My free time at home is usually spent emailing, listening to music, reading and talking on the phone. I wish I was on the phone less, but I have been fortunate to stay in touch with so many incredible friends.
Wow!!! Friday already. This is a pay week so it means Saturday will be a day spent with shopping and cooking. But I did have a rather pleasant surprise yesterday. I'd forgotten that Monday was a holiday until I saw the fliers up announcing that Monday the office was going to be closed. Talk about elation. Another three day weekend...the second in a row. How great is that? I can bust my butt on Saturday and still have two days to rest.
Hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day. I did. When I arrived home from work I discovered that hubby had cooked me a nice Dominican style dinner--Pernil, gondulas and rice, salad. It was fantastic. I wish he'd do this more often because he is actually quite a good cook. Many years ago he worked in a fancy restaurant in downtown Brooklyn so he knows what he is doing in the kitchen. I know he can chop better than I can. He chops his onions and peppers just like you see the chefs on television do. I've never learned how. What I do is 'slice'.
I asked him not to get me chocolates; I just don't like candy anymore. Wow, does one really outgrow chocolate, I wonder? Besides, Valentine's Day to me is more about love and how important love and compassion is in the world. And with that, I'll end this week with the following verse from the Bible...
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
1 Corinthians 13
Wishing you all a weekend filled with love, joy, and peace. See you on Monday.
