Now this is a great Word of the Day.
sub·lime /səˈblīm/
Adjective:  Of such excellence, grandeur, or beauty as to inspire great admiration or awe.
And it describes how we felt about our day as we lounged in bed, at a late brunch on the veranda overlooking our garden, reclined in lounge chairs under the shade of a cherry tree, doing nothing and simply feeling at peace and at ease with the world.  Then an afternoon run over rolling hills through the open fields and woodland trails that characterize every town in Germany.  Followed up with a home-cooked healthy and delicious vegan dinner of cuban black beans, rice and pineapple, with roasted green beans and shallots, along with a bulgar salad with cherry tomatoes and cranberries.  So perhaps you can see why the WotD is sublime.  Yes, indeed.

Hello Anon.

That will be a little bit hard to do when you are anonymous.

But then I guess you could just try dropping into our house and see what's for dinner.

Be advised: we (and by "we" I mean Carol ;-) cook in bulk, so you may get leftovers. But they are yummy too, in fact, sometimes even better as all the flavors have a chance to mingle.
