I went for my usual morning run, and was delighted to find that it was almost 60 degrees. Aside from a strong wind over the last half mile, it felt like a Spring day.
Not your typical November day.
I walked to the library and was delighted to find the new book from one of my favorite authors waiting for me on the shelf. Nice.
I started the laundry, changed the litter boxes, and did some serious cleaning to the downstairs level of this massive house.
Of course, I might have also caused an international incident by fighting with the Sweet Irish Girl, but it looks like peace has been restored, and Irish/American relations are as great as they’ve always been.
Once my diplomatic mission was completed, I got down to the serious business of the day:
So The House on the Hill is cleaner than usual, it smells like chili, and I’m watching Notre Dame, the #5 team in the nation, play Pitt.
And there are photos…
Of course, I always just make it up as I go along, so I didn’t write down what went into that last pot. I did remember, however, that I added baked beans, mushrooms, pepperoni, and onion so those items were all on hand today.
It was the perfect football food, and, yes, I ate it all.
While the score was 14-3 at the time this photo was taken, it is now 21-3.
Yes, I clearly have a soft spot for all things Irish.
The Force is strong with Notre Dame, as is the Luck of the Irish.
Chili, football, Star Wars, and a Sweet Irish Girl never far from my thoughts. This Modern Philosopher is certainly living the American Dream.
Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday!
