The virus has kicked in and our little one is fighting a nasty fever. So play dates were canceled and yes there was television. But there were other things too. The floors were mopped, the laundry was done and we rested, and spent time with just the right friends for the day: Jen Corace and Cynthia Rylant (I wish my clothes were as nice as Gretel’s, what a beautiful book) and Renee and Jeremy. Plasticine was played with and the afternoon will be spent making robots (thanks daddy for printing!), and baking bread while the little one naps. Not exactly as planned but a good day nevertheless. Today I learned that I always need apple juice and fever remedies in the pantry, and the makings for soup in the fridge.
