It is chilly outside, but the wind that has plagued us of late has gone. The sky looks gloomy, and rain may appear today. Inside, it is warm. I shall remain inside.

I produced a large pot of soup for dinner last evening. I simmered two sliced medium onions, three tablespoons of minced garlic, three sliced celery stalks, three diced Jalapeños, three diced medium yellow squash, two diced medium cluster tomatoes, one cup of brown rice, and a diced chicken breast in water, Chardonnay, chicken stock, sea salt, ground black pepper, and poultry seasoning. This simmered for four and a half hours. We enjoyed it after Bible class at Harvest Christian Center. There was a quantity of soup remaining following our dinner. It now resides in the freezer and shall be enjoyed at a future meal.
