The next line should be that the fire is so delightful, but I am not making a fire. Though I love central heating and am happy and grateful to have it. Surely our lives are too comfortable.
Tonight will reach down to 1F which is minus 17.2222 Celsius…The old adage that says, “When the days begin to lengthen, the cold begins to strengthen,” is proving true!
And it is ironic that we have all this snow but had none during the school break for Christmas/Winter holidays.
And my refrigerator needs to be cleaned, and this is a great time to make soup! So be it!
A vegetable soup it will be, perhaps a take off on lecso since I have so many little peppers and canned diced tomatoes are good.
Not such a good time for my Kindle to finally die. It has been needing more and more hard resets and now, alas, in the middle of a medieval mystery, it has died. A replacement is on its way!
So I am rereading a favorite D.E. Stevenson, Amberwell. With good soup, and good company (Emily is coming for dinner tonight) and a good book to read before bed, we’ll be really too comfortable during the storm, which is pretty much over, though the cold is not.
