Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite celebration days, especially during my teaching years. I saw by the light in Teagan and Latah’s eyes children still see it as a great day. Teagan came home with a heart shaped box of candy and a pink carnation. Latah came home with six yellow carnations. I had a good day too. Latah presented me with a pop up card she had made in school and Keith Kreps, a student of mine who is now in his fifties, at a chance meeting called me sweetheart. What more could I want? ❤️ For my part I baked a batch of caramel rolls for the occasion.
On the evening of Valentine’s Day I put a cozy fire in the stove. Latah, the cat Teach, and I put together a floor puzzle I had borrowed from Jason’s family. Taylor took Teagan to Hood River to spend a couple hours with her friends.
Last week I drove over to spend a few days at Pebble Creek. The weather was beautiful so we spent lots of time outdoors. Last fall when a new septic system was put in at Pebble Creek the garden space was obliterated. So, preparing a new garden space was the order of the day.
When not helping with the fencing Sophie was busy cleaning Jason’s truck. Sam built himself a bow and arrow weapon, and I played ball with the new dog, Annie.
Sam also prepared a smoke bomb to show me. The bomb didn’t smoke as he had hoped but made an excellent huge black snake like we get on the 4th of July.
When I visit the Lindseth home I see all sorts of experiment projects Sam has going all over the house. While I was there he made a candy dispenser.
Evenings are time for relaxing at Pebble Creek. After a delicious dinner of a choice of grilled hamburgers or chicken we gathered in the living room to visit and play. Before bed we watched a couple of, “Clarkson’s Farm,” episodes. This is a new show for me and I love it. If you have Prime Video I highly recommend this British series. It is comical and informative. I am hooked and have been watching more episodes since I have been home.
Thank you Lindseth’s for sharing your every day lives with me. As always, there was never a dull moment.
