What could be better???

So here's the thing.... I have no intention of even attempting to exercise today.  Last night I went out with friends, drank too much and had almost too much fun.  So today I am paying for it.  Add to that the fact that these same friends are coming over this afternoon for the Superbowl and I think I have a perfect excuse to skip exercise today. 

What I am doing today is cooking.  So today is bound to be a great day.  Cooking is one of my favorite things to do, and days when I have a reason to cook for make me very happy.  So today I am making chili which I find especially fun since I make it slightly different every time.  It is almost like a work of art.  I start with the regular stuff, and then John and I spend the day fiddling with it.  Adding a bit of this and a bunch of that.  It is as close to being an artist I ever feel.  I am also making cheese dip and guacamole.  For those I stick pretty close to my perfected recipes although I never measure anything.   The girls also wanted to serve cupcakes,  and so I baked those this morning, and the girls will be decorating them this afternoon.

So I know today will be a good day.  We have hosted people for Superbowl Sunday often enough that it doesn't stress me out the way the entertaining sometimes can.  I am thankful that I don't feel the need to impress the friends who are coming over.  It is nice to have people who just accept who you are around you.   As for the game, none of us really care who wins.  For us today is about enjoying good friends and good food.  What could be better???
