Title sounds cozy, doesn't it? Guess it would be if we were at the beginning of
winter and we were delighted with the newness of a fresh snowfall and the wonder
of being cuddled up on the sofa with a good book. But that gets old really quick.
This is what it looked like out my front door this morning. And that was after Brian
had already shoveled at 4:30 a.m. before going to work. Yes, he's an early riser.
He starts work at 7 a.m., has a longish commute, and works out before he starts
his shift. But we were both wide awake at 3:30 this morning anyway. Happens a
lot. Wonder what's up with that? I could blame my insomnia on hormones. Maybe
Brian's going through manopause?!
Snow mountains. Just keep piling it on.
I realized I never showed you all my completed Ikea bookcases in the downstairs
family room. I love them - and so glad we chose the white ones.
I know that by having a basement I'm blessed to have room for all my books.
This isn't even all of them. I have more on the sofa table and upstairs in a couple
more small bookcases. I have books in every room except for the bathrooms!
No, that won't be next.
With all this snow, today's a perfect baking and cooking day. I'm making this recipe
for Cinnamon Swirl Banana bread and tonight's dinner will be Loaded Baked Potato Soup.
I don't have any heavy cream like the recipe calls for, so I'll substitute half and half.
Hope it turns out OK by doing that.
Oh - and I'm feeling perfectly fine now. Why I had a sore throat and headache
and felt so tired for just two days, who knows. I took a natural supplement called
Allibiotic (NOW Foods - has oregano oil, elderberry extract, and olive leaf extract
in it - I swear by this stuff!) and upped my citrus intake. I've been putting fresh
lemon in my water and tea and have been eating several clementines or a
grapefruit every day. I'd like to think all of this is what helped me not to become
truly sick. Anyway, happy Wednesday and stay warm!
