Anna and I came to a
Valentine's Day agreement when we started dating.
That first year I asked
"Which would you prefer, a heart shaped box of chocolate, a dozen
roses, or a nice dinner somewhere semi-fancy?"
She thought about it a bit
and said "A heart shaped box implies chocolate should only be for
special occasions, and I need chocolate almost every day. I cringe at
cut flowers and prefer to enjoy them in the ground, and dinner out on a
holiday sounds too crowded for my comfort level."
I was more than relieved to
hear such a practical answer. We decided to start skipping the holiday
and agreed that every day felt like Valentine's Day when you live in
paradise with someone you love.
We managed to haul in another
golf cart load of straw this morning before the ground thawed out.
Turns out you can squeeze on 7 bales if you ratchet strap one to the
back like in the photo above.
