I’ve been in a rainy rut the last few days- our house got “the bug” that has plagued so many people this winter. It was strong enough to knock this normally energetic spark plug right out. I have had many afternoons of cozy clothes and tea to try to kick it back into gear. Now that I’m on the up (I think), I’m taking the time to slow down a little in the mornings on the weekend. Today was french press coffee at the table and browsing cook books from my Grandma. I’ve decided on a bean soup of some sort. Time for some good, warm food, and the mellow show with dogs at my feet. The world will be out there for me to take on next week- I am calling it a home bound weekend this weekend.
