Feeling a little better...
Sending out an update so you know I'm alive and recovering! I had my doubts on Sunday as a simple flu/cold turned into an infection that brought on a lot of pain in my head. It is one of those things that happen when one has been a Type 1 diabetic for a long time. I think I picked up the original bug while waiting in a room of sickies for my three month doctor's appointment. The irony of it all.
We finally returned to modern times on Monday with the arrival of indoor plumbing! Yeah! Which made it necessary to prop myself up against the sink and do dishes. Just because I could.
Last night I roasted a chicken and as it cooled, roasted a sheet pan of various veggies I had purchased on clearance as their Use By date was up. So they really needed to be cooked by last night! It was nice cooking with chicken again. Because I could since there was running water and I could wash my hands a lot.
As I type, the chicken (minus all the white meat and some of the dark meat) is simmering away in the small stockpot, along with its' "stuffing" of carrots and onions. Excuse me, I just realized I forgot to add a couple whole garlic cloves to help in recovering.
I'm back. One of the reasons I love to make soup is that it can be put together early with all the serving dishes washed ahead of dinner. That is especially helpful when you still feel as though a truck hit you.
The remnant of Hurricane Patricia brought wind and rain the past two days. Which meant a lot of leaves made their way to the ground. My husband tells me there are still beautiful leaves in town, where they are more sheltered from the wind. I have to get out tomorrow, anyway... will take my camera just in case.
There are so many things I want to do such as answer emails and add a couple recipes to that "blog" (which is really a place I park family recipes and those I talk about here). I had taken a short break from reviewing books but now there are three in the process of reading. I need to write one of those reviews tomorrow or Friday.
I think I'll be able to do Saturday and Sunday posts. Hopefully. Prayerfully.
