Chili Time

It looks like winter has finally arrived, so it's chili time at the Ireland casa. I've got some simmering away in the crock pot right now. It was eleven degrees this morning up here on the ridge, with snow and sleet in the forecast over the next few days.

Instead of getting out in the weather, I plan to relax, work on a new quilt design, clean out a closet, enjoy time with my mama, read a murder mystery, and snuggle with my sweetie. 

Useful Notion: The best way to get things done is to simply begin.
