I concluded that winter provides the perfect excuse to not go someplace or do something. So far the things I canceled I absolutely wanted to do. But I can't take a risk of falling again, I do enough damage indoors, or getting into a fender bender, or worse.
It is also prime soup season, and I just adore soup. I usually have about 16 pints in my freezer, but didn't get to make a nice big pot of turkey soup from the Thanksgiving dinner. However, I am enjoying a quick warm and satisfying soup using broth (commercial is fine, as long as it is low sodium), pastina, a handful of fresh baby spinach and topping it with grated cheese and black pepper. It is so yummy and it satisfies the soul.
I also decided that being in a spirit of gratitude was a much better place to be than the complaining one I have been wallowing in. So I am so grateful that I am retired and do not have to venture out. I am grateful for a friend who always checks on me when she is running errands to see if I need anything. I am grateful for my two neighbors, Tony and Gina, who take turns shoveling my walkway. Homeowners doesn't let the shovelers do this. In years past they would ring the bell and ask if we wanted it done for $10. Now they come in the middle of the night.
I realize the winter brings an abundance of blessings that come in various forms.
Finally loaded the Blogger app. This is very restrictive, more so that doing it the other way. No preview, no publish button, I may be typing just for myself. The app barely got 2 1/2 stars.....God provides but not for the iPad. ;-)
Oh, publish button exists, no spell check though.
