Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Our celebration will be pretty low key because I'll be in yoga class until about 8:30 p.m. We'll have time to do our gift exchange tonight and then enjoy a leisurely meal this weekend in the Upper Peninsula.

We're packing now for 4 days of pancakes for breakfast and cross-country skiing. Yay! We're going up north with another couple and their tough little dog. Temps will be similar to Chicago's, but with 2x the snow and not so many plows. I'm a little worried about the slippery roads and really don't look forward to warming up the house.

One year we all did this (was it last year?), the girls went to wait for a table at the local supper club while the boys drove to the house to shovel the entrance and turn up the heat. On the way back to dinner, the boys skidded through a sharp curve and went off the road and over a small ditch. Fortunately it was all low speed. No one got hurt and we were able to use one car to pull the other car back onto the road. We'll be extra cautious this year. :)

Sorry, but no pics today. There's no light, it's extremely cold, and everything I'm knitting is a secret.

And as always, thanks for thinking of John and asking about him even when you know the news is not so good.
