I can't believe it's Tuesday already!
I think I spend the entire week in bed or at least 80 % of it.
The sinus infection spiraled out of control again and then I ended up with a bad UTI on top of it :( I haven't been that sick for a very long time. Another trip to Urgent Care and more of the DREADED ANTIBIOTICS and I think I might actually be getting better. Not positive yet .
So not much art this week at all :(
The background was already done ... the doodles were made with a white gel pen as I laid in bed watching TV and drinking my required liquids. Just what I wanted to be doing since I was already running to the bathroom way too much already :( But I do understand the need for it...just don't like it :/
Another thing I have a tendency to do when I'm sick is look through old cookbooks. Weird I know as food wasn't appealing to me at all and I was barely eating. Maybe I was looking for something to jump/start my appetite?
This is a book I've had for 20 plus years now and made several delicious meals out of. It came from my husband's grandmother who was from Poland.
On the back pages of the book she had written the page numbers of some of her favorite recipes and others I have made are ones my husband remembered and I looked them up in the index.
There were all so lots of loose pages she had hand written recipes on and stuck them in the book. :)
What I never realized before was this was more than a recipe book...
... it was also a book about everyday life in Poland before and during the turn of the century. The book was published in 1948.
Special Holidays are included...
So I will be reading more of this great book this fall and winter and trying out many more of the recipes. Some recipes I just won't be making!
Like Duck Soup ...which sounded like it might be good...until I got to the part about using the ducks blood ( or pigs blood if you didn't have ducks blood) to make the sauce. Nope! Not making that one!
For my required drink here it is.... can you find it among the clutter that has become my desk top this month?
The sacred coffee cup that had to be refilled 2 times just to have the energy to clear off the half of my desk with the computer on it. So I could write this post with out something sliding off onto the floor or my lap :(
Hopefully I'll get the other half cleaned off tomorrow or the next day.
Today's random thoughts...
