Gloomy and overcast...

A beautiful day!!

  My son just stopped by and is out fishing at the pond. I am awaiting a phone call to shore up a plan, and just finished a bowl of homemade cheese raviolis for breakfast.  Breakfast of Champions.

  I like these rainy days. It isn't exactly raining yet, but a sprinkle here and there and grey sky promises are enough for me.  We are supposed to see rain the next few days in a row. My dogs are AWOL...but the first sign of water falling from the sky and they will shoot home like furry meteors.


  I have tomatoes and onions in the dehydrator that need putting away. Yesterday I sliced almost another gallon of bell peppers and a batch of okra that I over-blanched, I'm afraid...but it will still do for soup. I was thinking I may make some chili tomorrow if the cool weather holds. Today's high is only getting to husband really likes my white chili--that would be good. Means I have to get some ground turkey and some cannelini beans. I need to make a market run anyway, since I'm out of freezer bags. I intend to make a big batch of meatballs too in the next few days, if I can find room in my freezer for them. They're just so darn handy to have

   Need to get the electric bill payment in the mail today and do a few other tedious chores that don't rank real high on my list of fun things. It's outrageous this time, following that month of hell-like temperatures we had here in August.  The air was running 24/7 and we knew it was gonna be ugly.

  Better get myself ready to go out the door. Going in early to sit with my little MissB...she's deathly afraid of storms and her niece is sick today, so won't be going to her house.  

  I am blessed by a life that sits at the door, waiting for me to trust in the abundance and order of the Universe. My freezer is full, my bank account is adequate if I am careful, and my home is full of love.

  It doesn't get any better than that.

You are so right. It doesn't get much better than that. I am so grateful to have come to that place. Most of the time!
