Valentine’s Day is next week, which I refuse to believe. I know it’s true, but February just started. How can it almost be half over? Well, MaxE and I have big, big plans for V-day.
Ummmm … we plan to laze around and do nothing. You’re jealous. I understand.
Honestly, last year I did not look forward to Valentine’s Day. I adopted my Beloved Emeril on a frigid February afternoon, and I could never remember the exact date, so we celebrated his birthday on February 14. Last year was my first Valentine’s Day without him in ten years.
It was hard.
I don’t expect it to be easy this year, but I know the most handsome cat in heaven is stuffing his face at the all-you-can-eat kibble buffet and chasing birdies. The frail, sickly cat is gone, and he is hearty, hale and full of sass again. And that is a good, good thing.
MaxE is pretty excited about V-Day because he’s hoping he will get a new laser mouse.
It’s a secret, so don’t tell him, but he will. 🙂
He will be less enthused about the Valentine’s Day scarf he will have to wear.
It’s not a secret, but Mama can’t wait to put it on him. 🙂
It’s also not a secret that I love these chocolate truffles. They are perfect for Valentine’s day or any special occasion where you want to WOW someone. They are easy to make, but you do have to allow a few hours because they need time to chill. The hardest part is waiting for them to set-up so you can devour one. Or two. Or three.
