Warm deliciousness

I finally found a cure for my coldness, which had taken a hold as soon as I left the house this morning . . .

As I stepped outside to head to work, the crisp air sent me straight back into the house to dress a little warmer for the day ahead. Once I turned the car on it reveled that the temperature was 49 degrees, which instantly gave me the chills.

While I drove to work with heat filling the car, the thought of moving to a colder climate consumed my thoughts. How am I going to handle 20 and 30-degree weather if my body cannot handle the 40s? That thought was instantly answered with warmer clothes, lots of blankets and hopefully a newfound tolerance of cold weather, haha. Many of the apartments and homes we have been looking at include a fireplace, which will be nice to have, another way to keep me warm.

Those thoughts then were instantly erased with . . . I look forward to the colder months every year . . . what are you worried about?

The opportunity to witness seasons once again – winter included, even if that does include snow – is one of the main reasons I am looking forward to our move to Tennessee. It will be fun to experience a new climate.

Although the heat was already warming the office once I arrived, thanks to my thoughtful co-worker, my body and fingers remained cold making it hard to type. As the hours ticked by, the coldness never went away . . . which lead me to the perfect solution . . . soup.

As I took a bite of my first spoonful of warm homemade tomato basil soup from the deli, my body instantly thanked me as I warmed up. I’m always excited to see the soup grace the deli’s website every week because it is the best tomato basil soup in town.

What a wonderful cure, spoonfuls of pure deliciousness.

My cure of course gave me another solution … I will just have to keep the cabinets filled with soup and find recipes to make it from scratch as we go through our first winter in NE Tennessee.
