Now I MUST find a copy of the Kite Runner (another book by Hosseini - probably more well-known) -- I can't hardly stand to think that it might be as good as this one :-)

A friend at work introduced me to this beautiful song last week and I can't get it out of my head. It is certainly thought-provoking. Let me know what you think! (And if this even works...my first attempt at posting a video!) Oh, it's called "Albertine" - by Brooke Fraser.

Feeling completely spoiled, I decided to return a little of the favor on Saturday and cooked Dan a meal I knew he'd love: Steak (which we never have), garlic mashed potatoes (complete with 4 heads of roasted garlic), some yummy vegetables (zucchini & egg plant), and some sourdough garlic bread.
Oh, and I topped it off with a chocolate pie! He was one very happy boy :-)
So there you have it - our Valentine's Day extravaganza(s)! It's been a lovely weekend, and I'm so thankful to have had 5 wonderful Valentine's Days with Danny boy...here's to a whole lot more!

Honestly, I really do appreciate the slow times here at GMA as the crazy-busy season is quickly approaching. From about mid-March through mid-August, it will be pretty non-stop around here as we prepare for GMA Music Week, BreakThrough '08 (a simulcast event), and GMA Music in the Rockies. Then you will probably read blogs (if I even have time to blog) about how the clock hands must be on crack because I can't possibly imagine how a whole day has passed and my to-do list has only grown.
But for now, I'll try to enjoy the peaceful afternoons when I have some spare time to check my blog and search for new recipes (a weird way to pass the time maybe, but Dan enjoys it!).
Speaking of recipes, I tried a new one this morning - Curried Chicken. Dan loves to try all sorts of different ethnic dishes and frequently suggests that I try fixing some random cuisine I generally can't pronounce, so I thought this one was worth a shot. It took me all of about 10 minutes to throw together in the crockpot, so we'll see how it turns out!
Okay, it's 5:01 now...thanks for helping me pass a few minutes. What do you do at work to pass the time? (Not that you'd ever be bored at work...but theoretically, if you were...)

If you think of it, please be in prayer for the families who lost loved ones and homes last night - this storm really caused some devastation.
