autumn colour week

I'm participating in autumn colour week this week. Besides tomorrow's cooking for kids post (made from these ingredients), I'll just be posting photos this week. I have a miserable cold and little boy is recovering from a nasty GI bug that hit him while he was on a group camping trip with Gary and some friends. I finished a 120+ hour, year-long course for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd on Saturday, noticed that I had a hard time paying attention, and took a nap when I got home. Much like my boy, I only sleep during the day if I'm ill. His daddy reported that they got to the camp, little boy ran around, then went to take a nap. Then all GI nastiness broke loose. He and I were both running fevers Saturday, Sunday, and today. So nothing's getting done but some snuggling, reading, movie-watching, and massive spraying-down of everything we touch with lavender-tea tree disinfectant spray (2 c water, 10 drops each essential oil).

On the up side, this means that I don't have to scrape down those kiln shelves quite yet.

I hope your weather is as beautiful as ours is. We did a little convalescing outside to enjoy the sunshine and mild temps. After two straight weeks (really, it was 16 days) of rain every day, we needed some vitamin D.

I'm not doing autumn color because we don't have any. Poo.
