With that in mind, I usually try to think of things that Trevor has asked me to do that I have been procrastinating about doing or maybe have even forgotten that he wanted me to do for him. When I asked him what he wanted me to do for him for Valentine's Day, he reminded me that I had never made him his own pillowcases; I made around 40 pairs of pillowcases for gifts a few years ago, so I can see how he'd feel left out not receiving his own 'special' pair. He also wanted some bags to take with him to the range to hold spent brass so he could bring it home to reload--easy enough.
|I got this material--fake leather--at Goodwill for $0.35. It made three brass bags that are basically over sized sandwich bags. I think they look pretty darn spiffy!|
I'm also going to make him a sign for his reloading room that says "Trevor's Custom Ammo." My Grandpa had taken down an old white picket fence on his property because it was rotten. Grandpa was going to throw away all the wood. I snatched a few pieces because they are cool. So I'll make Trevor's sign on one of those pieces.
Last of all, I'll make him his favorite (extremely fattening) meal on Valentine's Day. He always wants fried pork chops, mashed potatoes and gravy, and corn. I'll probably take lemon bars to his work that day as well...he can only eat one or two bars, and I do NOT need a pan of baked goods just sitting around the house all day!
So, what are you doing for the special people in your life this Valentine's Day?
Have a super day, and don't forget to take care of you!
