Trying to remember what I have been doing for the past two weeks.

I have been reading I got some very interesting books. But I have also been sleeping a lot.

I have been trying to use the food in my freezer. I bought a ham and froze it in portions. Which is mostly good for making bean soup. So I have been eating bean soup. Split Pea and now Navy Bean.

I also came up with something to do with leftover lamb.
================================
Lamb and rice with pine nuts and apricots
1 leftover leg of lamb with bones and meat
1 bay leaf
1 stick of cinnamon
Water to cover
A handful of pine nuts
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion diced
1 carrot diced
1/2 cup dried apricots diced
1/2 cup raisins
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 cup brown rice

Roast a handful of pine nuts in the dry pan.
Cut the meat off the the lamb bone and separate any bones.
Put the meat and bones in a large pot and cover with water.
Add a cinnamon stick and a bay leaf and simmer for 45 minutes to make a good lamb bone broth.
Take out the bones and remove the meat. Dice the meat and set aside. Set aside the broth. Throw out the bay leaf and cinnamon stick
Add olive oil to the pan and saute the onion in the olive oil
Add the carrot, apricots, raisins, tomatoes, garlic. and rice.
Add the lamb broth and meat back in. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow to sit covered for an additional 10 minutes. The rice should be cooked by then.
Serve with pine nuts sprinkled on top.
=============================

I had some trouble with my prescription insurance. I had lost my prescription insurance. Which is a very bad thing with as many drugs as I take. Last week I got a notice that I qualified for Extra Help, which is an actual program. I tried to get my prescriptions on Thursday. But they said I needed a insurance number, which was not on any of the paperwork I received. So I made several calls and ended up with an appointment on Wednesday morning to talk to a Medicare counselor. She read all my paperwork and we found a number I could call for information. The nice young man said he would call my pharmacist and tell them the number to bill to. So I was able to get my prescriptions on Wednesday.

Tuesday my Turkish neighbor, Gulsum, brought me a homemade kabob! It was delicious. But very spicy. I'm glad I had extra yogurt to cool it down.



Wednesday evening I visited Gulsum and we had ice cream and worked on crocheting Angler Fish. This is the first time I have tried working from a pattern. It was a pleasant evening.

I have still been feeling the need to stay home. I cancelled my Chiropractor appointment on Thursday. And, for the first time in years I didn't go down to Barb's for Memorial Day weekend. She had cancelled the big party because the ticks are too bad this year for people to camp on her property. So I knew I wasn't going to miss too much.

Gina and David have sold my Camry, now we just have to switch over the title to the Honda Odyssey.

I have been trying to get things done around the house. I need to take out some recycling. And I finished a few projects. A Black Cat Hat.



And I finished my Angler Fish and started a second one.


I also turned an old pair of pants into a shirt. I think I will turn some old shirts into a skirt to go with it. I like the idea of wearing my clothes upside down.

I feel pretty accomplished for today.

Yesterday Was Full of Blessings.

Thursday was the day I had to go down to Binghamton to teach crochet at Promise Zone.

I had a good start with my chiropractor in the morning. Then I got some mail about my prescription drug insurance and was able to put in a request for my drugs at Wegmans.

I had an uneventful drive down and got to the school at 3:30. The Teenager was waiting for me and helped me get my scooter out and carried all my bags of yarn.

I did my presentation and passed on the yarn and hooks I got from Sew Green. Everything went well.

Afterward, we met Song, The Cuteness, and Grandma A for dinner at Outback. I have not been to the Outback since it opened in Vestal. They make a good steak. I had the baked potato soup, a house salad, and broccoli with my steak. And I had a Wallaby Darned® (an Australian frozen peach Bellini). I had been wondering what I would have for dinner so it was a blessing that Song treated me to a special night out.

Then I drove home through sun and thunderstorms. It was rainbow weather. I saw a huge rainbow when I was passing through Dryden.

When I got home Bri, the girl from next door, was out. I chatted with her and made plans to do some crochet on Sunday.

Then Gulsum, my downstairs neighbor, came out and asked me in for cake. She had just made a walnut blueberry cake. I was still full from dinner. But I went in for tea and we sat and crocheted until midnight.

It was a very full day. But I feel blessed by my friends and I had a lovely time crafting and hanging out with everyone.

I would have liked to have stayed in and recovered today, but Marilyn needed me to take her to pick up her car. Then she came over for tea. And I made Amish Onion Patties for dinner.

Now I hope to recover for a bit before I go out again.
