Wednesday's child is full

[Garden Gnome, among the green beans and zinnias]

Hope that title sounds as funny to you as it feels to me.

Oh, well.

It is cold as the dickens out there and there is a severe weather advisory out because of the temps. They are closing the schools tomorrow and everything. I am just blessed to have my furnace fixed and a warm house to hole up in. My doggies just went out to go potty and 10 to 1 they don't stay out there any longer than necessary. Wait--there it is. I heard the Jack Russell Terrorist bark her nightime squeak-bark at the door. (Quietly, as not to wake daddy). *grin Be right back....

Tomorrow I'm going to make a big pot of French Onion Soup, and some rosemary garlic bread to go with it. It will be a good day for soup making, I suspect. And every day is a good day for the intoxicating smell of yeast bread with garlic in it. I make an excellent vegetarian version of the soup that is to die for. It will be the first recipe on my new blog. Hopefully accompanied by pictures.

I feel like I need some hot tea tonight. I still have to make hubby's breakfast and lunch, so I'll put the blue enamel tea kettle on and get those things done while I wait for the kettle to boil. I have a grand selection of teas...from my homegrown peppermint and spearmint to Lapsong Souschong to Rooiboos to Irish Breakfast Tea to chamomile. And some others too. Greens and whites and black teas. I even have several Yogi Teas that are for particular reasons, like Detox Tea and a women's hormonal balance and throat coat and a tea that is a coffee substitute. And after tea, I'll go to bed. I'm tired, having been up since 5, and I really didn't mean to stay up this late...

I am flinging prayers about the Universe for whomever needs them. That all of the people on the planet have some peace in their lives, and full stomachs, and a pillow to lie their heads on and someone to love them all up. For good health and dry quarters, for sweet dreams and loving hearts. For a sense of purpose and usefulness and the sense to go slowly and appreciate the world around us.

And that, as they say, is the end of the story.

New blog? Recipes? Pictures? It all sounds wonderful. Anytime we're talking about food, I'm all ears. :)
