My oldest just told me, "my tummy doesn't feel very good", so I did a forehead check and he's warm. I have him settled on the couch, wrapped in his quilt (a friend of ours made it for him before he was born), sipping some electrolyte solution I made up since he isn't really interested in eating. I'm going to join him for while and hope that helps a bit.

My circle of friends and coworkers have started having babies. It's really an epidemic. The closest friends get a handmade quilt. My sister is the latest to announce her pregnancy, and I am waiting to find out boy or girl and the nursery decor before I choose one to make. She may find out Wednesday.

Glad to hear he is feeling better.

What do you put in your electroclyte solution?

What do you put in your electroclyte solution?

Here's how I make it up:

8 oz. water (room temp best)

1/4 tsp. baking soda

pinch salt

2 tsp. sugar, honey, or maple syrup

Mix until everything is dissolved. If there is trouble keeping things down, I offer by the spoonful every few minutes or so, then move up to larger amounts. Otherwise it subs for juice or milk or other fluids really well since there it has very little taste.

I drink this when I'm really sick, and it does down easily. It's nice to have something I can make up at any time, in any amount, instead of running to the store.

Dinner finished:

This is my Grandma's Chicken Tchakhokbelli, a recipe of unknown origen. I'm guessing the baked potato isn't representative of whatever part of the world this dish came from, but it's delicious all the same. Pure comfort food.

My oldest is up and looked at the monitor, grimaced, and asked if that was an onion he saw. He's feeling much better now :smile:.

Thanks, tejon. This was another blog where I had to ask myself "It's over already?" :smile:

Is the red color in the peach cobbler only from the red part of the peaches near the pits, or did you also include something else red in it?

Thank you - I really enjoyed this last week. The red is just from the part near the pits - this batch of peaches seemed to be very dark right at the center.
