My wonderful sister in law made chicken soup last night and invited us to join them for dinner. Her family calls her soup "healing soup". And it did just that! I feel better and Ron is doing a little bit better. Last night was the first night in a week that we both slept most of the night without a severe coughing spell.
If only the weather would warm up I believe we would both regain our energy and enjoy some new adventures. For now we're just trying to stay warm and get well.
We spent the day doing just about nothing. I did a few loads of laundry and Ron sat in the sun working on whittling a couple of walking sticks. We have looked at walking sticks in the store and thought about buying one for each of us but just never did it. Ron has crafted two great sticks for us and I think they'll come in handy when we're trekking through the mountains of the Carolina's and the Virginia's next summer.
After an evening of reading we called it a day.
