Monday Musing, January 21
Good Monday Morning Lovelies!
I trust you had a good weekend; some of you were bracing for the winter storm here in the US, some of you took time to remember the good words and intentions of Martin Luther King, our friends in Australia are gearing up for Australia Day Celebrations this week, our friends in Scotland are preparing their meals for Burns Night this Friday (in celebration of the Scottish poet Robert Burns) and some of my friends in Kansas City and New Orleans are feeling a tad blue this morning. (Nothing against New England, but it’d be nice to see someone other than them in the Super Bowl…just my 2-cents!)
We had our ‘Game Night’ friends over on Friday night, which truly feeds my soul. We stayed up way too late, so I took a long winter’s nap on Saturday and oversaw our painting crew (yes…they are still here!). Then, we jumped out into the yard on Sunday, before the cold weather arrived, and did a little seasonal cleaning.
Our weather thus far has been seasonal, but on the warm side, so my forsythia has set buds. With our temperatures dropping to the 20’s last night and tonight, I opted to trim some of the forsythia branches, thinking that they would lose their buds in the low temps and in the hopes that I could force them indoors. We’ll see…think it was on the early side, but figured it was worth a chance.

- I love the idea of #JanStewary! I have several different soups frozen, so I’m thawing 3 different ones right now for lunch and dinner tonight. (This is also helping me continue to work down my freezer) When we’ve worked through them, I will make this Hearty Beef Soup or Creamy Tomato Soup (low fat, diary free and gluten free!)
Both great winter-time, feed your mind and body soups.
