Sometimes the work just piles up and Friday is especially bzzzy -- if I'm hoping to have free time on the weekend. And that's OK. It was interesting. It was productive. DH was wearing his new bird-patterned bow tie that I found for h... Read more

It WAS too cold to cross country ski. WAY too cold. Got into our ski clothes, got out to the golf course ski trails, got out of the car and the wind was blowing fiercely -- the kind of wind that makes your face feel immobile. Other skie... Read more
