Valentine's Day is one of my favorite days. It is a month of love and on that day there is more of it. Granted, it isn't the romantic kind. Yet, it is wonderful to let those around us know how much we care for them. I send out more notes and give more flowers and make more treats for people this month than I do any other one.
This year is another really cool thing about February. This month, every few years has a leap year. If you look at the internet, it happens about every 4 years. My favorite site for learning about this cool part of the year is HERE. It is for kids, so it is easy for me to understand. I love the operetta 'Pirates of Penzance'. Because Fredric was born on a leap year and indentured to pirates til he was 21..ends up needing to be with them longer. GREAT fun musical.
And snow. Being a winter baby, I adore snow. Yes, I get cold. Yes, it is a pain to shovel. Yes, it is wet when it melts. It is so much fun!!!!! OK, I'll stop, but I do get frustrated with those who rail at winter and snow in the well, winter months! I wish we'd get some. No, I wish we'd get a LOT.
