Valentine's Day Present


I've been busy doing other things, just every day life things.  So busy that I forgot to photograph what cupid brought me on the day for lovers.  I'm not a jewelry girl.  I'm a hmmmmmm what am I as far as clothes go...let me think...OK, I guess I'm a bit fussy.  Or maybe it's that husband and I are so very different as to how we think a woman should look and dress.  Husband likes 'em tarted up.  That's the simple truth of it.  He likes lots of make-up.  I sometimes wear make-up if we're going out, but even then it's very light and very natural.  He likes slinky clothe.  I dress at Ann Taylor.  We've decided that there is no point to him buying me surprise gifts.  I tell him what I'd like and we go and get it. 

I've been lusting after enamel coated cast iron pieces.  If I were forty years old, I'd feel justified in insisting uponLeCreuset.  At my age though paying  two hundred and sixty dollars for an oval dutch oven seems wasteful.  Macy's had a one day close-out sale on Martha Stewart enamel on cast iron cookware.  It was all half price.  I got a 5.5qt round dutch oven , a 7qt oval dutch oven and a square grill pan. 

The only complaint husband had was that he had to carry that heavy cookware from the Will Call door to the car.  If you've never tried lifting one, you'd be surprised at how heavy they are.  My only complaint is that they are too large to use here at the trailer.  I'll have to wait until April to try them out.
