Homemade Soup, Rhubarb Pie and a little bun in the oven.

Today I made some celery soup and a rhubarb pie (with the first of our rhubarb from the allotment). No big deal you are no doubt saying, but these are the first things I have actually made from scratch in the last 5 weeks or so. It is testimony to the resilience of the human stomach that we have survived so long on ready meals, sandwiches, cold chicken and cereal, but survive we have. I am recovering nicely from what ended up being pleurisy but still feel somewhat on the fragile side. I had thought that the horrid pain in my chest and back was just a pulled muscle or possibly even my imagination, but pleurisy it turned out to be. No treatment as due to an (ahem) underlying condition I am unable to take the antibiotics usually given for it.

Which brings us to the little bun in the oven. . . .

Sorry you have been so sick and with a bun in the oven too. No fun!

So, when in November are you due? How many children do you have? Us "elderly" moms need to stick together for support! lol!

On a historic note, lol, I went to school on a Air Force Base in High Wycombe in the early 80's, and went into London a few times for plays and McDonalds! My parents and siblings lived in No. Yorkshire for 7 years. I came back to the states after graduating High School.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. =)
