That's nice, Ginnie.

Na tells me we shall be visiting a nice, restaurant this evening...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray. Astrid works late shift today, so there's nothing planned for us. The real reason is that this is one of those American holidays she has nothing with...because of its commercialism. I totally get it and try to sneak in something like this instead.

Having just seen this timely reminder I have rushed downstairs and placed a card and a chocolate rabbit in the appropriate place. Whew!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good for you, Chris. Have a lovely day. I was just explaining to Astrid that flowers and chocolates are the two biggest gifts on Valentine's Day. She HATES the commercialism and that it all came over the Big Pond from America. Deep down she's a true romantic at heart, every day! smile

Happy Valentine's Day, Love of my Life. I think I am the only one that did not grow up with 'Valentine's Day.
sad It flew over the big pond and to me, too commercial here in Holland)
To me, every day is Valentine's Day.....
A great picture and I even remember where you captured it.
Ginnie Hart: Trust me, MLMA...I do know your feelings about America's commercialism of this day. I totally get it. That's why it was fun for me to surprise you with this today. There are ways to get around what we don't like about the day. I'd much rather have you make me into a Dutch woman than me make you into an American!!! Seriously. smile

Just the right gentle touch, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Lisl. I figured most people could handle this. smile
Love the rose.
Ginnie Hart: You'd think it'd be a tulip, Michael, wouldn't you! smile
Reminds me of a pic from about 3 years ago,
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Mick. grin
A sweet one from Holland Ginnie. Have a lovely day both of you
Ginnie Hart: It doesn't get sweeter, Janet. smile Thanks.

Sweet -sweet - sweet - meer dan drie kusjes!
(Like Astrid I did not grow up with Valentine's day like all my friends - but our newspapers are full of cards ...)
Ginnie Hart: Bedandt, Philine. I'm in total agreement with Astrid. I love staying away from the commercialism. But I always try to sneak something in on her that doesn't cost one red cent! smile

Thank you. Enjoy the day of kisses and dancing. smile

Don and I will cook lamb chops (his favorite), Nigella Lawson's mac and cheese (gruyere, mascarpone, mozzarella and parmesan), and salad. It will be a fun change of pace from eating out.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear sister. Enjoy your fabulous meal. I wish we could join you! smile

Happy Valentine's Day, Ginnie - and Astrid. Cute, cute, cute photograph. I've got grandmother duty this afternoon at the boy's school for their Valentine's party. It will be fun, but wild I imagine. (They can celebrate Valentine's Day at school, but not Halloween or Christmas. The times, they are a changing.)
Ginnie Hart: Oh how I remember those days, Sue, with g'son Nicholas. I have no memory of what these kids are allowed to do at school nowadays in GA but didn't you love when our kids could go to school dressed up for Halloween! Those were the days, my Friend! Thanks.
Very cute Ginnie! Happy Valentines Day to both you and Astrid smile
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Martin. smile

Luckily, I'm working from home today so able to deal with the truck loads of cards being delivered by the Royal Mail. I like the hidden bouquet of flowers to be given over at some point.

"What is this thing called, love?" wink
Ginnie Hart: HAHA, Alan...you ol' skeptic, you. grin

Happy Valentine's Day, Ginnie! I am glad you're spending it with your special lady! Hope you guys have a wonderful day ... I know I will be enjoying some chocolates today. smile
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Emily. We won't do anything special other than just be together...which is more than enough for us! smile
Lovely pic' Ginnie, a happy valentines day to you both.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Superbe idée pour la Saint Valentin; j'aime beaucoup le traitement.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Olivier. Merci.
What a lovely find Ginnie. Happy Valentine to you and Astrid smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bill. I remembered at the last minute that I had this in my archives and knew I just had to post it. smile
What a lovely little ornament, Maureen would love one of these for her small collection of Dutch ornaments in blue.
Ginnie Hart: I saw this in a shop window while on the island of Texel back in 2011, Brian. The shop was closed, sadly. If I ever find one again, I'll buy it on the spot. smile

Happy Valentines to both of you!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks to you, too, Richard. Merci.
Are you the one on the right or on the left?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Larry. I was gonna let you guess but since Astrid is the one who takes care of the flowers/plants, this is a no-brainer. smile
Aww... I was hoping to see you in cowgirl costume thou. He he ;o)
Happy Valentine's Day!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Astrid would be the cowgirl and I'd be the Indian! grin Thanks for the smile, LC.
Cute! Happy Valentines Days for you Ginnie smile
