Valentine's Day

I suppose at some point it was an eventful holiday, but Judy and I did our best to celebrate the day of romance after a long day of work for me, illness for her, and Ciela being her usual stumbling block to romance. We each gave flowers--gerber daisies and alstroemeria for me, origami 20# paper for her. I got chocolates. Judy got soap and Kingsolver's High Tide in Tuscon. More of an inside joke, that last one.

After Ciela went to sleep, we pulled out the champagne flutes from deep in the recesses of the kitchen cabinet, dished out raspberry sorbet and covered them in cheap champagne. Low grade champagne isn't so bad when suffused in melting sorbet. One just has to remember not to pour a second glass after the sorbet is gone.

Sign of the times, we poured 17/20ths of the bottle down the drain and went to sleep early.
