The weather has been cool but has warmed up into the high 70’s today. I’ve been meaning to start a pot of soup so that’s what I just finished. It’s simmering on the stove. I browned a pound of ground beef, sliced some turkey sausage, added chopped red onion, left-over corn, a can of black beans, a can of chopped tomatoes, a quart of homemade chicken broth and some spices. Sure smells good!
Brad is running errands, picking up the mail and some chopped beef brisket from Hickory House in town. We’re going to divide it up and freeze most of it to help stock the big freezer. In the meantime we have some left-overs from yesterday to finish for a late lunch when he gets home.
The kitchen is clean, dishwasher loaded, time to put my feet up and grab my knitting.
I’ve been taking a break and resting my right wrist for a couple of days, avoiding typing and knitting. The weather settled in my joints and they are finally loosening up. The turmeric is helping, but there isn’t a lot I can do about the weather. Or allergies. Gotta love life in Texas!
We haven’t had any rain to speak of but we have storms on the way later today, through the night and into tomorrow. The temps will start to drop back into the 60’s when the front comes through later. High 70’s and humid isn’t fun so I’m hiding indoors with the A/C on. I stuck my head outdoors earlier and it reminded me of Puerto Rico! Gosh. That’s been a long time. Audrey was pregnant with her first child and I flew out a month before she was due. Lauren will be 25 at the end of April and has two children of her own. That just isn’t possible. Such is life.
Hope your week is progressing nicely and this Lenten season is a good one. I know I’ve benefited from the extra time spent in prayer lately. Have a blessed Thursday afternoon and evening, ya’ll.
