It has been dreary all day - drizzly, drab, grey. The skies must be clear now because I can see a big yellow moon out the back window. I don't mind gloomy weather too much. I was just happy to have the day off of work today.
Charlie is on his way home from work right now. I have a chicken/mushroom soup concoction in the crock pot and will be making some rice for it as well. I'm not real sure what I'll be having yet - something that goes with rice I suppose. It is sometimes difficult to figure out meals that will work for one omnivore and one herbivore. I usually end up with way too much food sitting in the fridge afterwards. Oh well. I will certainly never complain about over-abundance... especially in today's world.
Oh, and here are those ornaments that I got from Bronner's last weekend (see previous post). I got the fish for Charlie - cause he likes to fish. The pig one is for me -- I don't know why -- I was just drawn to it. In the store Mom scolded me for putting it down after we laughed over how cute it is. Well, I can't make Mom mad, so I bought it. : ) Later I made her buy something she liked as well. As much as I tell myself I want to get rid of a bunch of stuff and downsize and de-clutter I just can't seem to stop buying things. I suppose it is a continual process of changing habits. Anyway, I still think the pig is adorable and I don't regret getting it. Now.... I just need a bigger Christmas tree... LOL.
