Happy Hearts Day. From what I have observed and read from some of the other farm / ranch women, most Ag boys are not hopeless romantics. Asking them to put on a suit and tie and taking you out for a fine dining experience (more than one fork on the table), showering you with roses and candy is a little bit out of their element. But they do have their own special way of showing you how much they care.
I remember growing up how my dad would bring my mom Crocuses when they first appeared in the spring. They are still one of my favorite flowers......maybe after a winter like we have had I just want to see any sign of spring.
Rob's not really big on flowers either but there are signs that we both really must care about each other.
How many wife's would go for this if it wasn't love:
Baby calves on their new kitchen floor
Turning the garage into a calving barn (the first winter we owned our place and had no barn)
Walking across the freshly washed kitchen floor to get medicine out of the fridge.
Transferring the reno / holiday budget to the new bull / tractor budget.
How many husbands would go for this it it wasn't love:
Spaghetti or Mac n Cheese more than once in a week during calving season
The lovely sight of you with no makeup and toque hair
Baking consisting of a bag of Oreo cookies
The piles of laundry that decorate our bedroom
In any relationship its the little things that make a difference. I do love flowers, but the small things matter the most. Enjoy your Valentines Day and I hope that everyone has someone special in their life to think about today.
If you are dining out order a great steak or prime rib and show how much you love BEEF!
