February was a short month, but lingering colds for everyone around me and never-ending snow and greyness made it seem so much longer! So my usually cynical self appreciated Valentine’s Day just a bit more, if only for a mid-month riot of red, roses and chocolate.
Preparations for the day: lavender soap wrapped in happy-colored paper and cute ribbon for presents. I was tempted to buy a little craft kit to make a pink stuffed owl for my niece, but I hesitated and then it sold out! So, yes, just left with ribbon for a project for the day.

And last but not least, I’ve been working on a new book project all February (and January, in fact.) I’m turning my parts of NOGOODFORME into a book, complete with a full-fledged Astro-Cinema series (all sun signs now covered) and more…LOADS of new content and “commentary” and the like. It’s great, great fun. Here’s a glimpse below. I’m going to send out a bit of the new stuff I wrote to my newsletter this weekend, so be sure you’re signed up on my list if you want a preview glimpse, and a bit behind-the-scenes 411 on it.
