Another pretty good night last night. I thought maybe I was well enough to turn my oxygen concentrator back down to its normal setting but I don’t think I got enough air last night so I cranked it back up today.

Appetite good! Was really hungry for breakfast and ate my hearty bowl of oatmeal at the dining table instead of in bed. And then I was worn out and went back to bed for several hours of nothing. But then I got hungry again in the afternoon and was feeling creative so I thought I’d see what I could make with the beets we got in the veg box. Soup sounded good (soup always sounds good) so I looked at some recipes for borscht and made a rough-and-ready version of my own. Onion, beets, potatoes, garlic, beef stock, cabbage, dill, lemon juice. It turned out delicious! But gosh it wore me out to dice those veggies, darn it. Had to go back to bed and lie down while it simmered.

I’ve eaten two big bowls, and there’s enough left for Dave if he fancies it or for my lunch tomorrow if he doesn’t. I found some sour cream in the back of the fridge to stir into my second helping and that really added an extra something.

It’s 6pm and I’m just about ready for bed… gotta stay up a while longer so I’ll sit here and munch chocolate and knit for a while. I finally got my hands on Richard Osman’s second Thursday Murder Club audiobook (via the libby app) and am enjoying it so much! I think I’m too tired to knit, actually, so I’ll just listen to my book instead. While munching chocolate. Gotta ingest those calories, ya know.

Oh! I’ve done 20 circles of my 100 circles sampler! Maybe a pic tomorrow…

    It’s funny how sour cream can suddenly become a wonder-food. When I was a kid I thought it was awful stuff. Why grownups put up with it, who knew? I classed it in the category of paying bills — things grownups do that are obviously awful. Glad to hear you had a good day.
