Wednesday

What a beautiful day we had yesterday!! It was pretty cold in the morning, but such a vivid midnight blue that brightened and brightened and turned into a gorgeous late winter day. The temperature here has been so much above normal that it seems like spring is already here. People are having flowers bloom and everything. But yesterday was a return to cooler weather. Worth it, still, to see that vivid sky!

We had a wonderful Valentines day on Monday. Actually sort of celebrated it for the first time. We are not Hallmark people. But, it WAS our 20 month anniversary, so I guess we can use that excuse. Ethan gave me a rose and a very sweet card and some very tasteful and nice lingerie. I gave him a clean bedroom, dinner, a bed of rose petals (overrated. Had to remove those petals from various places for an hour!), a 52 weeks of romance kit and some lingerie (not for him to wear, although the clerk at Amour on the Boulevard really wanted me to get him a thong. She swore he would love it. Can you imagine!?! There is no way he would even CONSIDER even trying it on for a moment. I thought it was hilarious). I must say, Ethan has very nice taste as far as the lingerie goes. His was much nicer quality and in a nicer style than the one I picked out. Go, Ethan, go!!

Basically we hung out, watched a movie and listened to soft music and did a lot of talking. It was a really nice evening. And then back to the grind again....... Ethan's boss is gone for 2 weeks. A little more stressful since he is the only one there, but also much nicer since it is his strange boss who is not there. A very odd duck, that one. We have lunch together in the lockshop when his boss is gone. Not that I am not allowed to be there when his boss is, I just prefer not to, as does Ethan. So that is nice. People are being really appreciative of Ethan not blowing them off when they call for work to be done--he actually goes out and does it! Sounds less than amazing, but not everyone has the work ethic and drive that Ethan does. Especially not the aforementioned boss. Over an hour a day wasted on email, ebay and internet jokes?? Not so efficient. But, anyway......

Another Sonics game today. Our last one before the All Star break. We are playing Golden State, so it should be pretty easy, but we are not looking past anyone these days. The game starts at 6 instead of 7 since it is being aired on ESPN, so we will get done earlier. I like that. Ethan cleaned last night instead of today, because there wouldn't have been enough time to do it today. So nice to have it out of the way.

Lets see.....my plans for today are to either scrapbook another page ( I finally did one last night, after a few weeks absence. I really have to be in the right mood to want to scrapbook), or do some photo editing. I really enjoy that. It takes forever, but I am really starting to see some cool effects you can add, or adding things into a picture, etc. It is fun to be creative and see something that you have created that looks neat. Not everyone has that creativity in them. I am excited that I do.

Really looking forward to that scrapbooking convention in Portland next month. It should be a good time. We are going to each bring our own scrapbook stuff (Davinie, Sabrina and I) and all hang out in our suite sharing ideas and supplies in betweeen scrapbook convention activities. At the one here in Seattle(bellevue, actually) there was so much stuff to buy that I hadn't seen anywhere else, and at great prices. I got tons of paper for 10cents a sheet, even for vellum and fance 12x12 papers. Very cool. Well, I suppose I will post any pictures that I end up editing on here.......
