Yesterday Lupine got a little fussy. She was clingy, weepy, complaining, demanding. So we cuddled up under a cozy quilt and read books. Dozens of books. We moved to the bench beside the fire, she laid her head in my lap and was asleep before five PM, her cheeks red with fever and fire light.
So today If you need me I'll be in the family room by the fire serving up stories, snuggles, herbal tea and Belladonna 30C (a homeopathic remedy for fever). We brought in plenty of firewood this weekend so there's no need to go outside, what with those knee-deep snow drifts across the path and all.
Yes, today I think we'll stay in our PJs and take it slow. We have plenty of gifts to make, games to play, and another mountain of books to read. And that feels like the perfect way to spend this blustery day.
Keep warm, snuggle in, and slow down. It's December.
