Happy Valentines Day

My darling spouse presented me gifts of homemade knit socks, baked goodies and coffee from a local shop. I decided the coffee shop's packaging's minimalist style was.....minimal. Admittedly one does get the point:

Maybe if one were to add a line or two and a dash of color (or colour if you live in Canada)....

There. Isn't that better? I'll let you know how these beans grind and perform with a pour-over. I'm sure such an offer makes for a cliff hanger and regular followers of the blog will await with rapt anticipation......

In the meantime, hope you find some happiness on this Valentines Day.

Making silly rules

Have you heard that in some states wearing a hoodie will be illegal?
. The Idaho legislature has passed a resolution allowing university students to carry a concealed weapon. I don't think assault weapons have been banned in any state. Yet some states are considering legislation banning the wearing of 'hoodies'. The rationale(irrationale?) goes like: we don't want to make anybody nervous, cause you know how sinister hoodies are. By the way, in Saskatchewan hoodies are called bunny hugs.

Facing mornings...sort of

Wake me when it's spring

 Lately the mornings (although coming earlier) haven't been particularly sunny and that makes me want to hit the snooze and keep on sleeping.
