Today looks like this and it makes my little heart sing with contentment!! What a wonderful, beautiful way to start off October.
It held off while the boys and I ran to the store this morning. But about 30 minutes after we got back it started sprinkling, then drizzling, the pouring! It has now, 4 hours later, stopped but I so hope it starts up again and we have rain for days.
We have been so, so busy lately. I don't think I've been home for more than a day in the last week. Between doctor's appointments, getting apples, grocery shopping, and people coming to visit it's been a whirlwind.
Do you notice your desires to do things change with the seasons? For me I go crazy about cleaning in the spring. Today's weather though, puts me happily in the kitchen.
This morning was 7 quarts of chicken stock and the whole chicken from it that is now shredded for future meals, a batch of rice for tonight's dinner, and two loaves of bread. This afternoon will be Chili Verde sauce for tomorrow's dinner and if I can get to it, tomato sauce for Friday. I'll be busy the next few days so planning ahead it is! Maybe next week I can be home for more than a day. :)
You know what else this weather means?
Happy Stormy Day!
