Later in the week, the inevitable post-Halloween cold stilled our activities. We mostly stayed home, recuperating quietly, wondering who’d get it next. (No one, as it turned out.) But we turned our plans into at-home experiments with art + cookery. We used new art supplies, listened to audiobooks while painting, and felt inspired to try making fresh pasta, a whole-day experiment with delicious results. Being home for a few days, just making sure we didn’t have Covid + trying not to spread germs, gave us more time to dig into projects we’ve abandoned. Both Rosetta and Wilder seemed to feel inspired by digging around, unearthing + organizing the art closet. I am hoping to do more of these things as the weather cools + we’re indoors more.

Caught nothing, but felt good to get out. Then we tentatively hit a trail together, and that felt good too. Colds officially on the mend, and we had time at home to do some reading + projects.

Five different species of butterflies were spied (capture was attempted but unsuccessful) on our hikes, and two kinds of tadpoles were fished from Brush Creek there. Rosetta also caught a baby garter snake, which her cousins had never held before.

Highlights this week: We spent much of our time tag-teaming illnesses. Days of audiobooks and TV-watching under blankets. Thankfully, the cold was a quick one.
Cover your mouth!
Cold season during a pandemic Last week, my kid got a sore throat. I’m normally nursing something post-Halloween. One year a kid puked in the car on the way home from the day-of party. Call it candy, excitement, whatever, it’s all caused by germs. We just acquire our germs around this time every year, noContinue reading “Cover your mouth!”
