F has been with us this weekend. She'll be going back home when she finishes reading her book about Princess Alice. Evidently she is finding it quite the page-turner.

We've had her this weekend because F has been battling some kind of virus or something and she called Friday night with a headache, fever, and feeling like crap. So her dad went to get her when he got off work early Saturday morning. I made soup, with just a little bit of chicken b/c F is more about the vegetables; and onion, celery, red bell pepper, carrot, potato, okra, tomato, yellow squash and zuchini, and alphabet noodles. Added some purchased chicken broth. Lots of sleeping, drinking fluids, and Mommy soup has done the trick - she looks like she feels OK now. (Oh - and I made her a nice dinner a while ago, catfish, fried okra, and salad. When she saw the okra she told me I am a nice mommy. Right, and don't you forget it, I told her.)

The rest of the soup is in tubs ready to go back to Kissimmee, along with some other stuff.

I've had discussions with people about jobs elsewhere in the country, but how could I leave her?

Nothing like a mom to make one feel better.

My mom makes me feel better.

It's true, the super-nice moms send the rest of the soup home with the kid. And what is it about okra in soup that is SO yummy????? I hope F is feeling better.

Kate, I think it's the slime in the okra - it gives the liquid in the soup a really good texture. Plus, okra and tomatoes are very good together, for some reason. I always like some sliced tomato with my fried okra - yum!

- And yes, she tells me she is feeling better, thanks.
