Faithful Readers, I write to you today from my favorite spot to blog from, with a full belly, and a relaxed heart.
Relaxation doesn’t happen very often, so I’m going to revel in the moment a bit. I don’t often have a Sunday to myself. Either I’m working, or spending the day with my parents. Both of those activities are great, but to have a day just for me is really a treat.
Where’s The Flirt today? He took me out to breakfast at Ebeneezers (best breakfast in town!) and then went hunting. So, when I say I have the house to myself, I really have the whole thing to myself.
Mom text me last night and said not to come to their place today. We had lots of rain, and then we got snow on top of that. Yesterday, I went out to run some errands, and when I got out of my car, I slid all the rest of the way down the parking lot toward the road. Not good! I managed to stay out of the road, and was able to get up to the business and back down to my car without falling, but it was a little scary. I’m content to sit home today.
The ice played havoc with the roads, but it did some fun things in my yard:
The way the ice covers everything is so beautiful. Dangerous, but beautiful.
Today, I will putter around the house. I do have things that need to be done, but there are also things that I just want to tinker with. We will see what gets done. When I get hungry, I have plenty of leftovers to pick from. My favorite, though, is well buttered lefse with ham rolled up inside.
Lefse is a Norwegian flat bread made from potatoes. It’s also my favorite thing at Thanksgiving. I found Aunty B’s recipe, and I think I will try to make it sometime. I just need more countertop space. Rolling lefse takes a little bit of elbow room. More about that later.
Well, now the puttering will commence. I look forward to a nice quite day of everything I feel like doing, and maybe not much at all.
Here’s wishing you all a nice quite day, to fill (or not) in whatever way that pleases you and feeds your soul. Blessings all!
