Finally found a local pasture-raised pork producer that sells a small smoked ham. I baked it yesterday and it was WAY too salty. So I soaked some navy beans and made soup tonight with half of the ham, navy beans, onion, garlic, half a jar of spaghetti sauce, and chicken broth. The ham salted the rest of the soup and I only needed to add some black pepper.

It was a good day today despite more rain. I could get used to being a homebody, except that I learned the hard way that in my case it can lead to agoraphobia. I don’t need to get too comfortable in my cocoon. But I gotta tell ya, I feel so much better than I did a week ago.

Received the syllabus from my professor and ordered my textbook. I’m getting excited about going back to school again! Well, not for work, you know. But, class, YAY!
