Hurray for V-Day!

I was coming home from a rough day at work thinking nothing was going to perk up my mood. Then voila:

Nothing like roses and chocolates to make a girl feel special. We went for a late sushi dinner at Kotobuki, a Japanese restaurant in Roslyn out on Long Island. We had a good time eating lots of fish and listening to the trumpet player they had there. The restaurant was also giving out single roses to all the women there, thus the really tall flower peeking out over the rest.

JF talks up a whole spiel every year about Valentine's Day being this fake holiday where you feel obligated to spend money and go out...then he never fails to surprise me with little gifts. I can't tell whether he says all that stuff just to throw me off or he just gives in 'cause he knows I like all that cheesy V-day stuff. I realize it's a manufactured holiday and all but like any holiday it's nice to celebrate and have another chance to show someone that you care whether it's a romantic interest or your friends and family.

In that spirit happy Valentine's Day to everyone out there in blogland! Thanks for reading all my posts and sending your comments. It always raises my spirits to get the emails especially when I'm having a tough day on the job.

This is a cat bed that JF's mom gave Cosette for a Valentine's Day present. We both liked it but weren't sure if she would go for this cushy type of bed.

We purchased this blue cat bed at the shelter pet store because we just needed something at the moment. It's basically a mat with raised sides but she loves it.

As predicted she wasn't very interested in the new bed. Even when I sprayed catnip on it she was only interested in it for about an hour. Then we got the idea to put the old bed inside the new bed and it worked like a charm.

It's a bit of a tight squeeze but as long as she's happy...although she was disappointed we didn't bring her out for sushi as tuna is her fav food!

I "heart" you too!

Such pretty roses. I thought of buying myself some, but instead treated myself to cosmos. :o)
