Happy Valentine's Day!!

I hope everyone is having a great Valentine's Day.  I know I've already eaten too many chocolates and cinnamon hearts - but it's been full of yumminess.

I woke up to a great surprise from Stu (I'll let the pictures tell the story) - 

I very subtly hinted at these earrings last week when we walked by Ragnar Jewellers in Oakridge.  They are 14K white gold, but they aren't too heavy.  I think they are just perfect!

In other goings on-

I know I've been gone for  a while.  I really haven't been feeling myself lately, and I haven't been knitting or doing anything I wanted to talk about.  It's been all I can do just to get my butt to work in the morning.

For many years I've struggled with um, let's say low-mood issues.  I shall not use the "D" word here even though you all know what I'm talking about.  I've been great for several years (since '02), but as I said to my doctor yesterday - "I seem to have fallen off the good mental health wagon".  So, if I have not seemed like myself for the last 6 months, you now know why.  

Anyhoo -- I'm dealing with it, and things should start improving in the next little while.  I'm looking forward to my knitting obsession to reappear.  

It's really hard for me to even mention any of this to anyone, so there will likely not be any more about it here. 

Did I do a good job distracting you with earring pictures while I talked about other things?  

Happy Valentine's Day!

Keep on truckin in those lovely earrings. You have done it so far, you can still do it.

Yes, you distracted us well. The earring are lovely.

Perhaps you need a visit to Florida to make you feel better.

Take care of yourself first and don't worry about us. We will always be here for you.

The earrings were a great diversionary tactic - I never even heard the rest...

Take care of yourself.
