i hope everyone had a lovely valentine’s day yesterday. i was given the gift of home-made dinner, cooked in my kitchen by phrysque. he wouldn’t let me lift a finger to help, and i didn’t quite know what to do with myself. fortunately, i had a dozen roses to arrange, which took at least, oh . . . three minutes. after dinner, we sat and talked for a bit and started to watch an episode of friends on dvd. we interrupted that to make coffee and scoop some ice cream. real, häagen dazs ice cream, also brought by phrysque. and with strawberries on top, no less! so simple, so nice, so sweet. so perfect.
