Friday Treat

Congratulations! You’ve made it to the final day of the modern work week!

During my working years, Fridays were important, but did not always signal the end of the week. That’s the thing about working in health care — it’s one of those 24/7 occupations. More than once, when working on a national holiday, I wondered out loud if we could convince people not to have accidents, heart attacks, or babies for a set time so we could take the day off. Hint: It didn’t work.

So you’ve been good — worked all week — want to treat yourself to something special.

Are you hungry yet? This is Black Forest Cake — perhaps you can find one at a bakery on the way home from work. Or some other flavor of cake. Then this evening — prepare your favorite drink, cut a piece of cake, and settle in with a good book. (If you select Comfort Zone you can read why the heroine makes a Black Forest Cake, why, and who she shares the first attempt.)
