I'm sure I am not the only one that is happy that the midterm elections are over. Of course I'm gratified there was not a red wave, but I'm really relieved that my mail box and email are not flooded with political advertising and requests for donations. I just toss them in the trash and delete them, wholesale, from my email inbox. What a bother.
I voted early in Colorado. It's such a great system: I study the issues at home and while sitting at the kitchen table, mark my ballot. So sensible. I'm past the point in my life where I want to stand in line. I enjoy voting in the comfort of my home. Especially while the chicken roasts in the oven, infusing the house with the scent of Herbs de Provence. Lucy enjoys the organ meats, sautéed in a bit of Irish butter. I tried a bit of the liver. Yuck. I've made pate with chicken livers, but of course there's a ton of butter and a bit of cognac in there as well.
