It's been a while. I just really want to write about the unexpected peaceful moment I just had. A little background first though. I recently bought 5 lbs of ground chuck on sale. I needed to get it cooked up, so being a night owl, midnight was the perfect time to start. I made a pound of sloppy joes and then put some burgers on the grill. As I stood outside waiting for the burgers to cook, I looked up at the sky. It was perfectly clear, and at the same time there was a scent of Jasmine drifting toward me in the wind. I could see Ursa Major and a few other constellations and then I noticed that I could clearly see a milky white streak across the sky. The temperature, the smell, the quiet and the view were just so calming. And how silly that it all happened because I needed to make sure I didn't waste the 5lbs of beef that I got on sale. Isn't life the most wonder-filled thing? Deep, satisfying sighs. Ahhhh.
