Bill Of Fare

One of latest (e)mail messages I received was from the MD with whom I had a telephone appointment and received an Rx for eye drops for me. Just recently, my daughter was down with a sinus infection that took her out of commission for about a week and a half.  She had an in person MD visit and a telephone visit. I really came to appreciate the telephone visits because it saves the time of having to drive to a doctor.

I morphed into my maternal role of cooking soups of chicken and minestrone but her taste buds were not up to appreciating my efforts. At least that is what I am telling myself not wanting to accept that my cooking is bad. The illness kept my daughter from wanting to cook anything and I have missed her contributions to our bill of fare. Now I am a bit under the weather with an eye infection and she is getting back to normal and appreciates feeling better. So she made dinner for us which was great. I really am not into cooking the daily dinners any more and really love that she likes to cook and does not mind pitching in with menu suggestions, cooking, and shopping with me. I am grateful too for easy to put together items from the local groceries and restaurants that deliver.

In the meantime, Spring has sprung in my backyard.



Stream of Consciousness Saturday, #SOCS, is hosted by Linda G Hill.  Today’s prompt: “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!

    Glad Kate is better. What a ‘plus’ that she enjoys cooking. Hope your eye gets back to normal soon. I enjoyed seeing all your beautiful yard plants. Enjoy the spring!

      Kate had a rotten bug that seems to be going around and I think I caught a little bit of it in my eye. It’s been a long time since I’ve had an eye infection. Uncomfortable and I can’t read very much. Thank you, Cynthia. xo

    I like the abundance of veggies on that menu and the star shaped flowers. The plants on the bottom middle photo remind me of baby birds with mouths open. I hope your eye gets all better soon!

      The Jelly Bean succulents? They really spread out and have duplicated themselves in a couple of spots. That other succulent does look like baby bird mouths but prickly inside. I am feeling better. My eye is cleared up pretty much now. Thank you, JoAnna. xo
