It was good to see some color out there this morning. Too many grey starts lately.
Before I went out to the barn I could not resist grabbing a shot of my orchid, which is still going strong.
Very cold, but relatively quiet.
If we're lucky, it will be above freezing in a couple of days.
After chores I went down to Agape and finally hit a total of 20 minutes on the elliptical. It really is the aerobic workout I need. All kinds of pals were there...even one of my students from the 90s.
On the way home I went to the bank and Wegmans. Did some laundry and not much else.
Today my little Sony camera bit the dust. It made a comeback a few weeks ago and was being held together with a rubberband. Now when I press the start button, the lens stays out and I don't see a picture. It must have been frozen to death and I give up.
Gary watched Finn and Coop this afternoon...I am on the prowl for another book. Got any suggestions?
It was nice and light, so I didn't go out to do chores until 5:30. Is there really such a thing as summer?
Wrapped my Canon camera in a dish towel, it's bag and another bag (such a pain) and went out for evening chores.
The girls were ready to chow.
The sun was almost all the way down as I walked back to the house.
We had a hefty lunch, so dinner was not a biggie.
Made a little fruit cup and we had leftover soup and homemade bread.
Attention Annette and Buttons!!!!!!
Here's how I made it.
We had leftover Chicken French and Chicken Florentine the other night so I decided against making chicken salad and made chicken soup. First I sauteed an onion, two carrots, a couple stalks of celery and about 1 cup of shredded cabbage. Then I added chicken stock and 1 bag (about 2 cups) of sauce from our garden (onion, tomato, peppers, garlic and carrots)...let it simmer for awhile. Finally I put in the sliced chicken (there were lots of mushrooms and some flat leafed parsley on it) and let it simmer again. The last thing added ...the leftover pasta (Kluski egg noodles). Man! Nothing went to waste. It was even better tonight and the noodles never got mushy. We topped it with a little Romano cheese...so let's see, I guess you could call it Italian Chicken Noodle/Veggie Soup.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
