Today is a beautifully dreary day.  This post isn't anything tremendously metaphysical or complicated.  Truthfully sometimes ya just gotta keep it simple. So today I kept it simple with stacking firewood, making some homemade mac and cheese and apple sauce, and I'm considering some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (but I have baked 3 batches of these quickly disappearing delights already this week).  It's one of those days that I remind myself to celebrate the simplistic things that can bring so much joy; having a conversation with a friend who makes you smile or who you can make smile, getting a good work out in or preparing a meal. So ...Happy November 8th!   What will you do with this day to celebrate something that simply makes you smile?
