cards had been deliverd to the hospital.
The kids were having a great time!

Thanks again to both of you.

Love the doggies.


Julie said...

Pumpkin said...

The Canon is a great camera and you'll love it once you get the hang of it :o) I have the 50D version which is the lowest professional edition.

Peggy H. said...

Hope you are feeling well. A new camera should perk anyone up. What kind is it? I am looking for a new one, not just a little dinky digital that takes passable photos. LOL

Have a great day.
