It's Monday again...

It's time for Monday Madness again and OttO says 'Thank you all for playing Monday Madness. With Valentine's Day coming up this week, I thought I'd use questions offered by one of our very faithful MM players, rach. Thank you, Rach! Look for YOUR questions to be used in the future! Have a great week, everyone! =)'

1. How do you celebrate Valentine's Day? When my family were children, I usually baked a heart-shaped cake for them. Usually made sure to have some conversation heart candies around the house too. Okay, okay... I also sometimes baked the heart-shaped cake for the Bug's birthday on February 10 and/or the husband's birthday on January 30 too!

2. Name a special gift you received during Valentine's Day. Last year - my first Valentine's Day alone - Natalie (OttO) gave me a heart shaped box of chocolates with a pair of little froggy lovers on top. Yes, I love little froggies! It was really extra special because I think most of my family, including me, were still unsure of how to deal with some special occasions. Well gosh, wouldn't you know? A photo of that valentine was still on my little 'puter!

3. Define Love using each letter: L.O.V.E.
L ook past any shortcomings.
O pen your mind to his/her thoughts and ideas.
V alentine's Day - celebrate it more than once a year.
E mphasize the positive and be E nthusiastic.

Thanks Rach!!! Great questions and challenging too. Thank you!

Hi Sherle. Thanks for visiting my Monday Madness.

I love your Valentine answers. I think a homemade cake is a thoughtful way of celebrating Valentine's Day.

That heart shaped box of chocolates and cute frog couple is such a thoughtful gift. Thanks for sharing it.

I like your definition of love. I think it's imporant to learn to look past shortcomings in order to let the relationship grow. Yes, emphasizing the positive things make a relatioship more meaningful.

Advance Happy Valentine's Day!

love you - i am a dork

o.y. I'm going to blog!

Jan said...

Thanks everybody, for your comments... and Bug (Dork), do you want me to set you up? You need a change anyway - and I can do it and save whatever you want on the side panel. The new blogger is actually easier - and faster so I know you will like it. ;-)
