Weekend update

The only problem with beautiful fall weekends is that it means winter is coming. This weekend was one of those beautiful fall weekends that just make me happy. I started off the weekend by making my chili. The first cool Saturday of the fall I make my chili and watch college football. I was a total bum yesterday, but it felt good and the chili was delicious. Oh, and my Dawgs beat Vandy too.

Today was much more productive. I started the day off with a nice 5.5 mile run with my running buddy. It was still pretty cool and the wind was blowing about 15 mph out of the north, but it was crisp and the hills and miles passed quickly. When I got home the bride was laying on the couch with a funny look on her face. It turned out she had started the selfing cleaning function on the stove and a fire had developed in the oven. I had just missed the firemen. :) I had never really given it much thought, but the reason that an oven door locks during the self cleaning function is that if a fire develops then it starve it's self of oxygen. Good to know.

We then went to Pentagon City to update our cell phones. We saw a sale on glasses and we each got new glasses. I typically just my glasses at night after I take my contacts out. I haven't seen this good through glasses in years. The rest of the day was taken up with cleaning the house, grocery shopping and finally catching up on email. I am ready for bed.

Chili...mmm...I'm going to eat some Turkey Chili for dinner now because of you. :)

As for the oven self cleaning feature - that's like the funnest feature ever. And a fire would be awesome entertainment (self contained of course!).

The chili sounds wonderful. I may have to make some tomorrow.

I am still laughing at the self cleaning oven incident. It sounds like something goofy that would happen to me!

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of winter, either. Fall is great... but you know what's coming... January and February. March usually sucks, too.
