Happy Friday, friends! And Happy Chinese New Year! We will celebrate tonight with some delicious takeout from one of our favorite places in town. Although I usually get some beef with broccoli, I am thinking of sesame chicken tonight. And an eggroll. And maybe some wonton soup. Can you tell I haven't eaten my breakfast yet today?? The remainder of this cold February weekend will include preparing for and celebrating Valentine's Day, which I strongly suspect is a commercial ploy to get people to buy expensive cards and gifts in an attempt to relay feelings of love that can be conveyed just as strongly with a home-cooked meal and a handwritten note, but that I happily celebrate every year with chocolate because it is a holiday, right? But I do tell Steve that I know he loves me. I don't need him to give Hallmark money to let me know. I am lacking in the romance department, I know.
In other news, the pups got treated at the groomer and look fresh and smell clean. Little Mocha loves to go and doesn't even bark when I leave her with Alyssa, but the excitement clearly wears her out! Kirby takes it all in stride, as usual. He takes his role as big brother quite seriously. Peyton made cupcakes that were as delicious as they were cute. And I planned a little brunch for my people to celebrate the special day of hearts and love. I am thinking scrambled eggs, bacon, coffee cake, fruit, juice, and coffee. And then a nap.
Have a cozy weekend filled with lots of love, my friends.
Thanks for visiting!
