We celebrated Valentine's Day by taking the dogs for a run in the woods.
No, not that kind of run because, Hello? Have you met me?
We were riding the four-wheeler and said dogs were running whereupon they spied an armadillo. Maddie the German Shepherd managed to catch the armadillo, who I've named Reuban, by the tail and hilarity ensued. Dazey the Golden Retriever aka Big Chicken was briefly interested until Reuban jumped on her nose whereupon she decided to studiously examine a suspicious mud puddle until Maddie had Reuban safely under control.
Armadillos are amazingly sturdy, feisty creatures and Rueban was no exception. We called a truce, signed the Canine-Armadillo Treaty of 2010 and went on our merry way.
Upon returning home we immediately settled in for some more redneck fun...NASCAR.
No, I am not a fan. Again, Hello? Have you met me? I do not understand the fascination with watching cars go in a circle.
My sweet husband completed my Valentine's Day by gifting me with roses...
and a blueberry bush.
I do hope that the barren condition of my gifts is not symbolic of the state of our marriage.
Actually, he knows my practical nature and gifted me with florals that won't die...at least until I forget to water them this summer.
Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day too!
