Day 24, Today

I really didn't mean to not post for four days while doing this little task.

Things I meant to ponder about:

I listened with some amount of... well, astonishment to a story on NPR about the world leaders getting together to discuss the rules of online warfare, and what would constitute "illegal" moves and what would be "legal," and I couldn't help but ponder the radical thought that, perhaps, ALL war was a bad thing and it floors me, as it has always done, that men have these kind of talks...

I stopped at CostCo this afternoon to pick up my prescription and finally broke down and bought myself a pair of the embroidered capris that had been calling me for a while; I usually don't like capris, but these are very cute and they fit REALLY well! Plus, I finally have a pair of nice sandals that actually fit and look nice, so there it is.

Tonight I wanted to make a chicken soup, so I threw 4 frozen chicken thighs into my pot and started the boiling.

Just before dinner, it looked like this:

Tasted delicious!

4 chicken thighs
Lots of water
Dash (or so) of white wine (Pinot Grigio)
2 carrots, diced
1 cup or so of butter beans (large limas)
Several green onions, chopped
Handful of frozen green peas
Onion powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper, all to taste

Boil until chicken comes off bone (shred) and beans are done.

This is how I cook, generally, so asking me for a recipe is always chancy!

Largely it's because of my big hobbit feet and my inability to wear decent sandals. Thank goodness Skechers started making those "walk fit" ones, with the comfy soles and still very attractive tops!

I didn't start to like my feet until I got rid of the bunions; I still can't grow my nails out because they're so thin and brittle; I have to slather layers of polish on them to keep them intact...!

Well, my heel slips in a lot of shoes, so I understand!

Mmmm, that soup looks yummy. Given that I work from home, I really ought to do things like make soup this winter, huh?

Soup is quick and easy, and always tasty!

(And very good with biscuits!)
