Valentine's Day

It is St. Valentine's Day. I am sitting on the couch in the living room. At the other end of the room, Kim and Fiona are watching Glee. Wesley, our big fluffy dog, is going between us, looking for someone to play with. He grabs chew toys, bones, anything he thinks will get our attention. Avery, the neighbors' dog has been out of town for a few days, and Wesley is looking for someone to play with.

For dinner, we had duck. We usually have duck for Valentine's Day. However, Kim had a long day at work, and so instead of roasting a duck, she picked up duck pieces which were easier to prepare. For dessert, we had chocolates. Connecticut is a great state for Chocolates. I brought home chocolates from Tschudin Chocolates in Middletown. They are one of the best, designer chocolates you can find. Kim brought home chocolates from Bridgewater Chocolates, another top designer chocolateer in Connecticut.

I pause briefly to watch Mercedes cover Whitney Houston's signature, “I Will Always Love You.” I check Twitter and various news stories about Glee and find people are switching between Glee and the Westminster Dog Show.

It's been a long day and so I'll post this simple Valentine's Day tribute and save my more serious blog posts for another day.
