i spent about two hours making homemade chicken noodle soup.i bought a chicken from whole foods that came from my friend kristin's farm! i was pretty excited about that.the only slightly difficult thing for me is i've never bought/cooked a whole chicken before. ok, i've never even touched raw meat before! i always make colin cook it.i'm weary about meat,don't eat much of it and i just don't like to think of where it came from..etc... so this was a challenge for me but i dove right in... it was so gross.it felt like a baby or something,i was gagging a bit.but i carried on and was pleased with how it came out.tasty chicken kristin!! i chopped fresh carrots and celery and made the noodles for the soup too,tho the nood's didn't turn out as good as they could have.oh well.still tastes pretty good overall.simple little soup, a lot of effort.
i've started reading two books that are very different from each other.
The Last Lecture by randy pausch is a sad story. well i believe it's meant to be inspiring-it's written by a professor and father of three who is dying of cancer.i saw an interview with him and just sobbed through the whole thing. the really sad part to me is i don't think he knows Jesus.
i am also reading The Year of Living Biblically:One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible by a.j. jacobs. it's pretty humorous [although again i don't think he knows Jesus]. jacobs also wrote a book called The Know-It-All-one man's humble quest to become the smartest person in the world- he read the entire encyclopedia britannica.fun stuff i would love to write books like that.
saylor is still not walking! we saw his doctor again today.he is getting better but we will see her again if he is not walking next week.sprain's are very painful i'm being told, so we are of course just being patient with him and letting him decide when and how he uses his little foot! he stands a little here and there and puts weight on it when he's climbing on something.the swelling and bruising have gone down too.
this is saylor [with cousin emma] on mother's day, potting some flowers.he loved the dirt.
