to make a big pot of chicken soup or...
to bake chocolate chip cookies or...
to curl up in a recliner with a good book, a mug of hot chocolate (with marshmallows) and a green fuzzy blanket or...
to spend the afternoon sewing little pieces of fabric together for a quilt top.
It began snowing late last evening, dropping a couple of inches of heavy, wet snow. South and west of us got enough to warrant either delaying school opening times or closing schools altogether for the day. There are still some flakes floating down, but that should end by this evening.
The soup is already simmering in the crockpot. I don't follow a recipe. This time I tossed in a quart of chicken broth, a pint of canned chicken and some dehydrated vegetables - potato cubes, carrots, cabbage and onions. I usually add a little chicken bouillon for flavor. I'm thinking some cornbread would taste good with the soup for supper.
I don't know how much of my list will get done today. That is one of the nice things about being retired and living alone. I can do what I want when I want. Right now I think my sewing machine is calling my name. When I get enough quilt blocks together to give an idea of what the finished quilt will look like, I will post a picture.
I wonder what it is about falling snow that makes a person want to bake cookies and sew a quilt. Whatever it is, it makes for a pleasant day in my neighborhood.
