I have had a pretty romantic day, but not with Dennis. Dennis woke up two minutes before he had to be at work and threw himself out the door five minutes later. Instead, I have had a love affair with:
The weather. The other day I felt the wind blow spring into my face, and it kept doing so today. I took a walk down to the river and just stood for a while. I held my hands against one if the metal gates leading out to the river bank and it was warm from the sun. I listened to sunny music and skipped as I returned home.
Food. I made the most beautiful tomato sauce that I had with pasta, mozzarella, and lots of basil. I made the sauce yesterday and cooked it with one red onion, tomato puree, garlic, eight chopped up tomatoes, a spoonful of sugar, salt and pepper. Honestly, it was sexual. And basil, I love basil.
Tonight Dennis and I will open a bottle of bubbles and eat cake. I think he’s cooking. He might think that I am cooking. But at least we’ll have Prosecco.
Lastly, I just arrived at work, and the semi famous actor who lives next door to the family where I am a nanny is having a successful Valentine’s Day. I guess he has a few dates to tick off during the 14th of February…
