Another stop was at a bakery where I purchased hearty sourdough twisted cheese breadsticks to accompany the pumpkin soup I'd pulled from the freezer for supper. Actually, I didn't purchase them because when we walked into the store, the owner informed us that the power had gone out due to the wind, and they could accept only cash. I had none, so my friend bought the bread for me (and more for herself).
Another cozy evening at home listening to the steady rain falling outside in the dark. How thankful I am for a warm, dry home.
