Feed a cold…soup.

Summer is coming to a close. While I enjoyed the raucousness and general party overdose of the summer, I have to say I am enjoying the calmness that comes with fall. Ask me again in 3 weeks and I will tell you “You are crazy, I would never say that. I am bored”. But as of right now, I am sick with a cold and completely happy to laze about all over my couch doing absolutely nothing. (I would rather be doing this without the illness, but it gives me a good excuse).

This week was choc-full of exciting things such as:

-Going on the internet.
-Doing Laundry.
-Reading Magazines.
-Blowing my nose ALOT.
-Napping.
-Trying not to overdose on NyQuil.
-More napping.

But I think the most exciting part of my week was making homemade soup on Sunday. This always happens in the fall. I get the soup fever. The air is chilly and the leaves are pretty and I need to make soup. Because I wasn’t feeling so good I thought I’d go with a tried and true favourite instead of my usual experimentation. I had most of the ingredients already, and I just had to mope over to the corner store across the street for the remainder. I think I frightened the girl behind the counter with my day-old-makeup/hair/breath. Such is life.

Sunday night turned out to be lovely what with the Ham and Cheese Chowder, the Football and the True Blood season finale. Perfect (almost) fall evening.

Ugly:

All the snot. There’s lots of snot.

Awesome:

Fall-time feeling! (However, I am very excited to go to a cottage next weekend. As much as I love fall, I am hoping the weather warms up a bit for our excursion by the lake.)
