It's a good morning

....when by 10:00 a.m. I have e-filed our tax return (refund a-comin--unfortunately it is already all spoken for), taken McKid to preschool, and have soup for supper simmering on the stove.

Last night, Zteen, PapaC and I were all actually HOME AT THE SAME TIME to watch House. We taped The Amazing Race to watch during lunch today. It's also been a good week for homemade suppers, something that must continue into the future as we have financial plans afoot that will call for economizing some.

Monday night was Baked Beef Stew. Last night was cheddar, bell pepper and ham quiche. Tonight is Nine Bean Soup. Zack wants to know "What's up with all the good food?" That tells you how little I cooked while PapaC was on his 3 1/2 month working trip!

Am in the midst of two books--The Bee Season by Myla Goldberg, which has nothing to do with buzzing bees and everything to do with spelling bees and a Jewish family. And The Wisdom and Innocence of G.K. Chesterton by Joseph Pearce. I'll report on them when I've finished.

Oh, and a big THANK YOU to Steven Riddle over at Flos Carmeli, for his recommendation of Kalihari Rooibos red tea. It is what Mma Ramotswe drinks in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books. I brewed a cup last night with a little trepidation--but it is really quite good. It lacks the "bite" that hot tea has. It feels, oh, I don't know, SOFT in your mouth. And it has a very lovely smell. High in anti-oxidants (the package says higher even than green teas), it also has no caffeine. Anyway, I agree with Steven: you should try this if you are a hot drink drinker.

Now it's off to spoil the day by actually having to do some financial work for the parish.


How funny is it that I too am cooking bean soup( 16 here).

And it is a great morning!

I took a class from Joseph Pearce once. He's pretty awesome. And Chesterton, even more so.

Ooh, I hope you will love Bee Season. It is one of my favorites! And I think it was Goldberg's first novel -- amazing. Please report back (I know you will!)
