At 5 A.M., I was wide awake, and at 5:30 I got up and made my coffee.
The forecast looks bitter, with no temperatures above the teens for the next several days. This sort of winter, of course, only serves to make spring more beautiful when it comes. I'm getting a seed catalogue almost every day now, but I'm tossing them in the trash; I prefer to do my seed-shopping online. Anyway it's a little early to be buying seeds; knowing me, I'd put them away and forget where they are.
My oldest granddaughter, Amber, came yesterday and spent the night. She and I watched an excellent movie I'd recorded on DVR, "Gone Baby Gone". There was lots of profanity in it, and since it was on TNT, substitute words were dubbed in; that took some getting used to, since the dubbed-in words were pretty ridiculous at times.
When Cliff got home, I told him about the excellent movie and ended up watching it again with him. It's a movie that left me thinking about what is right and wrong, and realizing that there are some gray areas after all... not everything is cut and dried. I'd recommend "Gone Baby Gone" to any adult, if you can put up with the bad language.
I won't be cooking black-eyed peas today; that's one of the few foods Cliff detests, right on his list with oysters, yogurt, and turnips.
I'm thinking maybe some of Pioneer Woman's chicken spaghetti would be in order.
