Sorry for the absence. Illness has hit our home...nothing drastic. The flu has been working through our family. And what a resilient illness it is. It feels like our family has been sick for a month, moving from not-feeling-well to confined-to-bedrest kind of illness.
Yesterday, I was in bed for most of the day. Not to jinx us, but I think we're on the road from misery to happiness. Despite being laid low, I got some baking done over the weekend (before being struck down Monday night) and some acorn gathering for my mom who volunteers at the Simi Valley Historical Society & hosts children's Chumash tours. The kids get to grind acorns. The SV Historical Society's acorn supply was decimated by a mold. Fortunately, one of our local parks has a huge harvest of acorns.
