Cool weather = soup and cooking in the oven. This is a Really Good Thing. The MO made caldo gallego (bean soup) and a balsamic glazed chicken today. The whole house smells delicious and we had a fabulous dinner and I have scrumptious leftovers to take to work.... Yippee!
And, being Sunday, we've had a full day of football, with the Texans getting our hopes up in the first half (tied 14-14 at the half??? could it possibly be???) and then dashing us to the ground (total of 6 yards of offense or something ridiculous like that), and then a last-minute Dallas/Seattle reversal favorably affecting my fantasy football matchup (sorry, Andy, the Boys were a sacrifice on the altar of the Spoilers). And, being THE WORLD FRICKING SERIES, we now have the Astros playing well (!) in drizzly Chicago. Tonight is slightly calmer than last night, when we had a full cheering section in the house, but there is still whooping and clapping and improvisational dancing when required. (The MO provides any necessary cussing. I am strictly a positive reinforcement sports fan.)
We also finally bottled the Oktoberfest, so I guess that means it's technically a Novemberfest, but it's going to be yummy.
