Aur, week#24

Like the rest of us, Aur was sick for a few days. Unlike the rest of us – she was silent enough to listen to her body and follow her needs.
When we went skiing (while being sick. winter is too short to miss a ski day) she went for a few runs and said: "ski makes my illness suffer". I think this phenomenon is called adrenalin.
While being sick she was weak and not very active but she spent time outside more than ever. As if her body asks for cool fresh air. She would sit outside, quietly and just wait.
Her daily rhythm of long inhales and short exhales changed according to her needs and after a few deep inhales she simply got better.


In the place where her English lessons are taking place, she found a periscope. She was very excited about it and played with it for a few days. Her wonderful teacher even combined it into one of her lessons.
She asked us to buy her one and we told her we can build one and got her 2 small mirrors for a start.
Like other small items – those mirrors got lost in the mess but before that she had two wonderful days of mirror-writing and through-mirror reading.


Normally when one of the girls asks for cookies I just go and bake some. While I was sick I couldn't sense the difference between an apple and an onion and had no interest in both of them. That's why when Aur came and told me she wants cookies I told her: go and bake them yourself.

I asked her to bring a pen and a paper and wrote down the recipe.
Then I wrote it again, this time more readable (I hope none of my girls inherited my handwriting).
And then, in a wink, within 8 hours the cookies were ready.

No. They were not yeast cookies or anything demands long waiting or hard work. The only thing with those cookies was one sick mother who, for the first time in her life, didn't interfere in someone else's kitchen business.
No kidding. 8 hours.
But she did it all by herself: measured the ingredients, read a book, mixed them, played card game, called dad to grind the wheat into flour, wrote a letter, formed the cookies, played a role playing game, turned on the oven and the timer and baked the cookies. And they were perfect!
