In need of a warm respite? Try these photos on for size

I'm in DESPERATE need for rest.  A good, long day of sleeping in and watching movies in bed.  Unfortunately, work waits for no one, and I still haven't begun to feel any relief. Between my awful cold, the long days at work, and the endless walks in the slushy streets of Manhattan, I'm absolutely entitled to a drink!

Here are some photos I took while at the Viktualienmarkt in Munich, Germany.  All of them remind me of a bright day in spring or summer, and the sheer relaxation the warmth brings.  I hope these photos channel this. I'll be needing this desperately as I conquer my FOURTH snowstorm in a week.  Yes that's right, I've been to Toronto, Atlanta and NYC in a week and have been harassed by the snow on FOUR different occasions.  Ouch.
