Today I am thankful for . . .
787. The gift of My One and Only Brother, S. It's his birthday today:)
788. The gift of Laundry Completely Done before Saturday arrives. Usually my laundry is done from Friday to Saturday, but this week I got a head-start on it, which leaves more room for Saturday fun.
789. The gift of A Beautiful Fall Day. Now, if only I could get out there and deal with all the dying plants and flowers . . . .
790. The gift of Cream of Leek Soup. Yesterday I was in Safeway with Ty, getting some produce items, and he spotted leeks. He asked me what they were, so I told him. He said he'd like to try them, so I decided to try making soup with the leeks. Yowzers! I think it was the best soup I've ever made, tied for first with chicken-lemon-rice soup.
