Sunday Reflections…

Let me start out by saying, Happy Valentines Day! ❤️ Normally, I would be planning a nice breakfast and dinner out for my sweetheart ❤️ But, instead we have a Winter Storm Warning ⛔️ and the snows already started. So, I got up early and went to the store for us and my Mom & Dad & Mother in law… Usually Kroger is a ghost town on Sunday Morning, but not today…

It doesn’t look like much, BUT it just started! This is following a previous ice storm… So it’s fixing to get bad around here!

The old joke is to always run to the store at the 1st mention of snow to get bread and milk 🥛… Why? Maybe bread 🥖 pudding? Or French toast? A PB&J sandwich 🥪 always needs bread and a glass of milk. And, DON’T forget the TP 🧻 😃

No matter the weather, it’s still Valentines Day! ❤️ And I’m a blessed man to have a Valentine of my own! So dinners still on, it will be great too! Because I will be the chef 👩‍🍳

Here’s to all the Lovers out there! ❤️ Happy Valentines Day! ❤️
