Gorgeous day today. Still sniffling and coughing a bit, but I seem to have weathered the cold better than last year. Yay for better health. Had blood drawn this morning for my annual cholesterol test. I celebrated that fact tonight by making sauerbraten for dinner, and having dulce de leche ice cream for dessert.

I really only plan to use it for emergencies, and on those odd occasions when I need to make a call on the road. I've always sort of considered it a point of honor that I've never owned one, but there are times when I can see the need.
