It has been weeks!.......What have we been up to? I think we caved to the February funk......killer colds, frigid wind chills.....

We have been staying busy doing projects

reading books, taking baths, baking

It was years before I understood what it was really about! ......and the pancakes we made were nothing like the plump pancakes that we have for breakfast here in New England, they were a thin crepe-like pancake usually eaten with lemon and sugar and on a very lucky day a scoop of vanilla ice cream! On tuesday Zoe helped me make her favorite breakfast pancake with a mixed berry sauce and maple whipped cream! A dinner we both enjoyed! Then read
