The cold is back.
Luckily, we will not be having the horrible weather expected in the Northeast but nonetheless, you have no idea how ready I am for spring to get here.
But since that is still quite a ways off, I might as well enjoy one of the things that comes with cold weather.
A nice warm stew. One that cooks all day and makes the house smell wonderful!
Today, I have nothing on the calendar so I will luckily stay in my comfy knit pants and sweatshirt, go outside only to get the mail, do some laundry and start this stew.
My kind of day.
