The Richland Springs Report

 After a beautiful Saturday spent huddled up with a sinus infection, I sit still huddled up, but the outlook is very different. Russ and I have spent 43 Valentine’s days together. This one didn’t quite go as planned. He had a romantic steak dinner planned for Saturday evening, but I couldn’t even taste the soup I was eating, much less a beautiful  steak. Our dinner will have to be put off for a week or two.
