~ Everybody Has A Cold! ~ Crab ~ Chicken Soup ~ Banana Bread ~

Good 30º morning. Cloudy.
Yesterday Maggie and I went to the health food store and got some chewable Vitamin C for Brian. He is miserable with a nasty cold, probably shared by his children. They all, including Jen, have been coughing and blowing. Nasty stuff. When I got to his office Emily was sick too. Thankfully I took an Airborne before going there! Told them to chew those Vitamin C often all day! Drink hot tea (Dr. Oz said the hot liquid in the throat helps get rid of the gunky stuff!) Chicken soup !!!!!
We stopped at The Grange and got Nyjer seed and wild bird seed. Then to Ace for cracked corn. Home and I cleaned the chicken and bagged it in one meal servings. Then I started a pot of chicken soup with the broth from the giblets. Added the rest of the asparagus and radishes, carrots, broccoli, lots of chicken meat, Anellini pasta  
, and mushrooms. Mmmmmm mmm..... Good stuff!
It stayed pretty cloudy and gloomy yesterday.
Got sprinkles several times.
When I went out to take the mountain picture, this little
hummer was there. He seems not to be scared of me. He
doesn't fly away when I'm out there, standing almost under
the feeder. He just looks at me, and as if to say, "go ahead
take your picture, don't mind me, I'll just finish my meal."
He/she is the baby hummer that was shivering on the perch
last week when it was 19º!
Patty and Cliff left the coast (where it's predicted to snow
there too!) and stopped by with 2 GIANT crabs for me.
Tonight's dinner!!! Mmmm... lemon butter and fresh crab.
Drooling as I write!
