Hello. You asked about my soup. I finally made it last week. Ended up using stuff I had on hand. I had a bag of lentils, water, a large can of diced tomatoes, celery, carrots, a can of black beans, a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach leaves, some broccoli I found in freezer, garlic, and some other seasonings. I think that was about it. After it cooked, I ladled it into 2 smaller containers I could handle 1-handed.

I ended up taking some of those veggies to a friend's house for cutting. My neighbor has been pretty sick, but she is doing better now. And I did a "MacGyver" with that can of diced tomatoes. I think an electric can opener is a waste of counter space and just have a hand crank one. I found a thick, little rubber band that probably came on a bunch of broccoli or something and doubled that around the handles and managed the can 1-handed.

The soup is nothing to write home about, but it works for me.

I still can't sleep very well with this cast, so I end up taking a catnap or 2 when I can. I am a little weepy today but doing a little better after lying down for a bit.

I know a lot of us have extra burdens right now...Peace to all.

That's persistence. You are extraordinary. Indulge in the weepiness when necessary. Being in a cast is like being trapped. But you will be freed. I have kept a count when I was in a cast of how many days remained til I would be freed, but that backfired when my ankle didn't heal on schedule.

With this group as it stands today, I think we could schedule a weepiness time each afternoon Abby and lots of us could join right in. How about 2:15 to 2:30pm? Lots of us surely need it and its good for misery to have company even if its virtual

I made some chicken broth that I might try to make lentil soup with and add in a few of those things . I am sorry that youare so sad but sometimes a good cry can make you feel better
I am a tad worried about Kim she has been MIA for almost a week . I know she had some worries about her partner Michael . I sure hope she is ok ..

Being weepy is good for you anyway. Crying clears toxins from the tear ducts so that's why you feel better. I wish you a fast recovery.

Thank you, everyone.
Hey, Roh, I did notice a similar comment in another post. Didn't mean to ignore. Been crying for lots of reasons. Yes, it is cleansing. A little tired of it, though. A pastor friend of mine calls them "liquid prayers."

Ah, didn't mean to be repetitive. It's just one of those things modern society forgets. I know what you mean about being tired of crying!
