rainy sunday...

Rainy.  That's been our weather for several days now.  I'm not complaining.  We need the rain, not as badly as others, but I'll take it.  Falling asleep with cool air blowing through the windows and the sound of raindrops.  Autumn goodness.

There's been apple desert.  I'm not sure if it should be considered a crumble, a pie or a whatchamacallit.  I used the failed biscuits as the bottom "crust".  Then filled the pan with my Grandmother's Apple Pie filling.  The topping is a sort of crumble.  It is really good, when warmed.

I made the soup that I mentioned two posts ago.  Oh. My. Goodness!  So very delicious!  I didn't have chorizo, so I used a local sausage.  I cut the recipe in half since it's just me.  It is wonderfully delicious and I highly recommend it.  The only thing I will do differently next time (and there will be many next times) is to cut back on the crushed red peppers.  

During a break in the rain this morning, I went out with my camera for a little macro play.  I love getting shots like that.  Seeing those tiny details brought out.  I'm thinking of taking a basic photography class.  With my social anxiety issues, I don't know if it is something I can do, but maybe I can gain the courage to try.

Today is the first day in eight days that I've not taken a walk.  Not a stroll, but a fast paced walk.  Some days when I walk, it is very hard to move and very hard to breathe.  Some days it is better.  I'm proud of myself for going when I get back and feel good that I'm making the effort.  But today...well, I may still make it out there today, but I'm feeling so icky that I just don't know.  Which leads to my feeling bad about myself.  Sort of.  

I've been doing this every day for a few weeks now.  I discovered it via Aine's blog.  It feels good when I say this.  It feels good when I think about it.  And on days like today, when I just can't do something I know I should, I don't feel so bad about myself as I would have in the past.  I don't beat myself up about things like this.  Which is a very good thing.

thanks for stopping by, 
love & blessings

ps...don't forget to take a peek at tonight's full blood moon & eclipse!  I'm hoping the clouds will part here so I can see it. xo

I've made a few "whatchamacallits" in my time too. Everything's good with ice cream!

I'd like to come and eat at your house - your soup and apple thingy looks delicious!
And don't feel bad about yourself for not walking when you really don't feel up to it. Rather, give yourself a big "atta girl" when you do walk. Always remember that you're doing the best you can.
Enjoy the day!
