Last night at 11pm, Sally got some extra energy like you sometimes do after a day with fever. She went downstairs, snuggled up with me on the sofa and fell asleep. It was so cozy to lie there, lit candles everywhere, snuggled up with my daughter and watching the movie Amelie. At 12.30am I carried my kids over to the big bed and we fell asleep together. Today Sally is free from fever (seems to have been a classic 48 hour fever), but today will be a calm and quiet day in order for her to recover fully. I might keep the kids at home tomorrow, depending on how they feel. I have a plan B if that is the case. I will be hosting a press lunch for my new online series, but the rest I can reschedule.
I began my morning with a super smoothie. One deciliter frozen mango, grated fresh ginger, a teaspoon turmeric, a splash of almond milk and some coconut oil.
After breakfast, we snuggled up on the sofa and watched Finding Nemo. The house is clean and the candles are lit. Despite the illness, this is probably the best day of the week.
