Valentine's Day

It was (mostly) a relaxed day. I ran out and picked up breakfast, since I was first up and my car was in the garage and warm, as opposed to Gretchen's van, which was neither of those, given that the temperature was hovering right around zero degrees. I happened to trip over the MLB Network broadcast of the abbreviated version of Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, which is probably not the greatest World Series game ever only because it was not a Game *7*. And there are times when it is nice to know how it ends. :)

Later in the day, we recruited K's assistance and pulled down the majority of the items that had been consigned to the top shelves of our cabinets to be ignored. Gretchen (with a bit of my kibitzing) is sorting out the things we want to keep and the things that we want to get rid of. We found a lovely pair of cobalt blue bottles of Apollo Lager and Apollo Ale (empty, happily) that we had snagged after the Chicon 2000 bid party in San Antonio. Apparently, there is a small collectors market for those, so I suppose I should do something with them.

New TV has arrived for this evening, so we've spent a bit of time watching that.

And it's the fifth anniversary of when Ruby the Dog came to join us, so we spent some time watching her chase the laser pointer, which is her *very* favorite toy. And *very* loud.

It was a lovely, relaxed Valentine's Day.

We needed that.
