Love the pic and great ideas for Valentine’s Day.



~post by Julie W.

So tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. I have total faith in my Valentine to pony up with the flowers, chocolate, champagne, etc. But you know, just in case, I thought I might point out a few things I’ve found around the store that might, I don’t now, make the PERFECT VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT FOR ME. Or someone like me. Or me.


The New Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook by Martha Hopkins & Randall Lockridge

Organized by aphrodisiac, this cookbook covers nineteen sensual foods, from ginger to strawberries to oysters,with some very lovely photography. Of course you don’t just give a cookbook on Valentine’s Day. You cook from it. And surprise me with the meal. By candlelight. Yes.



One word: JEWELERY. (Specifically, that lightning bolt necklace on the left there. There are also earring to match. The lockets are also awfully nice….)

Day 3

Day 2:  Well this is my second day to respond to the challenge to write everyday.

I live in a small town in Texas, and guess what, it snowed here Christmas Day. It never snows in this area of  Texas.  It was so beautiful, but cold (burr) cold.  The wind was coming out of the north and blowing about 15 miles per hour.  After it snowed about 3-4 inches, the trees were limp with heavy snow.  I thought they might break.  My brother-in-law was here visiting from the nursing home that he lives at (he had a stroke) so my husband had to take in back to the nursing home. Very large flakes were coming down and the wind was blowing hard.  It was fun getting him into the car with his walker (not really), almost froze to death, just kidding. Snow is still on the ground tonight, sum has melted, but still cold, supposed to get down to 23 tonight.  I loved the crisp air that it brought and this morning the sun shone on the snow and it glistened.  I felt what the people up north go through now (just a little).

Weekly Writing Challenger………

I’m responding to the weekly writing challenge from the “Daily Post”. I’m gong to take that challenge in regard to commit to write each day for a whole week. I have to really think about what I would write about, but as was said in the challenge post, you can post a poem, photos etc. I don’t have to write a bunch just a few lines if I want. I can write about the New Year coming upon us, or something about myself that I would like to accomplish this New Year. Maybe I could write about my family and the funny things they get them self into. Or maybe I can just post a recipe I like or others would like. Thanks DP Challenge for all the new ideas.

Writing is harder than I thought it would be. Can’t find the subject to write about sometimes. I guess it’s called writer’s block. I look at some of the blogs on the web and some people just go on and on with their writing’s and  I wonder how do they do that! I so appreciate  the opportunity to write what I want to write,  when it probably doesn’t seam to sound like I have any thing to say. Hopefully, I will continue to learn and grow by my peers on the blog’s. There are some great blogs out there.
