I am racing the clock once again. The day made itself it was good.

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I promised DH I would get to bed early again --it did not happen.

I cannot change it it's too late.

I went to the car was and when i got home and looked at it it was a dirty mess. I told DH I would go back he said don't bother it taken most of the dirt off.

I DROVE back and said I paid for a $12.00 car wash and the sides are still dirty, He said I had driven it on wet rads and the car was splashed. I said look along the bottom it is shiny and yet the middle is still dirty. He said so what are you asking I said please clean it again. HE DID so that I could change.

Iwalked the rail trail when friends asked me to. I walked with cleats but I fell on Black ice and went down. I was hurt but not badly hurt. I wore the right clothes so it was just a bruised knee.

I did the right thing wearing lined Denim Jeans and a long Duffle coat and good gloves so I was not hurt.I made the right choice.

We were invited to a chocolate tasting and DH wanted to go, I arrived home too late to go mostly because the fall slowed my walking but I did walk over 10,000 steps. I went home and told DH what had happened.

There was no problem I was forgiven and was given sympathy- How nice is that, there was no problem.

We waited for our financial planner to arrive a couple of friends cam eby. We had tea and they had scones. The financial planner never came, that was a surprise but our company stayed and we chatted and they suggested we go out to dinner. DH said yes it is Valentines day.
We made plans to eat at a restaurant and they left to meet with us later.

Once again plans were foiled but there was another silver lining.

We had a really good supper and good company and now it is almost midnight but I had to tell you all we had a really nice day despite the problems.
Together we work really well DH and I .

We had a lovely Valentines day No chocolate, no flowers just some nice surprises instead.

    I hope you are not having any after-effects from your fall today. Thank goodness you were well padded! Sounds like you had a good Valentine's Day. Often the best days are those that don't quite go according to plan. You seem to go with the flow very well, glad you were able to enjoy the way the day unfolded. emoticon

    Oh, Pat, what a beautiful day for you! Bob always makes me a card on the computer using words that come straight from his heart! I''d much rather have that than an expensive one from the store with words that aren't his! Sometimes days and a dinner such as you had are so much nicer than something planned. You're right - the two of you make a fantastic team!!!

Sorry about your fall. I do hope it won't be more troublesome tomorrow. Having 3 falls, since July 2012, (2 on ice) I found that in the next few days after the fall I was stiff and sore. My left knee still lets me know....that fall was Christmas Eve (black ice). I hope you have better luck than I did, and your leg will get well real fast.

Looking toward a great weekend.
