The weather is gloomy; life is good!


Looked out the window and saw nothing but gray skies in every direction.  Same as yesterday. hmmm  Lots of ways to look at this, if I choose.  Can’t really stomach Pollyanna, just not all that fond of Gloomy Gus either.  Truth is, I love Oscar the Grouch.  It’s not that I’m grouchy all the time.  Oddly, it seems more honest to me than Pollyanna.  And when I see or hear Oscar I laugh.  Simple, right? 

Life is good cause this day has so many possibilities.  Even with gray skies and liquid sunshine.  Soups, stews and homemade bread call to me on days like this.  Life doesn’t get much better.  The smells, the flavors!  Add a batch of cookies and we have reached Nirvana!

Bonus, I have a recording of the 1812 Overture with bells and cannons.  Of all the music in the world I can’t think of anything I like better.  Of course there are lots of other music pieces that are great and even awesome, but, nothing inspires like the 1812 Overture with bells and cannons.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Happy hump day!
