We all have the flu, flu, flu

(to the tune of "We're going to the zoo")
We all have the flu, flu, flu,
How about you, you, you?
You can cough too, too, too.
We all have the flu, flu, flu.

Seriously, it started with Adele as we drove down to Jeffrey's parents' last week.  Then it was me and Gilad simultaneously.  Now Kayla has it.  Either we have a different strain from what was in the vaccine this winter, or else it would be even worse than this without vaccination (no one has yet wound up with pneumonia, ear infections, bronchitis, sinus infection, etc, so that may be it).  Many plans have been changed, many cups of warm drinks have been drunk.

The kids all got new Wii games at their grandparents'.  Since most accidentally got left behind (the fault of the shop, not ours) and just arrived now, I don't know how many of them will go, but I can report that the new Nickolodeon kids' WiiFit game is a big hit with Feivel, Addie, and Gilad.  Go, Diego, go!

I've finished knitting a scarf for the shop (pattern if Raha from Knitted Lace of Estonia; yarn is Spud and Chloe Fine wool & silk):

And a hopefully indestructible sweater for Feivel (he'll find a way, I know):

Carodan Farms wool undyed, dyed in coffee, and dyed in osage orange; sweater pattern is original

I hope the flu flies away quickly-- we got hit here too... the scarf is beautiful! i hope feivel gets much use from the warm-and-cozy-looking sweater...
