I have been buried beneath sickness, laundry and a pile of dishes (that somehow included every bowl we own) today. The oldest did not return to school with his classmates, but rather lay on the couch beneath a blanket attempting to rest and fend off his siblings interest. Rather than focusing on my own runny nose, I thought I would share a few images from the gem festival on the weekend. So many colours, shapes and textures. So beautiful.
