I am sorry that I have not had a post since the 17th. My mom’s birthday was on the 20th, she turned 71. Since I didn’t get to spend her 70th with her, I wanted to make sure that I spent this year with her.
So, while I was visiting her, and staying at a friend’s house, I fell down a flight of wooden stairs my first morning there.
I discovered that I don’t bounce like I thought. I have been home since Friday evening and living in my bed for most of the day. When I finally get up, I am in the shape of a 90° angle. I ended up with a red swath about 2.5 inches wide and probably 5-7 inches long and a bruise(s) so deep from where I landed that it is still developing on my back. I spend a couple hours on the couch, laying down, watching Netflix until I am burned out. This has also led to a relatively sad diet. Oh, and no coffee for the last 3 days – I’m out of milk. Going to the grocery store sounds like too much work.
I have one rib that is more painful than the rest, but I don’t think it is broken, just very deeply bruised. This is the second time I have fallen this year (remember my ice slide) and it is not fun.
Today I am feeling a little bit better and a little more concerned about my very sad diet. So, I am making a potato soup that starts with a traditional mirepoix (carrots, celery, onion) with garlic, three different colored potatoes, fresh rosemary, and turkey stock. I will add some brockwurst and spinach later. Now that the potatoes are cooked, I will blend some of it, to give it some thickness, then add in the brockwurst and the spinach (or I have some tatsoi outside – maybe that would be yummier).
Well, I feel better now that I have let you all know that I didn’t drop off the face of the earth. In the event that you are interested in the recipe, drop me a line! You know I enjoy sharing.
P.S. – for those of you that have left comments and awards that I haven’t answered yet – I will, please be patient with me.
I love you all!
