this month and new year has had a wobbly start. after having the wonderful ultrasound and cocoa date with cc's pa, some aches and sickness set in. the next two days were spent with stomach flu. since then the snow and freezing temperatures have kept us tucked up indoors. cc has taken to helping out in the kitchen. mashing, stirring and tipping all sorts while stood tip toes on his wooden stool.
a wonderful friend tapped at mabel's door this evening with a get well soon gift. a square box of six lovely macaroons. cc shuffled them as if they were miniature cards, then stacked them up. then we shared some after supper, happy as can be.
