and so it begins


We are having a nice, rainy day here, the wind isn't so bad, at the moment. We will see what it brings this afternoon, as it makes its way towards us.
Last night we lit our first fire of the season, and it was wonderful. Makes everything so cozily warm inside the house. We had good friends over for dinner, with some good comfort food (meatloaf and mashed potatoes). I was in dire need of comfort food yesterday. MM's jeep liberty died kind of a miserable, oil spewing death on me yesterday. We expected it, because it had turned into a major POS. But, I still felt pretty dang bad about the whole thing. Apparently Chrystler went through a period of time where they made cheap, crappy engines for Jeeps. And poor MM got one.
So a warm fire, comfort food, and friends. And a nice glass of wine, did the trick. Having the nice, rainy day today helps, too. (Maybe it wash down the oil trail of shame going up our road....)
