It has been a long week, a sad time.  A friend of mine through work passed away last week.  It has been a week of pain, shock and remembrances.  Yesterday I opened a file at work, and there was an email from him.  Today a consultant asked to meet for a wetland review, and he wasn’t there to call and ask to go with me.  He has been such a large part of my life these last 7 years or so and I will really miss working with him, being his friend.  He was so easy to talk to, a real comfort in my life at a time when everything went upside down and then sideways.  I feel terribly for his son, he is only 9 years old.  I met him even, Mark brought him with to work when we met outside to do a simple wetland review a few times.  Mark, I will miss you.

February Blues

Sitting here watching the Food Network, thinking about food.  Today is very cold, it is a whole 7 degrees Fahrenheit right now!  Brrrr  The show I was watching she was making homemade macaroni and cheese and mini-meatloaves and boy did that look good!  What is it about cold weather and craving comfort food?
I have set up my spring vacation finally.  I am going to spend a long weekend in Charleston, South Carolina.  The spring flowers at this time of year are supposed to be fantastic, and with the historical homes and haunted city tours, it just sounded like a fun place to go.  And of course there is the Southern cooking going on which sounds good too.  Definitely something different!  I am going to stay at a resort on the bay, so a little relaxing walking is definitely in order too.  I also like the idea of going to the setting of one of my favorite cozy mystery series, the tea shop series by Laura Childs.
