I am happy to report that I am still in the clear from the sickness that has invaded our house, which is good because all three of my children are now in the throes of this flu bug. Yesterday we had to see the doctor because, as timing would have it, this is finals week for Fisher and he really needed some cough medicine so he could get some sleep and make it through the last day of his tests. And poor Luca woke up so wheezy, which as a mom is just one of those things that immediately freaks me out. We are still doubling down on the natural remedies, but sometimes you need some good old western medicine. I think this weekend we will be renting dvd's, snuggling and eating lots of chicken soup.
I think I have been pretty open with the fact that I live in my yoga/leggings, a habit I can't seem to break being as I don't really have to working from home and all, but I deplore feeling like I am not fully "dressed" so I like it pair them with nice fluffy sweaters in lovely neutrals like the ones above in grey and cream.
The last couple days has been filled with news regarding the Ukraine and I hate to admit that I really had no point of reference as to what was going on. But I found this article that breaks it down, if you are in the dark too but wish you weren't it is pretty reader friendly.
This photography book which collects portraits of beloved teddy bears and other stuffed animals is one I would love to have for my coffee table collection. It is so adorable and I love that there are stories included with the portraits. I didn't really have a favorite stuffed animal myself, but Fisher did, baby bear, (who bears a striking resemblance to our new pup, Marla) he went everywhere with us (until Fisher was about 11 years old). We lost him once at a cafe while visiting a friend when Fisher was about 8. It was very traumatic, and honestly I was just as upset as Fisher was, baby had really become a part of our family and we had already lost, permanently, lamby and tigery, the first of his beloveds. But luckily when my friend went back baby bear was propped up in a highchair waiting to come home and we've all been together ever since.
I hope you all have a great weekend and stay warm and healthy.
