an indoor day

The North wind is raging, leaves and dust are everywhere, I am sneezing and coughing. I did go out for a walk this morning with Gina and the two dogs but it was nasty. It's going to be an indoor day. And there's plenty to do. My cupboards are still a mystery; can't find anything in the kitchen. An indoor day is a good opportunity to haul everything out and start over. Ditto the clothes closets. I stored things in the guest room and haven't had the energy to go in there and root around for a lost T-shirt. But daughter Caitlin is coming next Sunday for a couple of days and I must make room for her extensive travel wardrobe (usually a T-shirt and pair of jeans!) In addition to her, there's a possibility grandson Andrew and his girlfriend Anna will drive up from Berkeley when he is there helping her pack up her possessions from her first year at UCB. Now if I could just manage to get Alex and Em here at the same time life would be perfect.

Another good indoor activity ~ aside from rearranging, reading, napping, or watching a DVD ~ is cooking. The Patient has made a glorious big pot of leek and potato soup from a recipe at Pinch my Salt.

That will take care of lunch. Then someone is going to have to bust out of here and go to the market to shop for dinner. We'll draw straws.
