Break out the crockpot

Did you enjoy that brief breath of spring before the cold came in again? One thing about weather in our valley if you don't like it, just stay around a few hours and it will change. It did give husband Norm a chance to get the outside Christmas lights down and stored for next year. Even most of the inside decorations are put away and the tree ready for flowers until next Christmas. Those spring-like temperatures caused me to look over at the garden and, foolishly, gave me the idea I should be doing something there. That didn't last long. Within a few days, the heavy sweaters came out, along with fresh tea and the fireplace turned up. Using the oven helped to warm up the kitchen, so oven meals and hot soup came back on the menu.
