As for me? I woke up at 4am freezing cold. I knew at that point I was the next to get the sickness (that our 15 year-old brought home from a sleepover). My temperature was 101.4 and I am not feeling so well.
I'm finding out that all of the kids that were at that sleepover got sick, and I am not sure if they are all well yet.
I had most of my blog written out last night, so you get the joy of reading it today. I figured if I got myself up, I might as well post something.
Don't worry, I'm heading back to bed after I sanitize the keyboard with my Thieves oil spray. I do regret not making a batch of elixir yesterday, and not making a jar of homemade ginger ale syrup. We are going to need both today.
Hubby was hankering for a meatloaf and mashed potatoes. He was evidently hankering a lot, because instead of bringing home three pounds of meat, he brought home six. Six!
Instead of one meatloaf, I made two, so we are well supplied this week. In fact, so well supplied, I didn't have to cook the next night.
I do have to mention, when I went to slice potatoes, I realized there was not enough for us. Then, I remembered our canned (home canned) potatoes. I popped open one jar, rinsed them, and added them directly to the pot with the freshly cut potatoes. It worked perfectly.
With a kiddo home sick, and not able to eat much, and the roads in bad condition, I baked homemade graham crackers for her.
I used a mini cookie cutter to cut some hearts into the cracker dough. They were super cute, and a fun (and healthy) idea for Valentine's Day.
Update: Photo of the heart crackers
While that baked, I brewed an pot of herbal eye health tea with bilberries.
I mixed up another batch of homemade hand lotion too. Although I really wanted to add cayenne extract, I used two other essential oils for sore joints. If it works well, I'll share it. I looked up the prices for cayenne extract, but the store I buy from was sold out of 1 oz. bottles. A 4 oz. bottle was just over $30. Yikes. I'll wait.
