home, hearth, and health
I'm back, since Monday night. It's been a steady week of school, laundry and preparing for our Octoberfest/12th birthday for my eldest daughter. Today we decorated our new garage for the party, as the weather report is less than encouraging for our planned outdoor party. But, it looks festive and cozy, and it's not supposed to be cold, just rainy. We will have about 60-70 people here, with brats, stew, apple dumplings and pumpkin pie. Everyone will bring a dish to pass to fill out the menu. It'll be loads of fun!
The ladies get away was terrific fun, and as I had hoped, full of food and wine, chocolate, shopping and heart-to-heart talks. It could easily been twice as long, but we figure we'll just have to do it again before an entire year goes by. When I get pictures from my sister-in-law, I'll share.
Anyway, I don't have more time than this, so I'm off to shop for our party food, and then have a nice hot toddy when I return (I'm fighting off this nasty cold everyone has).
1 quarter lemon, juiced into a mug.
one good 3 second squeeze of honey
one good 3 second pour of Maker's Mark Whiskey
Fill mug with boiling water.
Stir, Inhale healing steam, then sip the healing liquid. Get a blankie, get cozy, and enjoy the medicine!!!
