That's right, no great thoughts or ideas bouncing off the walls of my cranium. A day where I seem to be content with my life, my surroundings, and I have nothing to truly think about. These kind of days are rare, and when they come around I, at first, feel a bit lost. Me, the one that is always doing something, today has nothing to do that can't wait for another day. Laundry...done. Meals cooked...done. Mail sorted, bills paid, papers filed...done. Snow shoveled; that is Roy's job, so I don't care. Staring out the window and daydreaming; Ha!!! I've been doing that almost all day, and liking it.
So today's post is going to be very short, for I have daydreaming to do. I will, however, leave you with a recipe that will give you plenty of time to do some daydreaming of your own. Enjoy!
