looking so much better today

1. We have heat once again. Well done Jack and Jr. I can feel the natural gas bill dropping now that the boiler and its flue are no longer completely clogged with soot.
2. I finished my homework for last week. Finally. All eight discussion posts, two quizzes, seven assignments, one massive test, and three group assignments. There may have been more. I've left my brain someplace and can't remember. But I don't have anything due until Tuesday night. Yes this semester all over the place.
3. We had a big pot of homemade chili with hunks of bread and fresh veggies on the side for dinner tonight. What, I ask you, says autumn and comfort more than a pot of chili in a warm house?

So, so glad that you have water and gas and heat again. And chili. I miss chili. No one else here will eat it.

It's amazing what something as simple as heat can do for your spirits, isn't it?

We tried Jimmy Fallon's chili recipe from the Martha Stewart website. It was a let down. Actually tasted better before the hours in the crock pot.
