Wave of Berries
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! If you're here in the US, you should get a 3 day weekend. I'm looking forward to having an extra day with Mickael and Caleb, but right now, just this minute, everything is peaceful and quiet. It's cloudy outside, the temperature has dropped and it's lovely and breezy. I'm sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of tea, Ramius is in my lap and Finn is asleep under the table. I'm letting some butter soften on the counter so I can make oatmeal cookies later today and tomorrow I'm going to make a big pot of gumbo. It will be the first time I've made gumbo in this house and Finn will be helping every step of the way (he loves "helping" me make gumbo). It will also be the first time this Fall for the big red pot to make an appearance. I love making soups, stews, chili, and any number of things in the big red pot, but I don't like to make them in the Summer. I know the temperature won't stay cool, yet, but for the next couple of days, it's cool enough to start using the big red pot. Have a great weekend!
