I just realized that I hadn't yet named the infection in my leg (no, not Eliza or Mary) - it's cellulitis. This website should help answer any questions you may have. My leg closely follows the pattern described on this site.
We've enjoyed a lovely afternoon. Aaron is at a staff meeting right now, but earlier he read a portion of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" while we ate snickerdoodles (made by Olivia and Sarah - I'm still off my feet) and drank an assortment of delicious Christmas teas. Now the big kids are outside playing, and Katherine and I are inside playing. Spaghetti, eggplant, salad, and pineapple are on the menu for tonight. So, there's a taste of our afternoon!
