I've had this cold now for 3 days and it really hasn't been too bad but I've been able to rest and eat. Now I go back to work tonight and that will be the real test. I certainly do not want to relapse. I'm doubling up on all my herbs, taking in a bottle of water with me, a hot cup of echinacea tea, some throat lozenges and tissues - aghhh!!!!! Lots of tissues. I know those customers don't want me behind that register any more than I want to be, but they require you to be there short of dying!! The rest now is up to me. I keep telling myself to not push it, go at things moderately and try not to play Super Girl!
I stayed in the house all day and decided to can up the broth I had sitting in the frig, along with the leftover soup. No that's really not work. The tough stuff was already finished. All I had to do was get rid of the fat that had solidified on top of the broth, heat all the stuff up, put it into jars and let the pressure cooker do its thing. My pressure canner holds 7 quarts and I ended up with 8 quarts of Turkey/Vegetable Broth, 3 quarts of wonderful Turkey Soup and 3 quarts of Water. Not bad!!
Oh everyone - I just have to tell you!!! My nephew and his wife have a new baby boy. "Fletcher J." For we older men and women who have children, remember when we first held our tiny ones? Something is triggered so deep inside that it stays lodged there for the rest of your life. When you gaze into a piece of yourself . . . . there's nothing else like it!
