I will be celebrating my birthday longer than one day because this is Monday (a) and I can (b, final answer.) Today I made a real, solid, home cooked meal for the first time in weeks, a largeish batch of beef vegetable soup with added smoked ham hocks just because. (Approximately 2 and a bit pounds of beef and about 1 pound of the pork.) Onions, celery, carrots, corn, tomatoes, green chilis, green Bell pepper, mushrooms. I've had it twice today. Yum. Yesterday I finished dealing with the loose yarn ends inside the Birthday Socks (back a post or so) and put them on at daylight today, very happy. I took a nap after getting the soup going well.
We are trundling along, awaiting the predicted storms and rain. It was very humid today, but aside from some sprinkles we had no actual rain. Lots of wind, though.
