After a few days with Owen's flu—or as he likes to say, INFLUENZA, as he thinks it sounds more impressive—I am feeling marginally better. I am actually sitting up reading and poking around the internet. I know it's super warm out there but I made Ernie build a fire anyway, as it's the same damn temperature in the house. It has not been a pleasant couple of days with aches and pains, exhaustion and dreadful headaches, but hopefully it is on its way out. I have been sick way too much this winter. Ernie doesn't seem to have the flu, er, the influenza, but he's got a bad cold and is being somewhat grumpy, which is his right of course, given how much he does for all of us and always putting up with our grumpiness. Poor sweet pea.
Owen wouldn't share his snapchat with me, but Leo did.
I'm digging through recipes and cookbooks thinking about what to make for our next house concert, because occurred to me that it is ONLY TWO WEEKS AWAY!

potluck at 6, music to follow
I'm thinking of making a vegetable curry or the like. We'll see…something warm and spicy sounds right for them, huh? We love Doug and Telisha so much. They played at our house (with our beloved Paul Griffith) several years ago, and then again one Christmastime with Rod Picott and Amy Speace. Their new album, Galax (which SLHC favorite Fats Kaplin played on) is tremendous. We are so happy they are stopping off on their to way to Folk Alliance. They are the perfect people to blow out any winter blues. Just what I need, and just what I think we all could use!
Thanks to the great Mark Gerking for the poster of course! I love the way the pony and the bass break out of the borders….
