Happy Fat Tuesday!

Happy Fat Tuesday! Above are pictured Paczki (pronounced Poonch-key)'s-- the traditional Polish filled-doughnut served on Fat Tuesday. I picked these up, still hot, Monday night at the local doughnut shop ([town I live in] Donut's). Until I moved states, I had never experienced the deliciousness of a Paczki. This is a day that I can certainly get behind -- Who doesn't like an excuse to eat a doughnut!?! Enjoy your day!

Our "offices".
True to our techie intro... Pete and I each have our own cubicle-type computer set-up. Over the weekend, we added to our set-up's. Pete got a second (and larger) monitor. I got a more comfortable chair. These computers are separated by a transom; this transom used to house sliding doors used to separate the living rooms. The base of the trim on the transom can be seen in the picture of my office on the right.

Cold + Snow = Nap day

Although we've had a few tantalizing glimpses of spring recently, I am reminded today that February is still a winter month. It has been snowing all day. Pete ran an errand this morning, and reported that the road conditions were not good. So, we've had a very relaxing day at home.

The above picture shows our favorite napping spot -- in front of the fireplace, on the two ottomans/leather chairs. Pete is napping there now. Our dog has been dozing on the above chairs. I took a nap in that spot earlier, and woke up feeling supremely relaxed.

Stay warm.

Happy Valentine's Day (belated)

Happy Valentine's day! Here are some little snippets of the day at my house (L : gritty photo-- Fruit & Flowers tea stewing, M- Roses from Pete, R: Angel Food Cake -- served last night @ dinner with strawberries & whipped cream - yum!)

I hope your day was spent with the ones you love!

This weekend we were blest with company again! :) My sister, Jenna, and neice, Jaedon came in town to see my cousin's new daughter and family (her sister-in-law's, and me). It was so fun to see & spend time with these two (and see the others that they came in town to see)! :)
