I've camped out at Mom and Dad's for a few days because of a nasty pain in my back that makes any movement excruciating. The highlight of my day was when Katie and Nancy came home from the library and Nancy showed me the book she chose for herself.
She curled up next to me on the bed and we flipped through recipes for Croque Monsieur sandwiches, Sole Meunière, and Clafoutis.
My niece has very discerning tastes. She asked for seconds of a 72% dark chocolate and sea salt bar from World Market.
Another high point was finding that I could laugh without writhing in agony, so you know, small victories today.
