A Good Kind of Sacrifice

It's cold and blustery out today and soccer practice has been canceled. My youngest is kind of bummed as playing soccer with his friends is pretty much the highest thing on his list these days. I am trying to be as diplomatic as possible, but to be honest, sitting out in a cold wind is something I can do without, especially just getting over a bout with the flu--not THAT flu but still not very fun.

Luckily I had just made up a batch of elderberry syrup so even though my son, myself and my hubs all came down with fever, body aches, stuffy nose, cough and congestion--it only lasted 2 to 3 days before we could all tell that we were definitely over the hump and improving.

So, I think for today, after the rabbits and chickens are all bedded down in some soft shavings and straw...


and the dogs and cats are all let inside to get out of the chill, the afternoon will be much better spent in some nice warm pj's near a crackling fire.

Sometimes you just have to make sacrifices, you know?

Hope your evening finds you warm and snuggly as well.

  1. Elderberry extract...we use it here too. :)
    A great anti-viral.

    We used to have bunnies...Holland Lops. But in our little townhouse/apartment, we just didn't have room for them. And they were ruining our carpet. :(

    Hope you're having a good weekend.


I would love to hear your comments so I know you stopped by...
