While the snow has been gently falling all day, I've been mending and doing dishes and laundry and making chili.
In between the necessary "to do" list of the day, I was also reading my latest Goudge book and watching a few cooking shows on the PBS Create Channel... either creating or cleaning all day. :)
I really wanted to do some baking today but there was just too much that had to be done which drew me away from the kitchen. How nice it would have been on such a cold and snowy day to have the oven heating and something special available at the end of the day.
Instead I made my husband happy with chili simmering on the back burner when he arrived home this evening after running errands in the snow.
Later this evening or tomorrow, I will watch Emma online. All because the Saints game went into overtime and as much as I wanted to see Emma, I could not leave the football game until it was over.
Once it had become apparent in the football season that Chicago was going nowhere (and fast), we had hoped the Super Bowl this year would be between Indy and New Orleans. Yes!... Midwestern city (Indianapolis) and our favorite quarterback (Drew Brees).
Football is just about the only sport I enjoy watching on TV, with two minor exceptions. I do enjoy watching tennis in the semi-finals and finals, especially men's tennis (keeping an eye on the Australian Open). I have been known to watch part of a golf game in February or March... just to remember what green grass looked like... and sigh for spring.
I'm on my last week of "the month of Goudge" and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll write all about it at the end of the month. Thank you to Sarah and Lanier, both of whom reminded me that I've long wanted to read these books and January is the perfect month to do so.
