Super, super good and just right hot chili! Last Saturday night Raylene and Richard invited me over for chili, and I am always ready for Richard’s chili. It was Ron’s favorite also. This time it was a bit spicy hot, which was just perfect for the cold season we are processing. I had my ccc (for those of you that don’t know yet, that’s my cheap, chic camera), so I took some pictures, the one above included. I love my new ccc, it has its own intelligence and knows when to flash a little or flash a lot. Just like some humans I know, self included. Maybe that’s why I like it a lot.
After partaking with the delicious hot stuff, we set about to watch a movie. “The Blind Side.” Great inspirational true story movie. It showed something that I strongly believe in. You have to be yourself, be strong when you need to, and most of all, dare to show up when we see a situation that needs our showing up. This woman from the South was small in size but humongous in determination and courage. Thanks the Creator for people like her. All in all, it also showed that yes, it takes a village to make a difference in other people’s lives. If we look, we shall find. There are others just as determined as we are.
Also, to cap the evening, Raylene graciously gave me a beautiful case for my ccc, which she found when she was globetrotting a few years ago in Turkey. How plentiful is the universe. So much we are given. I am always grateful, always. She noticed that I had my ccc in a plastic sheet, so she disappeared with my ccc, and voila, a chic case for it.
Life is sooooo good!
Until next time,
Your Happy Contessa
