tried calling Michelle, my sister, but she is not home yet again. I left a message to call me back..It is ultimately my decision for mom, but even though sister is just waiting around for mom to die so she can collect any $$ that is left, I will ask her so there will be no later repercussions.
I just finished making some homemade chicken noodle soup with sliders. It is very different from the family soup that I have grown up with, but it is much better and healthier. No fat, but one thing that is odd is milk..It calls for heavy cream, but I use 1/2% milk. I do not put the sherry or flour and butter in it, I use just plain corn starch and water to thicken it slightly. Very different, but is a definite stick-to-your -ribs meal.
It is raining today, on and off, dark, dismal as usual.. My red maple tree has turned from red to purple to green and yellow!! I never saw that happen before. Usually all of the leaves are off by now, but not even a quarter of them are down. Very strange autumn.
I am headed off to pay some more bills and freeze some of that yummy soup for a rainier day than today.
I just talked to my sister and she agrees with me. Comfort measures only for mom. I feel a weight lifted off me..
