Stopped me in my tracks. I used to make yogurt. Almost every day, I made yogurt. I had a little yogurt maker. Not sure where it went. But I went to e-bay, found someone selling one in the box for the highest bid. Turns out not many folks want a yogurt maker. I got it for under $9, a Euro Cuisine that makes 7 cups of yogurt at a time. Heading off to my old friend Google, I found a recipe for the Greek Honey yogurt that is my favorite yogurt. I make a batch up every Saturday, and it is enough to last me for a week of breakfasts.
I top it with granola and eating breakfast this morning, studying my bag of granola, another think occurred to me. I used to make my own granola too.
Google had a nice recipe for that, as well. Reading it, I realized that all the ingredients I need are already in my cupboard.
There is a strange satisfaction, at 63, to rediscover that something which made perfect sense at 33 is still perfectly sensible.
It does not always happen that way.
A winter storm is coming. We are expecting another few inches of snow tomorrow. It will remain cold. The home fires are still burning and we're waiting this all out patiently. I am glad that Tim does not have to work tomorrow. I worry about that 75 minute commute in bad weather.
It also gives us an extra day to finish up our work on the tax information that we are organizing for our tax man.
Another box ticked, this one a major accomplishment.
Another storm coming, one storm closer to spring.
Step by step, we're moving forward.
