So by the time I get home this Thursday, I’ll be exhausted, not interested in fighting the holiday lovers for a place at the Restaurant Table. My husband of 29 years and I will eat in, chat, catch up, and likely go to bed early (although maybe Elementary is new on the Telly).
But, I realize most of you would like a bit more so I have a few ideas for you.
First, go to my post last Friday and you’ll find 20 Great Valentine Websites for your students. If you already finished these, read on:
- Here’s Valentine history, according to Wikipedia. Who knew it all started with Geoffrey Chaucer?
- Three great Valentine love poems from new efriend, Chris Wood. You can also drop by St. Valentine’s Day website for an entire list of heart-jerkers
- Are you looking for pithy, concise Valentine sayings? Try Creating Really Awesome Free Things. Be forewarned: They belong on candy hearts. These are a bit longer, but still saccharin.
- You not a serious, mushy sort of lover? Click here for quotes with a sense of humor.
- Need more substance to your Valentine sayings?
- Forgot a card? Print a Valentine Scrabble gram here
- Or try American Greeting’s free Valentine card creator (or 123 Greeting has a darling bear card)
- Drop by Quote Garden for a romantic quote or two (“Loving is not just looking at each other, it’s looking in the same direction.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939)
- No time at all? Need an entire message? I got you covered with St. Valentine’s Day website.
- Dying to know what Michelle Obama says on Valentine’s Day? Click.
What are my writer friends doing for Valentine Day? Maybe I’ll change my plans.
