A safe "race" back to Maryland from Ohio last night was just the ticket considering all the inclement weather facing many locales (even snow in Texas!). As we all quickly unpacked the car, played and petted the dogs and let the house "heat" up a bit, we were all a little more tired than usual and hit the hay within an hour knowing we could all sleep in and let the rain and sleet hit against the windowpanes all night and day. I think we all slept like bears because we put in an 12 hours of straight sleep (I did happen to let the dogs out two times though) and never felt better after all that rest. And, of course, I was sleeping on those "17 hour" flannel sheets I love so much....
Watching movies after a great meal of salmon, squash and salad rounded out this cold grey and rainy day. I'm thankful for the warmth of a kitchen of filled with the aroma of lemon pepper seasoning on the salmon!
