Hot homemade pumpkin soup and toast. Just the thing for a cold winter day.
I am not usually at home on weekdays, but winter colds and chills have made their appearance, and I seem to have spent more time at home with sick children than in my office of late. Fortunately, academic work is very portable, and the dining table is a good substitute for my desk at work.
Miss Ten, who is ill, declined soup, and given that she is feeling poorly, I didn’t insist.
