Thank you hubby for braving the drifts in your truck to get me a zpac when all the roads were technically closed in the valley. I feel much better today, 12 hours into the meds. Now if only the plow would come! This photo on Flickr made my morning and so I thought I’d share a smudge of ink with you today, because next week is going to be awesome! Martha (my mama) is coming back to blog on Monday’s about all things delicious, followed by the launch of Tradeshow Tuesday. Have a fabulous weekend, I know I will once this cold is kicked!
