This morning when we woke up, we found a huge bundle of flowers on the front porch! What a delightful surprise considering that most of us feel rotten. I found out at market that Isabella brought them early last night but found all of our lights off, so she just left them on the porch.
We had a tiny bit of rain overnight, so the tank now sits at 15 inches. Since all of the grownups in our family are running a fever, we are taking turns hauling buckets up the hill.
Grace came by late this morning while I was making banana cake. She had also come by last night and found our lights off, but she had caught and cleaned some squid, havigo, to share with us. I cut them into thin slices and sauteed them with onion and a little bit of coconut oil. It was delicious!
