Valentines Day

I have never had much to do with Valentine's Day.
In fact I think we have far too many celebration days.
For me they are basically a date when we look to having something more we don't really need.
But this time Ray and I decided to go out for breakfast, we don't do that very often.
So its a treat.


I had helped out with a church wedding a couple of weeks ago.
As a thank you, the other ladies and I were given a voucher, for The Brown Jug.
 So I thought it was a nice day to use it.
The atmosphere was lovely with old fashioned wallpaper depicting yesteryear scenes.
Ray trimmed his beard short and I have had my hair colored.... 
We both felt fresh and new.
We did nothing extravagant or lavish, but it was nice.

  1. It sounds like a perfect way to use your coupon. The restaurant looks nice and comfortable. Your top photo reminds me so much of my first time to Australia and how much I enjoyed the difference in the street life. Happy Valentine's Day. xx

    1. It was nice Shelley. We went window shopping afterwards, just looking, I won't buy unless its necessary.
      We are aging. My hair is completely white and has been left like that for a couple of years. I felt like a change.
      I was so happy to get Ray to trim his beard also.

  4. Going to breakfast is one of my very favorite things to do--because I don't get to do it very often and because I love breakfast foods which I seldom take the time to make for myself!
    I keep forgetting that it's summer for you. Seems so strange to see people in shorts and sleeveless blouses when I'm wearing slacks, turtlenecked blouse and a sweatshirt! You look lovely!

    1. A lot of people wear shorts all year round here.. We are in the tropics. I feel the cold, but Ray rarely does.

  5. Pleased you had a nice day. I think the hype etc is way over the top and too much money is spent, that people can ill afford. Also it probably makes some people feel very marginalised.

    1. Hello Nita, Yes, if you can't afford it, then don't do it. We all need to think more before we spend. When you don't
      eat out often, then you really appreciate it when you do.

  9. Valentine's Day is way over-rated. You had an enjoyable day and that's more than what most people could ask for. Glad you had a lovely day!

  12. Dear Crystal, it seems to me that sharing a meal and being with a good friend--and Ray is that I'm sure as well as being your husband--is good most any time! Peace.
