Soup for Supper

An invitation from my daughter to “Come over this afternoon and make some chicken soup”; a whole chicken simmering for hours until the stock was rich and well seasoned; plenty of chopped fresh vegetables; and a dollop of patience…That’s what it took to make a large pot of savory soup.


Believe it or not, my first venture into making soup, but probably not my last. As I climbed into the car and headed for home with my share of the soup, Becky said, “Next time we’ll make vegetable beef.”

This post was created entirely with my iPhone 6+ for cellpic Sunday.

Lazy Sunday afternoon

After church and lunch, it was far too cold (about 16 degrees) for a trail walk, so I decided the best thing to do would be relax and read. Picking up this book I found in the bookstore before Christmas, that’s exactly what I did. It has been a quiet, peaceful afternoon. 

This is my post for Cellpic Sunday, taken, processed, and posted via my iPhone 6+.

See you soon.

Trail Walker

Everybody loves a teddy bear!

On Christmas Day, our church (Willoughby United Methodist) serves a free turkey and ham dinner with all the extras to anyone in the community who wants to join other people for a delicious holiday dinner. This year it followed our Sunday worship service. We give teddy bears as gifts. We also take bears to give away when we go Christmas caroling in nursing homes. People of all ages love teddy bears!

Cellpic Sunday: Cookies

I think I may have eaten my fill of Christmas cookies with these thumbprint cookies and the sand tarts Becky and I baked on Sunday. Enough is enough! It was way too icy to take a trail walk, but the baking was a great substitute activity.  As soon as the ice melts and the trails are clear, I better hit the trails. After baking (and eating) so many cookies, I need the exercise!

Cellpic Sunday: Snow!

First real snowfall

Bob was helping our daughter clear the snow from her driveway. What a relief when a man named Otis came along and agreed to clear it with the plow on his truck for a reasonable fee. As far as I was concerned, Otis was a life saver.

This was our first real snowfall for the season. We got about 15 inches of the white stuff, and it isn’t officially  winter for another 10 days. I’m fantasizing about spending a few months in a warmer climate…say from February through April.

This is the first Cellpic Sunday post I’ve made entirely with my iPhone 6+.
