It was 23 F degrees here, so hubby went to play cards with his buddies and I stayed in with the kiddos. I cooked us roasted beef tips with caramalized onions and red wine, blanched green beans with softened garlic and potato and parsely soup. We ate like piggies and played games and read aloud and then when my little guy went to bed, I started a Downton Abbey marathon interrupted only by my mother's need to watch As Time Goes By and Keeping Up Appearances.

Insomnia is back and I watched way too many episodes of Downton Abbey.

All in all, a nice evening!
