Jamie stopped by this afternoon and used his phone to snap this picture of the beautiful yellow tulips that Jim gave me last night for Valentine’s Day. Flowers are for sale all over this city…in florist shops, kiosks, stands under the metro, on the street…no matter which season we’re in.
Even winter. The brilliant colors add welcome variety to very grey winter days. I’m always amazed to see tulips for sale at this time of year. But always thankful to have them around the flat.
Jim led a medical Bible study last night so he didn’t return home until after 10. A little late for dinner! So tonight he treated me to dinner OUT. We went to an Argentinian grill that is only a few blocks from our flat. He tried one of the new entrees — pork chops stuffed with pineapple and then cooked over an open flame. They looked quite tasty! I had my favorite: Salat Rosario. A salad consisting of avocado, mushrooms, tomatoes…and a little bit of lettuce. The dressing is very rich, so a little goes a long way! We finished up with cappuccino and strolled home.
You know, there’s nothing like celebrating Valentine’s Day with the love of your life. And, even better, celebrating every day together.
