The Friday Files



Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you had a productive week.  On Wednesday evening, I attended another Supper With The Authors sponsored by my favorite bookstore, Buttonwood Books and Toys. It's always a guaranteed good time and the attendees are lovely ladies.  I'll fill you in on the details next week.

Last night when I took the dogs out, I felt a twinge in my throat.  You know the twinge - the one that sounds the warning that you are in for a Mother of a cold.  I'm taking my Zicam and gargling with hydrogen peroxide every four hours and hoping for the best.

50 Gift Ideas For Your Sweetheart


Hello, dear friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Ours was a lot of fun.  We went over to our friends' home for a spectacular dinner.  Of course, I took photos and will share them with you at a later date.  We also took in a movie on Sunday.  It was the Mister's choice.  He liked it, me - not so much. 

Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away.  Have you thought about what you will get for your sweetheart?  Or perhaps a sweet little something for yourself?

These are the Mister's favorite jeans.
They are lined in fleece!
