Socks and Soup

It’s another dreary day here on Cape Cod. Yesterday I woke to a coating of snow on the ground. Shocking!!! It was actually snow mixed with ice to create a very slick coating on everything. I waited till the afternoon to go to the bank. This morning, no snow but the rain and wind are ripping leaves from all the trees and the front lawn, I so carefully raked last weekend, is covered with two or three layers of old oak and maple leaves. Time to get the mulcher out on Saturday.

So how is one to cheer one’s soul on such a day? Happily, I just bought some new socks from my favorite store, Job Lot – where good things fall off trucks and the shopper gets the deal! -)

I love these new socks. Warm and cozy and colorful too! I got them in green and red and purple and blue. I’m set for the cold winds of winter. Don’t you think they’re stylish? They go with absolutely everything in my wardrobe. 🙂

The other plus to a cold dreary day is a bowl of soup. I was lucky to snag a few cans at a severe discount and stocked up so I have a choice when it comes to lunchtime. Yummmmmm.

Stay warm people. Brother winter is just around the corner. (Of course, you lucky people who live in Florida don’t have to wear socks at all!!! I’m traveling there sometime soon and will trade my socks for sandals! Yahooooeeee. Something to look forward to on such a cold and dreary day.)

Love the socks!!! cozy cozy for the toezies!

However, I would caution you to look at the sodium content of the canned soup — YIKES!

I sip Progresso soups… they do have their share of sodium… but as I have a strong heart and have been eating potato chips most of my life, the salt level is not too critical for my health. Of course, when I fall over faint… well, then I’ll take notice.

Such style…such grace…watch that sodium…how about a crock pot? It makes the whole house smell wonderful. You can make soup in one and decide on how much salt you want to include. Great for chicken soup.

Do crock pots ever burn the food? I’m notorious for that…. I actually prefer a cast iron dutch oven… maybe I’ll get some stew beef or a pot roast for tonite… that will smell fabu.
