It's gray. It's dismal. It's been raining steadily all day.
Now at only four o'clock, it's looking like dusk is approaching quickly. Inside the house it could hardly be more comfortable and cozy. It's a great day.
Lucky, lucky us to be able to enjoy a day like this so close to home and hearth. I must admit I've been thinking of curling up on the couch and watching a DVD (or three) ever since finishing breakfast this morning. (What weather could be more conducive to that than this which we're currently having?) But I haven't quite made it yet.
I baked a batch of blueberry/raspberry muffins before breakfast this morning, then got the laundry started. Made a big pot of potato soup for lunch. Lots left over for a couple more meals this week.
Got thawed venison from the freezer browned and then simmering on the stove with seasonings for Swiss Steak for dinner. Combined with mashed potatoes, gravy and Brussels sprouts, we will have a tasty meal tonight. (The slow cooking meat is making the house smell pretty darn good all afternoon, too.)
Both hubby and I have gotten a little damp when going outside to do what needed to be done at one time or another today, but fortunately we've dried out quickly and it hasn't kept us from enjoying this lovely November day. It doesn't have to be sunny to be a good day.
Now. Wonder if I can get in half a movie before dinner time? The couch and quilt are calling me . . .
