Photo of Charlotte, isn't she a beauty?
I am eager to see her again and to hold her. That would be wonderful.
But today I spent most of my day in bed   due to the pain in my back, so not a good day by any means.
But when I got up around 3:00 I was able to finish the  soup I began
yesterday. It didn't take very long as I just had to cut up the vegetables, add the rice  and a few little pastas that are shaped like a doughnut.
This is the recipe:
Take your turkey, I bought two turkey thighs, put them in a large pot
along with a carton of chicken broth and a similar amount of water, boil the liquid and turkey legs/thighs, until the turkey is cooked. Leave it in the pot to cool and when ti is cooled set in in the fridge for the night.
My plan was to start it again earlier in the day but bed called to me today.
Scoop off any excess fat while it is cold and then start the boil again.
Cut up onions, carrots, celery, garlic and a bit of broccoli cut very small. Put them into the turkey boil and let them cook.
Take about a half cup of rice, wash it and let it drain in the sieve, then do that again.  Add one more carton of broth and continue to cook . I added a small amount of pasta but that is optional, I just happen to like pasta. I added a bit of curry and Ray likes Tabasco sauce or  Worcestershire sauce , all for flavour, your choice.
I'll let you know how it all comes out. I love soup and bread for dinner especially home made soup. I don't make bread LOL .
I had some fabric that Mary loved so I gave it to her when she  came to visit last night. She was happy about that. Sometimes just having some nice fabric and not even doing anything with it is fun.

Doesn't your heart sing when you see a new baby.

Mom and baby. Meaghan and Charlotte.

So that was my life today. Bed and cooking!!
Have a good evening. I hope to get some good TV in tonight.
Bonne nuit.
