Today I woke up at 10, made some coffee and read the sports page. Then Alex and I had breakfast. After that we went for a walk in the park and checked out the birds--woodpeckers, robins and nuthatches abounded. We got back and popped open a half bottle of Veuve Clicquot. Hey, why not? It's Valentine's Day, after all, and with that in mind, we decided to put the work down for a couple hours and enjoy each other's company. I made dinner--a souffle and a nice bottle of red wine. Now I'm going to build a fire in the fireplace and together we'll bask the warmth and comfort of our home on a cold winter night.
And ten Afghani civilians got blown up.
