A Confinement

Mrs. White's Parlour in Vermont

This has been a cozy winter, here in New England.  Last month brought us many snowstorms which kept us indoors much of the time.  We are in the midst of a below zero cold spell right now. It is a time to rest and keep busy indoors.

A gentle sickness has brought a confinement.  I am weary and struggling, but know it should only last a week or so.  I have been resting on the parlour couch reading a Grace Livingston Hill book, but taking many breaks to give in to much needed slumber. 

Sweet visitors come throughout the day-  One of my daughters and her brood of sweet children.  Their mother comes for coffee, knowing Papa keeps a fresh pot regularly brewing.  I also love their visits, even if I am sound asleep and they wake me up.  It is cheerful to have such special visitors.

It feels like I am in a home hospital, getting plenty of rest, combined with precious family who are as quiet as can be part of the time, yet mostly lovely and loud as is their sweet nature.

I wanted to check in for a quick visit with all of you. I may be gone for awhile, perhaps a few weeks. But will return as soon as I am able.
