Valentine's Day, again

 My Valentine's Day was not all about demonstrating in Hartford.  That evening I went to a Michael Bolton benefit concert in Ridgefield with a few friends.  I've never been a huge fan, but I bought a ticket from a friend who got sick and was unable to attend.  He put on a very good show and it was a pleasant way to round out the day.

Everyone got a beautiful long stemmed rose to take home.

We awoke this morning to more snow, nothing like the huge blizzard of last weekend, but just enough to make it look pretty. My son gave me this twirly garden ornament for Christmas a few years ago. When it turns in the wind, it has the optical illusionof that blue glass ball going up and down the spiral. I really like the way it looks covered in snow, which will be gone as soon as the sun comes out.

I never did write about the big blizzard.  Here in Danbury we only got 20.5 inches. I know that is a lot, but it pales in comparison to some towns that got 30" or 40".  We were all cleaned out in two days, but other cities and towns were still not all dug out by Friday.  Those kids will be going to school  until July considering all the snow days they have had.

I spent last weekend in the house because of the snow and a nasty head cold I had picked up somewhere.  I thought it was all gone, but now it has come back with a vengeance, or maybe it's a new one altogether.  So once again I am hunkered down, hoping to get some good studio time between all the nose blowing.  Yuck!

Ha! This is when I appreciate living in Tunisia--no snow. Really liked your "heart strings" quilt. It's an interesting expression to work with. Get well soon!
best, nadia

Hope You're feeling better soon! I get the impression from your blog that if the children miss school because of snow days they have to be tagged on the end of the school year - if this is the case what a good idea. In England everyone was up in arms because so many schools closed but we had very little snow (it just seemed like a good excuse, or am I just getting old?)
