Best Grilled Cheese Ever!

Stubborn adj. 1. Unreasonable inflexible: obstinate and willful

If you live in Florida you look forward to the days when you can open up your house and turn your air conditioning off. First, because it is a reminder of why you live in Florida. While others are scraping snow off their windshields, you are sitting on your lanai in short sleeves sipping your favorite beverage and saying, “we truly do live in paradise.” Second, because after months of paying your astronomical electric bill, you finally turn off your air and watch your bill drop like your mouth when you see your son put his dirty dish in the dishwasher. It’s cause for a happy dance. So when the temperatures drop like your electric bill, turning on the heat defeats the whole purpose of turning off the air. I’m sitting here typing, my fingers are stiff, my body is shivering even with three layers of clothes and my thermostat looks like this….

On the right is the temperature I prefer. On the left, notice how the white line has given up on finding the correct temperature. It slants down from seventy to sixty degrees. It’s so cold in our house our thermostat has gone into shock.

So today, the day before our crazy schedule begins. ( I just added all our activities to my new Eckhart Tolle calendar. I filled up January through March.) I’m going to find the warmest blanket in my house and curl up next to this…

And hope that my kind, loving, talented, husband will make me this….
