A Bean Soup Sort of Day

January 17th, 2012 at 08:52 am

Yep, it's the day after the long weekend and thankfully the beans have been soaking. I see bean soup in our dinner future. It's going to be a mighty cold week here, and the budget needs some tweaking, especially after reading Patient Saver's Atlantic article.

I've got a list; I've got a plan. I'll finish off class prep today, finish off the laundry, and file my flex spending forms.

I've still got some of my mom's clothes in my home office, and I've been having a hard time parting with them--especially her favorite boiled wool jackets. But I think I have worked through some of my grief with them, and remembering how she always was grateful to the Salvation Army for feeding her and her mom through the depression, they'll go to the Salvation Army thrift shop tomorrow.

    Hugs, too.

    I think that's a good thing to do with them.

    Robin: It's some kind of treated, very dense wool. It's popular in Germany and Austria and thereabouts. Her jackets are LodenFrey and Geiger. I bought them for her years ago and she loved them.
