Three Beautiful Things

So, it's not Tuesday, but what the heck...

Happy Valentine's Day! No, this isn't blooming yet, but the buds are forming - and the anticipation of the sweet musky fragrance is there. It will be sunny when I leave for work in the a.m. (Yikes! I need to go find my V-day card for The Shepherd before I go off to bed)

  • I actually experienced these TBT on Tuesday, tho. I went to lunch at the Black Angus. They have a great coupon deal - you can get a really good steak sandwich for about the same as a burger deal at Mickey D's - who wouldn't want to do that. I really like one of the lunch waitresses there - she has been there for at least 6 or 7 years if not longer. She is always so cheerful. The coupon deal brings in a lot of Seniors - and she definately has her regulars. She treats everyone like they are her "BEST" customers. We all leave her great tips.
  • The sun was shining that morning when I went to work. It is supposed to be sunny ALL day tomorrow! What a welcome site!
  • Reading Becca's story about the surprises she found in the barn when she went out to feed on Sunday a.m. and laughing while reading her "Famous Last Words" list.

One more beautiful thing - Congrats to "Uno the beagle" who won Best of Show at the Westminster Dog Show! "Snoopy" finally gets his day!

T-I followed the link to Becca's story and it was so sweet. I love that she used the doggie sweaters for the lambs. I will never look at a doggie sweater the same ever again.

Our daffs have started showing color and we as usual we got a dusting of snow on the grass while we slept. Every year I wait to see how many of my daff will either freeze to death or be beaten up by a killer rain storm.

I can only dream of buds on flowers and trees. (sigh) We won't see any here until mid-May. :(

And a very Happy Valentine's Day to you and The Shepherd, from the Shepherdess. LOL!

Wool Ewe Bee My Valentine?

I Remember, I Remember

I remember, I remember

The house where I was born,

the little window where the sun

Came peeping in at morn:

He never came a wink too soon,

Nor brought too long a day,

But now, I often wish the night

Had borne my breath away!


I remember, I remember

The roses, red and white,

The vi'lets, and the lily-cups,

Those flowers made of light!

The lilacs where the robin built,

And where my brother set

The laburnum on his birthday,

The tree is living yet!


I remember, I remember

Where I was used to swing

and thought the air must rush as fresh

To swallows on the wing;

My spirit flew in feathers then,

That is so heavy now,

And summer pools could hardly cool

The fever on my brow!


I remember, I remember

The fir trees dark and high;

I used to think their slender tops

Were close against the sky;

It was a childish ignorance,

But now 'tis little joy

To know I'm farther off from heav'n

Than when I was a boy!
