Valentine's soon to be here

Donna over at Brynwood is having a really neat Sweetheart Valentine giveaway. You really need to go check it out. She is really a unique lady.
Her blog is one of the blogs that I enjoy reading.
My youngest grandson told me that he has his Valentines bought for his party at school and that he got to pick them out himself. He was so proud of that and the birthday card that he made for his PaPa John.
We had gone to breakfast at the Airport Restaurant where you can see the 139Th's C-130 planes. Right now they are having school for other locations. We get planes from Germany, Spain, Canada, and all over here for school. They teach them how to fly in all kinds of weather. Just stick around and our weather is guaranteed to change. We had patches of black ice this morning.
Matt and Ethan had to go see the big planes up close. They wanted to go for a ride. Of course, we had a couple of small planes that flew in for breakfast. You never know what kind of planes you will see there. We are having an air show this summer that the Blue Angels are coming to perform here. I have seen them once before, but it is something that I would watch again.
I feel for the people that are going through the ice storm. We have gone through that and it was not fun. When we had ours, the kids would not let us stay at home after the third day. Our daughter had electricity so we went to their house. Dad and I was doing just fine. We were staying bundled up and the house didn't get below 40 degrees. I was getting concerned because of the medication we have to keep refrigerated and couldn't put outside because it can't be froze. We had a battery operated radio and knew what was going on. We were lucky because some were without electricitiy for over a week.
We only have roughly six weeks until the first day of Spring. I can't wait for the warmer weather. Have a good day.

Oh Shirley I am counting the days until Spring too!!! Today being groundhog day our Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow---6 more weeks of Winter. YIKES I am thankful no snow or ice here in Pittsburgh just COLD.
I think it is so cute how your grandson is so excited about picking out his own Valentines. I miss those days of decorating Valentine's boxes and makiing valentines for the kids at school :) Stay safe and warm.

Hi Shirley, So great to see you and thank you for your visit and kind comment.

I too am counting the days to Spring. We are having some very cold weather for us here in Texas.

How fun for your grandson to pick out Valentines and how proud he must be to make the birthday card. Such a cute time. The Airport Restaurant must have been fun.

I love your blog background and header. Stay warm and safe!

Hugs, Celestina Marie

Yes, I've been through some very tough times through an ice storm without electricity for a week. I just love Donna and have already entered her giveaway. Yes, I find my knitting and crocheting is very relaxing, that's probably why I do it so much! Have a nice week! Twyla
