Chilly this a.m. This is the first morning I had to scrape my windshield! A frosty (but pretty) world out there.
The weekend has come and gone so quickly. Fletch and I decided to postpone our day away until Sunday as Saturday was bitterly cold with high winds. Instead we did the grocery shopping and I picked up my new glasses. That night I fixed a chicken dinner:
This is such a tasty and easy meal to fix: I sauteed garlic, red onion, orange bell pepper, sun dried tomatoes and capers in some EVOO. Added some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and continued cooking. Added some fresh basil near the end.
Sunday did turn out to be a gorgeous day! We headed out around 10:30, going West and then North. We passed some beautiful farmlands and even saw some Amish buggies on the road. We stopped for lunch at a diner and then continued and ended up around Hawk Mountain - a favorite place to hike (but we didn't stop as it was already around 2 p.m.). Basically we have turned into "those Sunday drivers" we used to shake our fists at - lol. It was just so pleasant and for the most part there was not much traffic.
We were home in time to relax before dinner which was vegetable beef soup I had started in the crock pot that morning. Easy peasy.
I am still in the "lack of cowl" phase, but a new sock has been started:
The colors remind me of an Icelandic sweater - black, grey and white. I'm almost to the heel flap of the first sock.
Hope you all enjoyed a fine weekend! And here's to the week ahead.
