1. Wow, this week has dragged, even with Monday off!

2. I love learning new trivia. Now, if I could only keep it in my head long enough, I’d be a rock star on Jeopardy.

3. Finally, I’m feeling better after being sick for a few weeks.

4. A cold spell is all right with me. That’s what winter is!

5. Sweet or savory: savory butternut squash soup with chipotle — perfect for a cold day.

6. Loving my black riding boots that are new.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to taking it easy and making some cards; tomorrow my plans include getting my hair cut and colored and going to a wine and beer fest with my brother, sister-in-law and niece; and Sunday, I want to finish up my reading for classes next week!
