Lots of rain today...

And that is a good thing. I'm tired of sitting outside swatting wasps. I'm getting ready to nest for winter I suppose.

My pot of soup is smelling so good. Thanks Hippychick...for all the special stuff I needed for making a perfect Mennonite soup, and it's all fresh...which makes it so much better. I don't follow the recipes Mennonites use for their soups, I just used the herbs, and fresh beet leaves and sorrel and you can't go wrong. I know my mom was always specific with soup..cabbage borscht needed this herb, and beet leaf borscht needed that one, and potato soup needed ..whatever....I just like to throw the whole thing in a pot and call it a Mennonite Surprise. Heh...and it's hard to surprise a Mennonite...unless you make it nakid. My "Lutheran" (Gord) who put's up with my Mennonite soup ways, is always amicable .... and eats it even if it tastes like shit and says it was good. Lutherans are far too polite. A Mennonite would tell his wife/cook/and mother of his children .. it tasted "funny"....Mennonites have never been known for their tactfulness. We must always speak the truth, even if it hurts the ones you love..heh... as he walks out of the kitchen, farts and belches . To be fair, I am talking old time Mennonites..I haven't been around them for a long time. They may even "dance" now for all I know...not that I would ever want to see that.

Penny Loafer is having a good week. She still is lame, but way more comfortable than before. Could it be that I have twenty of more little doggy beds all over the house? Okay I lied...two more. We had a great weekend and I spoiled the crapolla out of her.

Gord is watching a James Bond movie about 15 feet from me....and my concentration has gone to hell. Bullets are flying, cars are crashing...and now apparently they are trying to drown him...there is more noise in here than yesterday with the guy with the fricking sander...........

Time for supper...and I'm sure the Lutheran will love it.

Soup sounds good to me too. Gustav is doing a little blowing of the wind and rain here and although it's near 'bout 90 degrees out there, it looks like soup weather.

Donna said...

It's so much funnier picturing what you're writing about how close Gord's TV is to where you're writing now that I've seen your place.

Yeah, he's way too fricking close! You need some earplugs, babe.
