Happy Valentines Day

We enjoyed a quiet little valentines dinner, just the three of us. We are all three sick so the rest of the family couldn't come. I missed them, because I had planned it for everyone. We'll try again another time.

I love preparing special dinners when I'm not feeling rushed. I really had fun.

My thoughts have turned to those that I love with all my heart on this valentine day. Many of you Blogger's have expressed your love in so many creative ways. I have felt it, and your examples have made it fun for me to share. My prayers are with those who have no one to love or no one to love them. Let's all look closely for those people this year, and change their lives.

I FORGOT to show you the special gift my mother gave me for Christmas. This handmade lace cloth and lace starched coasters. Her hands are still creating beauty.


  1. I love the lace cloth and those coasters are just SO cute! Love all your Valentines decorations...hope you will be well very soon! We just ate but looking at all this...oh yum! Come say hi when you can :D

  2. Mmmmm! Love crab legs (and all that chocolate stuff) :) Look so yummy! What a pretty table--hope you all get feeling better soon!

  3. That looks like some seriously good food going on! Hope you were not too sick to taste it.
    Lovely handmade linens to cherish!
    Have a lovely day Cindy and family.

  4. Cindy it looks beautiful AND delish! I love all your Valentine's and the beautiful table setting. I loved what you said about being mindful about those who are alone or lonely. I worry so much about people. I can feel that you do as well. So here's to helping someone find happiness this year!
    You are blessed to have a creative mom. The coasters and doiley are so pretty.

  5. Hope your V day was wonderful. LOVE crab. Looks like fun. Mimi

  6. Beautiful crocheted doilies! How wonderful that your mom is still creating these things! I'm trying to think of your mom's name. Is it Arlene?
    Too bad you're sick. I hope you get feeling better soon. I'm sure the rest of your family was sick that they missed such a good dinner!

  7. I thought about you on Valentine's and wondered if you were doing your special crab legs dinner for your family. Your table looks beautiful. Sorry you're sick. At least you're in good company :) Congratulations on your weight loss, that is fantastic!!!! I can hardly wait to see the new you!

  8. Your dinner looks so yummy! I hope you enjoyed your dessert.:) MMM ...the crab and steak look delish!
    I have been so sick since the day I saw you. I thought I was getting better from a sinus infection then and little did I know what was roaring in my chest! I am so sorry you all have it too!
    I am now on a relatively new percription, Avelox. Have you seen a doctor?
    I am not going to be able to go to lunch tomorrow. I do hope I can next time.
    Please get well:)

  9. Oh Cindy,
    Us three were sick on Valentine's Day too. I do hope you all are feeling better. Hubby and daughter are doing much better...I'm getting there too. Anyway, your Valentine's Day table and decorations looked very pretty. Have a wonderful day.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  10. We had crab too! for valentines dinner. I hope you are all feeling better now.
    Take care and enjoy your day,

  11. That is the Yummiest looking Feast ~ Hope you are all feeling Better....

  12. Hope that all three of you are much better now. You valentine's dinner looks spectacular! I just read through your last few posts. I collect thimbles too -- I definitely need a display shelf like you have. Mine are just scattered about on bookshelves and not properly displayed at the moment. Bravo for your desire to help those in need. Always a wonderful thing to give freely of yourself to others. Blessings to you and yours, Tammy

  13. Hi Cindy,
    It's so nice of you to remind us to remember those who don't have a valentine this year. I feel so very lucky to have my Poopsie, his name is John like yours. He is such a blessing in my life and truly my best friend.
