Valentine's Day again. You either love it or you hate it. I guess I'm still on the fence. I mean, love is great and I'm all for that. But shouldn't you be using every day as an opportunity to express love for those around you? (deep thought, i know.)
But no matter what my thoughts are on the holiday itself, I'm looking forward to spending an evening with my fella. Years ago, my mom got a recipe for this delicious parfait out of The Oregonian, and it's been a family favorite ever since that time. This year was the first year I attempted to make it. Let's hope that it gets a good reception! (glen ...)
Looking over previous posts, I realized that last year I did not include a list of things I love, as in the years before (which i'm sure you allllll noticed). Seeing as how this is a gross violation of a blog tradition that I started three years ago, I must repent of the error and write out a list this year in an attempt to make amends. In this small way I can take steps toward a better and brighter future.
Here goes (in no particular order, for the most part):
Elinor (my piano)
Pretty choir music
My rice bag
Opportunities to laugh hysterically (even at myself)
I'll stop there. Obviously some of those items are a little more frivolous than others, so perhaps I should clarify the type of love I feel for them. But I'm going to assume that you, my readers, are intelligent enough to distinguish between the real love and the mere infatuation with inanimate objects. ;)
Spread the love, everyone!
