I am going to spend the day reading and maybe cooking something good for dinner. There is a chili cook off on Thursday at the Sail and Power Squadron, so I have got to get all the ingredients together. If anyone has some outstanding chili recipes that they would like to share, please send them to me. I am not going to put beans in the chili but will keep it as a true meat based chili. We will cook some corn bread to go with it. I like the kind that has whole kernel corn in the recipe.
I sound like an intense chef from the food network this morning. That's what an ice storm does--makes one think of food, warm fires, and enjoying being home. Tonight is my home group meeting. I am not sure whether I will make the 40 minute drive to get there. That meeting, as I have written before, is held on another island and way out in the country. It is a wonderful drive but probably not the best thing to do if freezing conditions continue.
I am planning on having a moment of silence and meditation this morning at 11 AM. It will be my morning meditation. A moment to just sit in silence and offer prayers for being here, being present, being in recovery and being filled with gratitude.
