Happy Valentine's Day!

As I mentioned yesterday, I had to wake up at 4:30am for work. (At this moment, all the women in my life who give Tim a light-hearted hard time for being so horrible about remembering holidays should start to smile...) When I went into the bathroom, I saw a huge card sitting on the bathroom sink! It was a Valentine's Card with a precious note in it! I went to give Tim a big hug and say thank you and he said "there are more gifts in the living room!" Well, I was shocked. I went into the living room and on the table was breakfast stuff laid out and two wrapped up gifts - a mother of pearl necklace and a seashell bracelet! I've asked Tim to take a photo of these items for the blog. I wore the bracelet to work today and will wear the necklace tomorrow!

Work went well. I came home a bit earlier since I went in so early and then went to the gym. I really, really hate exercising at the gym. However, it is the only exercise I'll get here given the air polution, so I'll do it. But for the record - I dislike exercising.

After the gym, I made supper which was corn on the cob and pumpkin soup with a glass of wine.

I am going to check my work email and get some reading done now. Have a Happy Valentine's Day to all of you since your's is just starting!

A dozen roses and a heart balloon showed up at our door today. It was from my baby! It was very nice to be able to celebrate Valentines Day together, even though she had to leave for work at 5:30.
Went to the fitness center with Kendra when she got home. Even for me, it's been a long time since I've exercised purely for exercise sake. Going to the gym reminds me of why high school was so traumatic and why I don't belong to any memberships in Philly.

Today, during my explorations, I came across the Manila American Cemetary and Memorial, a huge expanse of trees and grass with thousands of white crosses and names etched in stone, from those who died in combat from 1941-45. It was pretty overwhelming to see the rows and rows of crosses on the highly manicured lawn, I would just like to go back sometime later in the day when the shadows are longer. As you can see from the pics, it was a gorgeous day, but it didnt start out that way. I was up since 5am working on the computer by the window and just looked nasty outside. The ever-present smog seemed heavier, lower, and thicker than normal, and the sky had a sickly yellow cast to it. I started walking inspite of this, and as I walked, the wind picked up and chased the settling smog out and left a beautiful blue sky with bright sunshine and cool clouds. Hence my sunburn...

Tim -- I just don't know how you do it. You are such a great photographer.
