Sniffles

I have the sniffles and I'm not happy about it. It started on Wednesday afternoon. I worked from home yesterday so I wouldn't infect my office mate and today I'm feeling a little better.


Only 36 more days until Spring!


This weekend is Valentine's ... any big plans? We did our thing last weekend, so it'll be quiet around the homefront. I am looking forward to making a big pot of chicken soup. I have a bottle of merlot at the house:








which I'm also looking forward to opening. I was never really a huge fan of merlot but I tried this one at a tasting recently and I really enjoyed it.


I'll pick up V-Day cards and candy for the Prince and the Princess. It's a long-standing tradition although I think they think they are too old to receive little heart-shaped boxes of candy from their mother ... but what can I say?

I was buying these enviro-logs for the fireplace:

They don't really put out any heat, but it makes the room feel cozy and they are supposedly good for the environment. Well, last week I decided that I was going to get some real wood and start a real fire. Warning: Don't buy packaged wood from the supermarket -- that mess doesn't light for nothing! I was really pissed. Bryan and I both spent the better part of the afternoon trying to start that fire with no success. And Bryan is the master fire starter. I'm going back to the envirologs.

**sigh**

Only 36 days until Spring ...

Have a great weekend.

My daughter had more than the sniffles, but is on the mend. It was a long week!

I taste tested Pinot Grigio last week, and really like it. ;)

Have a great weekend!
