I also made a new soup yesterday and so far I think it is my favorite.
This is the recipe I used as a guide. I used hot Italian sausage and took it out of the skin. I didn't have zucchini or spinach and used a bit more beef broth and a little larger jar of great Northern beans. YUMMY!!
I also had my little Miss Z from Friday afternoon until Saturday afternoon. She is such a delight, but so busy these days. She is into everything. She still isn't actually crawling, more like creeping, pulling herself along, but she is fast!!
She looks so much like her big sister, Miss K. The bib says "Will Smile for Food". And I think she earned every bit I fed her!!
It is my Mom's 87th birthday today. This is the first time since Dad died in 1994 that I am not there to celebrate with her. I made my trip early this month before the hubster's surgery to make up for my absence on her actual day. She will have lots of company and a zillion phone calls and I am sure she will have a great day.
I am going to try to work a bit on the new barn watercolor and may try adding a bit to the Adirondack chairs as well. I may go into Jackson later today to watch Miss M at ballet class. She called me last evening to invite me to come. I could do the recycling while I am in the neighborhood.
It is a beautiful morning here and I am full of energy. I think the treadmill needs a good workout today as do I.
I hope you are having a great day and that you will make some time for yourself and your artistic endeavors.
