I think people should use Valentine's day to get their heart checked out. I know, it's been said before, but really, you can't be in love if you're dead.


Today the girlie is sick. Bad fever and a bad cough. She's running around 102.


I'm making this recipe of bubble enchiladas tonight. I added stuff though. Like spices. And onions, bell peppers, black beans and chopped olives. Oh, and I took out the tomato sauce. And I made it with ground beef because, well, I had it. It's baking right now. Hoping it turns out. I also totally ignored the listed measurements and eyeballed it. Smells good anyhow. First time I make a recipe I usually make an effort to follow it. But I couldn't resist making a few alterations.


I didn't see the Grammy's, but I am a fan of Adele and was glad to see she did well. I did, this a.m., see a small outtake of her interview on 60 Minutes. I adore her accent. And I adore her attitude. OMG. Andersen Cooper asked her about if she felt pressured to look thinner like other pop stars. She said, oh no. I like to listen to them, but I don't watch their videos. Who wants to look like a singing slut? (or something to that effect, but I'm fairly certain she used the word slut.) She's clearly outspoken. I wish I'd seen the whole interview.


I did something in Blood Winter. It . . . startled me. I'm not sure what will happen as a result. I'm not sure readers won't kill me if I leave it as is.


Wandering off to check dinner now.

Kanani how'd dinner turn out?

Diana Francis It was amazing, really. So good. The enchilada sauce turned out to be a bit spicy for the kids, so next time I'll have to unspicy it a bit, but it really was delicious. I'm glad I made the changes. The rest of the family really liked it too.

Kanani it totally looks like something my family would love, except for the part where there's an oven. our oven broke months ago and it killed us all a little when there was no more more freshly baked bread or made-from-scratch pizza. not made by me, of course, but my husband. still, i'd try this

Diana Francis uh oh! no oven is terrible! *sympathies* three years ago we remodeled our kitchen and I was cooking in the camp trailer for months (until it got to -30 in which case, Subway, the toaster and granola bars became our good friends).
