The way to my heart ...

Ahhhh,... hearts, roses, chocolate and lots of I Love You's.
But not in this house!
My husband knows that the way to my heart is with a Chapters gift certificate. Roses die, chocolate lasts minutes, and he's already generous with the I Love You's, so the only thing left to knock my socks off is books, beautiful books, wonderful books!
And what did Mr. Wylie get? (yes, I stole the hubby-nick from Kate Pearce) Mr. Wylie gets the opportunity to possibly become $1000 a month richer...
He got a stack of scratch and wins from me and the kiddies. And chocolate. White chocolate, to match the heaps of snow he's been shovelling.

The expected guests from Bermuda may or may not be coming today. With the storm here in Southern Ontario and the gale force winds on the island, the flight has already been delayed from a 1pm departure to a 7:30pm departure, which doesn't get them here until 10:00 tonight. *yawn*
Sadly, the kids won't be awake to greet their cousin, but gladly, I don't have to cook dinner :)
Maybe I can even squeeze a trip to ye olde bookstore in before they arrive!

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day, whether you're single, dating, married, or cuddling with you cat and a tub of Ben and Jerry's.

I could go for a Chapters Gift Certificate or the Scratch and Wins.

This year I got something totally unexpected, something which hasn't been given to me since he proposed.

A ring,(not real), but still gorgeous and very much appreciated. Though the Chapters would have been very much appreciated too!!!!

Have a great day. See, I'm not a total miser when it comes to this day. ;)

Ah, yes -- books! Far better than chocolate or flowers. Sounds like y'all had a great day! :)

Books sound good! :)

Happy VDay to you! Lots of hugs, chocolates, and scratch tickets! ;)

Amy - A ring?? EEEEEEEEEEEE!!! How wonderful!!

Yes, it's pretty, it's a pink (fake stone) shaped like a heart. Have to get it sized, he forgot I had babies and my fingers are no longer the same size as when he proposed.

I like it. What books did you buy? See, I'm just obsessed with Chapters and Book stores in general.

Happy Valentine's Day, Wylie! (sorry I'm late)

And I am so glad you got your kitty back--he looks like a big sweetie.
