The Perfect Valentine

My Valentine’s Day started on Wednesday afternoon. I received an envelope containing a copy of Nature Friend ( and a check for an article I wrote called “Fairy Jumpers” about oiled penguins. My first paying gig. I am so excited. On Thursday, my husband took a vacation day and we had a day date (both kids at school ). It was fun and relaxing.
I am now about half-way through The Sweet Far Thing (it is 800+ pages). Under normal circumstances, I would probably have just sat up and finished it, but I’m starting to get a head cold, and last night I just wanted to close my and try not to move. Hopefully, the Echinacea, Airborne, vitamin C and zinc will knock it out quickly. I don’t have time to be sick! I have projects to finish and kids to taxi around.
