Would it be Valentines Day?

I left my 1st job for the day.  That day would be Valentines Day.  When I got to my second job for the day I was met by a beautiful card  lined with beautiful heart felt words and a nice grocery store bouquet of flowers.  The leggy flowers were trimmed and neatly organized in a glass vase by my favorite co-worker.  That co-worker would be my husband of almost 38 years.  We are lucky to work together both in life and in making a living.  We have always been great at life but for the past six years making a living has been a bit of a struggle.  We are a sub-contractor in the new construction business.  I am sure I do not need to say more except hence the first job of the day.  Things are definitely getting better and I am hoping the future will allow me to leave my part time job.  Until then my days are long and tiring but on Valentines day I got home and was met by a nice package of goodness sent by my Bead Soup Blog Party Partner.  Patricia Buchanan  She sent me the most beautiful arrangement of gemstones and a cute gold filled clasp.  I love gemstones they are my first love of beads.  The soup contained the most beautiful focal gemstone and coordinating stones including two different cuts of smokey quartz, hessonite garnets, citrine and jaspers.  Thank you so much Pat I have a dozen ideas of what I will be doing with them.

Thank You to the Pats (also my husband's name) for a great Valentines Day!
