Sorry for your losses, Carol.

Just put 8 pints of homemade chicken stock in the pressure canner and am waiting for time to be up. This quantity of stock was particularly rich and had a deep flavor. I'm looking forward to using it.

CarolPa, I'm sorry for your losses. They say bad things happen in threes, but I believe that's a superstition. I certainly hope so.

Carol, you and your family are in my thoughts. Hopefully this ends with only two loved ones gone.

Still working on the guest bedroom. I managed to stuff DH's vast collection of shorts and t shirts, that were formerly the room's centerpiece and focal point, into the dresser. He also has been storing part of his massive collection of tennis shoes in there, I have no idea as to what to do with them. I may have to start sneaking an item at a time into the Goodwill bags so he won't notice.

But it appears that we may actually be able to fit a guest in the guest room now!

Yay for progress!

Watching Chopped. I'm going to 'fess up. I've been back in the hospital since Saturday and am looking at going home Thursday. I don't want to talk about why because it's complicated. Just know that DH is an absolute rock and has been, always, as loving and helpful as he can be. He visits twice a day and brings me good food from restaurants

His boss' husband has serious medical issues, too, so she's very understanding about him taking time off on short notice, and with his job, he can do a lot of it on a laptop from here. I have excellent doctors and health insurance and am in a teaching hospital where I get "the academic advantage," as they say - a team of doctors in each specialty. So all in all, we're pretty fortunate.

So, I haven't cooked much since December, really. But I continue to collect recipes and make plans and DH has started some veggie seeds for a spring garden. So that's what I'm doing.
