We’re going viral over here.
As in the first cold of 2013. If we were a meme, it would sound like Jeff’s snoring symphony of congestion. It would look like me clinging to the last 1/8″ of the family bed with Fern curled up against my back like a bundle of elbows and knees, the boogers in her nose rattling out Latin music.
I can imagine these guys are having a similar experience, sans boogers.
We went back to Ardenwood Farms with the whole gang (Jeff, Leo, Uncle Shaners).
We are speeding recovery along with Mommy’s Medicinal Lemonade.
Mommy’s Medicinal Lemonade
Squeeze your lemon half into a tea cup. Add tincture and fill with hot water. Dissolve syrup or honey and drink to the last drop.
(You could substitute apple cider vinegar, or powdered vitamin C for the lemon).
We are down to the last 1/4 of the bottle of my Elderberry Syrup, and while I will be trying my hand at this rockin’ recipe, it won’t be ready for a month, along with the scary ass Fire Cider that is steeping on the counter.
I’ve managed to ward off The Sickness so far, but I almost hope I get it in a month or so, just so I can dose myself up with homemade remedies.
Speaking of viruses and bacterias and Susun Weed’s limitless collection of head bands, this video is great for explaining why bacteria fighters like echinacia and elderberry are still vital when you have a virus.
How was your weekend?
p.s. Quite a few of you requested the recipe for homemade mochi…that’ll be coming up this week!
