I celebrated my first week of work by catching a cold which laid me out Saturday and Sunday, but I'm mending now. The dogs provided much warmth and comfort, except that they couldn't go get me glasses of water, which is the most important piece of fighting a cold.
Kate celebrated my first week of work by chewing the back heel out of my only pair of Mom shoes (to be distinguished from my workout shoes and my plain old work shoes) so I shall have to buy another pair. She got an extra helping of kibble that night, since I was getting kind of bored with them.
My office is right down the road from Balducci's, which can sell wine in MoCo, so Friday a.m. I purchased a bottle of 2005 Montepulciano D'Abruzzo, meaning to blog about it over the weekend, but the cold sandbagged me...I could drink and enjoy but not taste much of anything (except to confirm it didn't taste like Robitussin). Anyway, I can confirm it was good and it was fruity, but any discernment beyond that is beyond me. The good news here is that hey, I'll just have to buy it again!
