Happy Valentine's Day!

I don't have any big plans for Valentine's Day. When you've been married a while you don't make a big deal out of it as you used to. Hubby did wish me a Happy Valentine's Day this morning. Those were the first words out of his mouth. He usually doesn't remember so quickly. He also got me a card and attempted to make me something.

We have a bunch of old vinyl records in the basement. Many of them that aren't worth anything anymore. We've been trying to come up with something to do with them rather than just toss them all out. We can't find a place that will take them for recycling. So in searching around online we came up with the idea of painting them and making them into some sort of wall decoration or clocks. We've seen some pretty cool ones.

So he's been messing around with painting some of them and came up with this for me:

As you can see the edges of the hearts are a little rough. I just think he needs to use a different, more sturdy material for the stencils. He just tried paper and the paint seeped up under it. Otherwise I think it looks pretty cool!

Skowt has her first official babysitting job tonight! She's excited, but also a little nervous. So am I! I'm kinda glad we don't have any plans tonight so we can be home in case she runs into any snags and needs to call home.

We didn't do anything, either.

I went to the grocery store, then picked up a pizza for dinner!

that's a cool idea to do with the records. How sweet. How'd the babysitting gig go? We did dinner and a movie for V Day.
