Soup for my Soul

Though Autumn is my favorite season,
I am not very fond of the gloomy weather we are having right now.
I haven't seen the sun for several days and it is getting to me.
All I want to do is crawl on the couch,
with a book and snuggle under a blanket.

What I did do today was go down into my husbands den
and catch up on Bill Maher shows.

Last week his guests were Paul Krugman, Tucker Carlson and Joy Behar.
Even Tucker Carlson had trouble keeping a straight face trying to defend this
administration as it slowly tries to shreds the Constitution.

I don't agree with a lot of Bill Maher's stands , he is a libertarian
and he believes
"that all persons are the absolute owners of their own lives,
and should be free to do whatever they wish with their persons or property,
provided they allow others the same liberty."

I do believe we are a country of laws and maybe there
are some people who do need
protection from those that think we don't need laws.

What I do like about Bill is, he is willing to admit
when he is wrong, as he has about his support of Ralph Nader in 2000.

He is also willing to have both sides of the argument on his show,
and has no problem telling them they are full of it,
if they say something ridiculous.

I am looking forward to his show tonight.

But first I have to get up off my "chair" and
head to the kitchen and make some soup.
That is my catharsis when I am feeling as gloomy as the weather.

Here's sending you warm wishes to get well soon!

I must admit that I can not wait until it is cold enough here to make soup and all of the other comfort foods! Unfortunately, everything that I love to eat are too " heavy" to eat on hot days, so I typically have to wait until the weather is cold enough to make it! We received a cold front, and today's high was in the lower 80s...beautiful weather, but still just a tad bit warm for soup! :)

Love ya and get well soon!
