“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind” Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes
This was on my calendar this morning, and I wondered if it were a warning from the physic world to watch myself! The weather keeps me in, but it does not cease the severe worry I have for both family and friends in dire situations. Some are facing death. My heart aches for them, and while we have been with them, we don’t want weather to keeps us from supporting them more.
Meanwhile, the map shows more ugly stuff coming! On Monday DH and I filled the gas tank, stopped at the pharmacy, got extra milk at Braum’s, and some gluten free Bisquick at the store. Then we took a Sonic and drove out by the river before going home to wait on the storms. The day was cold but oh, the sun was so bright! The ducks and geese were huddled near the bank of the river…life for the fowl and the river was going on as usual.
Yesterday while our families were in 9 inches of snow, we only got about three. Still streets were nasty and we stayed in for sure. Well, it was still very much soup season! So for lunch, the soup was a new one, Panera Kale. I made some alterations because I used what I had. Smoked Polish sausage became browned bulk sausage; red potatoes with skins became peeled Russets; cannellini beans became Anasazi beans, and I added extra chicken broth. It was so good!
Supper was a trusted and easy broccoli cheese soup. Today will be leftovers of both!
