Today is cold and rainy in Austin TX. I had a stressful dream that woke me up at 0630 and I couldn't get back to sleep. I decided that banana muffins would be the remedy. As I pulled them out of the oven, Joe Walsh came on the radio reminding me "Life's been good to me so far..." I realized God was speaking to me. Even though I don't have a Maserati that does 185, I do have a lot more than a lot of other people.
So, today I'm thankful for everything I have, including these $1.29 package banana muffins, and the fact that I can enjoy them with a nice cup of coffee; warm and dry in my own place with my two beautiful dogs. (They were pretty darn good muffins, too!)
I made another soup for the cold weather. It came out decent. I panicked and added some extra water, because I thought I had too many beans. Now the soup is a bit thin and watery. I should've stuck with my instincts—two quarts, no more.
Normally, the water level us 2-3 inches below the dam, and it can be crossed without getting your shoes wet. The waterfall on the side is about three times larger than normal. It looked quite impressive!
