We Have a Cold

We have a cold.  One shared cold.  Two cups of peppermint tea (one with honey) at bedtime.  Freeze warnings outside tonight, this is when I am so very grateful for the gifts of bed warmers from my dear friend in Spreckles.  Two minutes in the microwave then pop them at the foot of the bed like the hot water bottles of old.  Toasty toes.

Poor v is more at risk with a cold due to his chemo.  It suppresses his immune system.  At least this week is his break (fingers crossed for that CT scan tomorrow morning).  We've been pretty careful about his exposure, though I can't seem to keep him imprisoned in the house all day, he gets out somehow.

Another helpful, and just plain luxurious, gift recently arrived: Harry and David! Oranges, apples, and (my favorite) pears!  Thank you notes are to be written in the morning! 

Christmas is coming! Christmas is here!

In bocca al lupo.  m & v


  1. Hoping for the best results from the exam.
    I think that v.'s probably part cat because you just can't keep him from going out; he slips out like a shadow. m-e
