Yesterday was one of those days where I just didn’t feel like leaving the house. My primary goal was to publish my third book and get caught up on the house-work. Then it started to snow about mid-afternoon, my husband lit a fire in the fireplace and that pretty much did it for me. I successfully published my book – the house-work? Yeah, that could wait! The combination of the beautiful snow, falling gracefully outside my window and the warm, crackling fire, set the mood for a hearty soup for dinner. So I headed for the kitchen and started to cook.
