Was supposed to go to the bonfire tonight...that plan went out the window when I started making the soup...I could share my soup at the bonfire but I'm not going to do that basically because I am being selfish with my soup...and also because it is cold and rainy...and Chef Ramsey is on tonight so it's just gonna be a no for me...but I feel slightly guilty about that...but I'm still not gonna go.

Even squirrels take time out to smell the daisies!

Golden-mantled Ground Squirrels are solitary…
