Time to be quiet?

It’s labor day, the last holiday of the summer. It’s been storming off and on all day and rain

always relaxes and energizes me spiritually at the same time.

We were invited to a yard party this afternoon but while at my friend David’s house I realized I needed today to be quiet. I wanted to spend the afternoon drawing and studying, or so I thought.

I did spend some time drawing, then I decided to cook up the tomatoes a kind person brought to church yesterday. I was so hungry for Grandma’s tomato soup!

Jeff wanted a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich so I hit the freezer looking for bacon. The freezer’s been building up ice so I decided to clean it out while I was in there. My search yielded some pancetta and some softened rum raisin ice cream that I couldn’t let go to waste!

The soup turned out almost as good as I remember it. the drawing was familiar but different. It’s been awhile so it felt great to be drawing again.

I guess it may not fit everyone’s idea of a quiet afternoon. There wasn’t much noise but I wasn’t particularly still either.

All in all it was was a great afternoon!
