    1. Today is Lupercalia.
    2. I don't like that as I've grown up I've gotten lazier about some things.
    3. I'm still struggling to live in the moment.
    4. When you're nauseous you really don't want to live in the moment.
    5. No dinner out of us tonight.
    6. Instead we'll be having Valentine's Day burritos.
    7. I got Hubby a card but forgot to put it out last night.
    8. How can you become less lazy when you have less energy?
    9. I saw a picture of a squirrel tongue a few minutes ago.
    10. It made me smile.

    1) Happy Valentine's Day, including you JNA, you ol' humbug!
    2) LP will abstain from posting during Lent: the woman has willpower to spare.
    3) Today's breakfast was Samuel Rosen's Jewish Rye toasted with whipped butter. My favorite.
    4) Our lawsuit against the County has a new attorney. Consider me a happy planning director.
    5) Lots on the agenda for this month's planning commission meeting...
    6) Which happens to be the same night as my Hoosiers v. Sparty in the Izzone
    7) I'll be recording that one for sure.
    8) Forgot to take Zyrtec this morning. My nose is running like a diesel.
    9) My son's pack are heading out after school for Valentine's. This is a first, but apparently his object of desire is amongst those going....
    10) Is there any bureaucracy more obstinate than a railroad? Not in my experience...

    1. School is out tomorrow and Monday for "mid-winter break"

    2. I think I surprised a few people when I showed up at work.
    3. I didn't tell those folks why I cancelled my surgery.

    6. Poor doggies have not been getting enough exercise.
    7. There are some domesticated bunnies that some jerk released in our neighborhood.
    8. New renters moved in across the street. I don't like them already.

    10. They have a long driveway but they both park in the street.

    #7 sounds like a solution for #6.

    ACK! The horrors! Actually, when we walk by the bunnies the dogs don't seem to be too interested. Granted they are on leashes and under my control (HAHHAHAHAHAHA). I'm sure it would be a different story if they were free range and encountered free range bunnies.



    Growing up our family dog happened upon a den of baby bunnies. There were no bunny survivors.

    At least it wasn't a den of baby skunks...?

    I missed Ten Things Thursday, but today feels like Twenty Thirty Fifty Things Friday (I know, it doesn't have quite the same ring to it). There just aren't enough hours in my day anymore.

    1. Ever notice how some milk chocolate tastes quite yummy and other milk chocolate tastes 'plastic'? (think Hershey bar vs those cheap foil wrapped chocolate easter eggs)
    2. I find Lindt 85% dark chocolate goes a bit too far in the bitterness department to be considered yummy, but 70% is keen
    3. I just used 'keen' in a sentence! It's fun to occasionally throw outdated slang into one's speech
    4. Getting over a really bad cold but I think I am finally feeling well enough to try drinking some beer tonight
    5. I've said it before but it will be nice when LP returns to the FAC, the ecology of the place is affected by her absence
    6. two more weeks and I hope to set up the little greenhouse and start the peas and spinach!
    7. If civilization were to end and it was up to me to reconstruct it, many things would be lost. Among them would be the secret of how to manufacture felt-tipped pens.
    8. For some reason Junior doubts the existence of the Easter Bunny but believes fervently in Santa. Wonder why?
    9. Chili sounds good for dinner
    10. Never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do once you find them

    4) I think Bailey has dementia.
    5) Reminder: dog food, pop, rolls.
