Happy Friday!

Happy Valentine’s Day for those of you celebrating! It’s going to be a busy weekend for us, so Wizard and I are staying in tonight and making steak and lobster to celebrate V-Day. Saturday we’re celebrating BLB’s (youngest son) birthday, so I’m going to attempt the Sugar Shock Candy Cake. Not sure I can pull this one off though.  Then Sunday we have another party to go to.

And someone is on two extremely pressing deadlines, but we won’t talk about that!

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’m planning to give away a few books through out the day on my FB page here if you want to hop over and enter.

So a little story, the other night Wizard picked up the chair I wanted for my backup office upstairs. After dinner Wizard was putting it together in the garage while I was working on revisions for THE COWBOY MARINE. When I came to a stopping place, I went in the garage  to check on Wizard.

He looked up and said, “How do you do that?”

I’m more confused than usual. “Do what?”

“Show up exactly when I need you? Come hold this for me.”

I went over and held the chair so he could finished assembling it.

Once he had the screw thingie in, he asked again, “So? How do you do it?”

Seriously, I didn’t know he needed me. It was just a random guess because he’d been out in the garage for a while and I decided to check on him.  But I told Wizard, “When you love someone you just know these things.”

I think he might have gagged a little, but I ignored that :-)  He’s lucky I didn’t say, “There’s a hidden camera in the garage–good luck funding it.” That would have been pretty funny to see him ripping the garage apart searching for a non-existent camera. Wish I’d thought of it!

So are you doing anything for Valentine’s Day? Any weekend plans?

    Cute story. You’re right though, when you love someone you just know things. I think we’re connected that way. The brain is really an amazing thing :).

    Good luck on the cake ;). BLB is so funny that he loves candy/sugar so much. Are you going to post a photo of the cake?

    Have a great time celebrating BLB’s birthday and attending the other party.

    Hubs just got back from England. I haven’t seen him yet but I did hear him – SNORE. So we’re not doing anything for V-day. We are going out for dinner Sat as usual.

    Have a Happy Valentine’s Day and a great (if busy) weekend :)!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Wizard, too! And Happy Birthday to BLB! Good luck with the cake. I’m sure it’ll be awesome. =o)

    Those stupid chairs really do need two people to assemble. Good thing for Wizard your witch senses tingled and you arrived at just the right point to help. That hidden-camera gag would’ve been awesome. Mean, but awesome. LOL

    We’re not doing anything for Valentine’s. I offered to make Hubs a heart-shaped hamburger for dinner, though, and we both had a good laugh.

    Now that the rewrite is finished, this weekend I’ll be working on some new words (hopefully) and sending out some queries (for a different book) with my newly revised and oh-so-awesome letter. Keep your fingers crossed. Plus, Olympics watching and I finally picked up a copy of Jeanine Frost’s Up From the Grave, so I’ll be reading that. =o)

    Jen, you and the Wiz crack me up. Still so much in love after all these years. ;) And yeah, wives just know these things. But next time, mention the cameras because…well…just because. :twisted:

    Happy B-day to BLB and I’m betting the cake will be AWESOME! Best of luck on the deadlines. You’ll do it.

    I’m alone this Valentine’s. Lawyer Guy is in the hospital and he keeps sending me home. He hates hovering. :roll: We’ll celebrate when he’s home.

    Happy Valentine’s Day, witches! May you always have romance in your lives! <3

    Viki, LOL on the snoring–except it’s not as funny in the middle of the night. Glad your hubby is home safe from his trip. Hope you guys have a good Valentine’s Day.

    B.E., you should make the heart shaped hamburger!

    I really wish I’d thought of the hidden camera–but he’d have gotten the truth out of me way too fast to make it really fun.

    Congrats on finishing the rewrite! You sound motivated! I have my fingers crossed for you–always!

    Oh no, Silver, is LG okay? He’s been so sick with the flu and things this year. How are you doing? LG is right, you need to rest too. I really hope he has a quick recovery.

    Wizard and I’ve been very lucky, and while I tease a lot, I don’t take him for granted (most of the time.)

    Sending good wishes your way.
