Set for the Winter (Blog 172)
Today Elaine and I spent most of the day inside as an icy rain fell for much of this January day. But sometimes it is good to spend all day inside, warm by the wood stove, and secure in the knowledge that life is good here with someone I love so much, who even on a cold winter day can make me laugh so much throughout the morning and afternoon.
The day before Elaine had cooked wild turkey breast in our Camp Chef cast iron skillet, and the leftovers were just the thing for two lunchtime sandwiches. Then for dinner, we had omelets, courtesy of our Rhode Island Red hens. Tomorrow, we might have the remaining turkey in a vegetable soup - a pleasant thing to contemplate.
Tonight, a scrabble game is the horizon, and Elaine has already playfully boasted that she will beat me by more than the 125 points she did on Wednesday evening. Again, not much happening but it has been a quite satisfying day nevertheless.
