valentinaversary? valentineversary?

our anniversary is the day before valentines day. so. we usually combine things a little.

but this year that meant at least 4 days of anniversary and valentine’s day. and it was wonderful.

it also included these lovely flowers. lillies, of course, and one rose.

they are beautiful. and now that we’re both home feeling sick and lame, it’s awfully nice to have them brightening things up.

the cat’s dreams…

it was sunny enough to merit opening the porch door today, to let the cat sit by the screen door and dream.

it wasn’t warm enough to keep it open for very long–but this is the professor’s favorite wintertime activity. so i indulged him for a little while.

who knows what he sees and hears and smells. birds certainly. but what else?

i wish i could get that much pleasure from simply sitting by an open window.
