So today is cold and now it is rainy and I haven't gone outside today, there is still time this evening for a walk in the rain. I have been cleaning off my desk and I went through my file cabinet and cleaned it out and organized it, something I have needed to do for a long time. My desk is no longer a mountain of junk and hopefully I can keep it that way, at least for a few days.
|one of these is not like the other|
So today I am thankful I made a dent in the paper build up that is in my corner of the house. I am thankful that I have desk space for my computer. I am thankful for my paper shredder which helps me get rid of paper that I really don't want to hold onto anymore. I am thankful that I didn't have to go out in the cold and rain today, I really hate winter. Now I need to go get my potato chowder cooking and get motivated for a walk in the rain tonight, I am on a roll and don't want to stop.
Update: the soup was blah. Both kids tried it and neither liked it. I ate a whole bowl hoping that I would like it more but it was just blah. It may not have been good due to the burnt bacon I sprinkled on top, but regardless the sticky note bookmark has been removed from the food and family magazine that contained the recipe.
On a positive note, we did take a walk after dinner so we are on a 4 day streak of getting outside and moving. Due to the rain and temps in the mid-30s it was a short walk, but getting out was worth layering up and braving the cold.
