A snowy, chilly, February Saturday…I’ve spent the afternoon snuggling with Fiona (our cocker spaniel) on the couch, drinking hot chocolate–with lots of marshmallows, of course–and reading my new book about the Nazi Occupation of Paris, Les Parisiennes: Resistance, Collaboration, and the Women of Paris Under Nazi Occupation, by Anne Sebba. I love it so far, and highly recommend it, Sebba has an engaging narrative style that truly makes her prose come to life.
I’m looking forward to getting my husband back after tomorrow. He’s a photojournalist with our local NBC affiliate, and Minneapolis is hosting the Super Bowl this year (tomorrow!), so he’s been putting in 12+ hour days for over a week now covering all of the Super Bowl hoopla and festivities downtown. This is going to be the coldest Super Bowl ever (yay Minnesota!) so I imagine there will be lots of (spiked?) hot chocolate consumed tomorrow. 🙂 #SuperBowlLII #SuperBowlLIIMinneapolis #KARE11 #chocolateishealthy #BoldNorth
N.B. I don’t like football. At all. Baseball and hockey are my sports…but I do love my city, and I’m so proud to show it off to the rest of the country!
