I’m feeling so much better! 😀 I’m not 100% quite yet, but my fever is gone and my energy level is almost back to normal. I still have a runny nose, but the head-cold pressure is mostly gone. An early bedtime is on the agenda for tonight, so hopefully, some quality rest will help me make a full recovery by tomorrow.

The BEAUTIFUL weather also made me feel much better! :mrgreen:


When Mal got home from work, we took Murph for a long walk around the neighborhood. We walked and talked and soaked in the sunshine. It was nice.


Gorgeous weather obviously calls for flip-flops! 😎



Mal and I worked up an appetite after walking with Murphy for more than an hour, so we headed to Finian’s for dinner.

Finian’s has been on my “Need to Try” list for years now. Everyone who I have talked to about this restaurant has raved about it, so I was excited when Mal suggested it for dinner tonight.


Finian’s is a restaurant and pub with an “old-fashioned” vibe. You won’t find funky entrees or trendy cocktails, but Finian’s serves up some quality, homestyle food.

Tonight, the dinner crowd seemed to be mostly families and retirees. Mal and I were easily the youngest adults in the whole place– although, we felt totally welcome! Finian’s has an extensive menu of mostly American-style, comfort food at very reasonable prices.


Our meal started with dinner rolls and corn bread muffins. I ate one of the corn bread muffins and Mal ate the rest!


After we ordered our food, Mal and I filled out our brackets for March Madness. This year, we’ve decided to strategically diversify our efforts so maybe we can win some money!


For dinner, I ordered the salmon salad (in honor of last Friday’s “For the Health of It” event 😉 ). The salmon was very tasty with a buttery, herb-crusted seasoning on the outside. It was tender and “meaty.” I ate every last bite of it!


I was pretty impressed when this salad was served to the table. It was huge, but also packed with veggies– tons of tomatoes, red and green bell peppers, red onions, and sauteed onions.



Now, Mal and I are watching American Idol and eating ice cream. Aren’t you suppose to feed a cold? 😉


Enjoy the evening, blog friends! Normal blogging to resume tomorrow.

G’night! :mrgreen:
