Sleeping In…

Okay…sleeping in is a stretch. I woke up before eight but refused to get out of bed until almost ten. I took different parts of my life and played the scenario game while I refused to open my eyes. Some scenarios surprised me? Until I remembered that moment at book club where I relayed cute kilt guy who made me remember I am alive….One or two of those scenarios played around this memory. Most of them were ancestral though….in a big way. Some even had the quality of medium…which I did not sign up for, that is KB. That is her future…not mine.

I had things I “had” to do today but the only thing I wanted to do was try and make Pajama pants. It looks like that will be a tomorrow thing…I never made it there today. I did get a lot done but no where near what I needed to get done. Progress is still progress.

Today was a big Fire Cider day and who was I to argue? I do have to say….grating horseradish root is way worse on the eyes than onions….

This little contraption from Tupperware made the garlic and onions much easier and is my go to chopper…

The almost final result….

Next month right before the full moon…I will strain the herbs and add the honey and make this a true herbal remedy. I added cayenne, cinnamon sticks, and echinacea flower buds to the mix. Whatever it takes to keep the germs at bay… Let’s be real though….it’s going to taste awful! That won’t stop me from taking it when I feel… a bit weak…I will most certainly make faces before I choke it down.

Today has been a day of getting things done…only the necessary…no dilly dallying. I just finished gutting five pie pumpkins. The Girl wanted to experiment with opening the bottom rather than the top? Who knows what she will end up doing with the carving pumpkins? It’s too early to tell. I do know that I have five pie pumpkins worth of seeds in the oven right now. I think that is it for this year…it was good while it lasted…Zia
