After work, the twins had their monthly orthodonture checkup, they are both finally ready to get them removed. I had paid off their bills years ago, using FSA funds. They will soon get retainers, at no additional cost, as they are included in the set fee contract. 5 of us have used this particular MD, and he has been very accomodating. Soon, I won't have the monthly (although now lower with my new car)gas expense to drive them over to the next town for check ups. Nice. Once home, I set my attention to dinner.
Any leftover tea will be decanted into this pitcher, and used to fill plastic refillable drink bottles for the kids to take to school in their lunches.
As supper was baking, I simmered the black beans, now drained, awaiting me in the morning, quietly resting in the CP. When I get home tomorrow, I'll make a quick batch of homemade corn bread to accompany. Record low temps, this will be a welcomed dinner!
Additionally, I have 2 loads of laundry drying by the wood stove and radiator.
