A little lovin in a bowl

I've been slacking on my blog because I've been a little under the weather since Sunday evening.

Sadly, it looks like I've got pleurisy. Which at first I confused with pleurosis, that crippling disease that isolates the poor protagonist in Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie... But it's not that. Yay. (Though it might have been fun to say I've got 'blue roses.') Really it's just a viral infection of the lining of my lungs. And it hurts. Boo.

Joe was brave and made me a chicken noodle soup per my instructions from the couch where I rested when we got home from work today. This one's really simple: Just chicken broth, chopped zucchini (cooked til translucent) and some cavatappi (big fat corkscrew shaped pasta.) It turned out wonderfully.

So sorry to hear about the pleurosis! When I first read that word, I thought it must be a terrible disease...so I'm glad it's not anything more serious! (although I know it hurts).

How nice of Joe to make you soup just the way you want it! Whenever I get sick or feel "down," Matt knows to buy me some taro bread. That always makes me feel better. :)

I hope you feel better soon. We miss your smiling face. I am glad Joe is taking good care of you.

With Prayers,
