I also love the touchscreen...I am very impressed with it
I'm excited for you, Kylie! I love all the features of the Paperwhite too. Did Steve get one as well?

We don't do valentines day either. It's hard to do when every day is valentines day. We decided years ago that it was more important to do nice things every day instead of making a fuss on one day only.

Thanks DL

Steve didnt get one for himself, he bought the new one for me as he knew I really wanted the white background and he said he wasnt too fussed and that he would stick with his current Kindle....

But I am going to get him one for his birthday, which is on St Patricks Day

I can never think of what to get him, he is so hard to buy for...so this has given me an easy time of it

He said he will love to get one for his birthday afterall

I am getting ready to start making our "special dinner". It just happens to be the day after Valentine's but it is only a coincidence. I always make something fancier one day on the weekend. We usually work together on the planning, the cooking or both. But I am flying solo today! Details will be in the dinner thread.

I'm having a nice cup of tea on a cold night. Waiting for Hubby to get home to put the pizza in the oven. We are going to watch a movie tonight after supper. The new James Bond movie: Skyfall.

How are you holding up?
Coca Cola and water? Not ginger ale?
Is she better today?

I'm looking out the window at the nice sunny day and just finished my cup of coffee. We were supposed to have 3-6 inches of snow this morning. It obviously missed me and it's absolutely gorgeous out. I think I will go out.

I am getting ready to go out and do a drive-by / check out a place where I have a job interview next week. I must be crazy. Then get a haircut. I retired early 5 years ago. I must be crazy thinking there are still plenty of people who actually are looking for work. I stumbled on this one by accident. Light office work, some data mgmt part time for a cabinet maker / woodworking company. We'll see....

i'm ok. got a good night's sleep for once. i actually have 2 days off this weekend! woohoo! it's been months since i've had 2 consecutive days off.
dw says she feels like she got hit by a truck. i told her to call the place where she got the bad food (broccoli rabe in garlic oil). not necessarily to complain since she's friends with them, but to tell them to check their oil to see if it's gone rancid.
and yeah, we like coca cola for tummy ills, ginger ale for a fever.
