The well problems are mostly over. Yes, we have water now (and it tastes wonderful)
but the pressure wasn't good today. When Brian got home from work, he figured out that
there is still sediment being filtered and with all that sediment clogging up the house filter
(which is a must when you have a well), it was slowing the water pressure down. He
changed the filter and the pressure is good once again. Hopefully, that's the end of
the sediment. We'll see. Brian might be changing the filter several times. And it's a real
pain because you have to turn the water to the house off. And the filters are also expensive.
On to a better subject: Love. And Valentine's Day. The colors of this holiday ~ red and
pink ~ are cheery in the middle of the bleak winter. There's heart-shaped everything.
You have an excuse to eat a few chocolates. Remember in grade school when you had
to give a little Valentine to everyone in your classroom? And you decorated a shoebox with
a hole in the lid so that you could collect Valentines from your classmates? I don't think kids
do that anymore.
I like putting small touches of Valentine's Day decor around the house and
decorating the china cabinet in the kitchen.
The soft hearts on the top shelf were made by Carol at Art and Sand. The heart plate in
the middle was a Target find from last year and the "love" glasses flanking the plate were
from the Dollar Tree years ago.
This bowl was found at Target last year, too. I love the little bird perched on
the edge! (Psst...have a chocolate.)
On top of the dresser in my office...that's a photo of my precious boys from a long time
ago in the notepad holder. A puffy fabric heart - another from Carol - says "sweet".
I found these LED heart lights at Target today in the dollar bins (they were $3) and
hung them across Phil's memory shelf. They look so pretty lit up at night. I think I'll
keep them there year-round.
A little vignette on top of the secretary desk in the master bedroom...
"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love."
