There was a MONSTER snow storm heading for Long Island on Tuesday night. So I put a bottle of champagne out in the backyard. For the obvious reasons:
(Wednesday morning): …because there is nothing like Eastern Seaboard Blizzard-chilled champagne on a SNOW DAY.
It snowed all day Wednesday and, judging by my Champagne-O-Meter, we got about a foot of snow.
I made scones for my 4 o’clock tea. “Scones”, as you may know, is an old Scottish word for “Edible Brick of Flour and Butter”. And yes, that’s quince jelly. I take an hour every day to watch Judge Judy, and I like to get cozy when I watch Judge Judy let rip. But all that comfort food went for naught: Channel 2, the Judge Judy channel, had a ONE HOUR Live coverage Special Program about the blizzard. Good thing I had that champagne as back-up.
Here’s my little Valentine to you all — I hope you all enjoy a packet of hearts and flowers, a nice cup of tea, and a romantic Winter sun set.
And I hope you all have a bottle of champagne hidden in the snow drifts for this weekend.
