Wet, Wet, Wet

This is what today has been like here at the old homestead.

It started raining late this morning and has steadily been coming down since. Right now we are under a rainfall warning with much more of this wet weather heading our way.

I do love rain, but not as much as we are forecast to get. Also the temperature did not get above 12 C for the majority of the day.

All in all the perfect day to stay home, curl up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate!!! Which of course I did after I got most of my to do list done.

With this cool weather I was glad I had chosen to make chili for our dinner tonight.I made an extra big pot and there is enough leftover for two meals for each of us. One portion is residing in the fridge for a meal later this upcoming week. The other portion is in the freezer for a meal one night when I don't feel like cooking, or one day next month. I love having a ready made meal for those days that I get involved with something else.

Still working on my goals for this month. Hopefully I will be able to complete most if not all of them before the end of the month. Wish me luck as I seem to have lost my sewing mojo somewhere this month.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Jackie,
    Your chili looks yummy. Do you put veggies in with your meat and beans?

  2. Gayle, I put onions, celery and finely grated carrot in my chili. I sometimes add a can or two of mushrooms as well.

    God bless.
