Alas, the bonfire and feast await a better day.  My dear husband came down with a positively vile stomach bug and has been laid low all day.  It was perhaps a bit cruel to prepare the celebratory Michaelmas brunch while he languished, but the children were already fairly upset that we would have to forgo the evening’s festivities.

Tonight we dine on leftover turkey and rice.  Hubby is already feeling a bit better and is, God willing, on the mend.  Perhaps later this week we’ll serve the duck and light the fire.  Until then, happy Michaelmas and wash your hands thoroughly…
