Hearts, Mr. Collins!

On this Saint Valentine's Day (and Quinquagesima) Sunday cards and flowers, chocolates, hugs and kisses have been shared in abundance. Our family has spent the morning playing, appropriately, Hearts. It's a fun card game, the basics of which are easily understood by the boys, while the adults can strategize to improve their scores. Still, my one gallant effort to 'shoot the moon' was foiled by my 8 year old, so we were all on a pretty level playing field! And more than once we quoted Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (in our best British accents, of course!) when the suit changed to hearts.

We have a fresh blanket of snow on the ground, but it has not been falling all day as was predicted. We will head out to the 3:00 pm Mass this afternoon and it would appear, at least right now, that we won't have any trouble on the roads.

Happy Saint Valentine's Day to all my dear readers!

Saint Valentine, Pray for Us!
