I am just back from an early morning Valentine walk in the half moon. It is chilly this morning, 16 degrees at my house but there is no wind so it felt warmer. It felt good to breathe in the fresh air. I spent part of my Sunday making cards for my family, one thing I LOVE to do! Valentine's Day was first observed in 496 AD. When I see that year I am reminded of how my lifetime is a blip on the screen and it encourages me to GET THINGS DONE! So onward I go this morning...  

Below are the latest posts since my last email a week ago, located at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/. Thanks for all the blog ideas/topics sent my way.
