Four pints of yogurt went into my dehydrator. This was the first time using my dehydrator for this purpose. Worked like a charm. I got beautifully thick, creamy yogurt. I can do this over night, let it shut off automatically, and pop them into the 'fridge the next morning.
Two of us woke up with sore throats. I, myself, went straight for the salt water gargle and my mullein tincture (stuffy nose). I had a miserable day with it all.
Oh, I pushed to get two loads of laundry done, took the dogs out, dealt with frozen goat water buckets, and all the while I just wanted a hot cup of herbal tea. When I got back from the vet, I finally got the tea made, but tossed the leaves in before the filter. I cleaned it out and made it again, only to see the water spilling out of the bottom all over the counter. I didn't get the filter in tight. Third time I got it right, but the kids were already home. No peace and quiet with my tea.
If I typed it out, and said it out loud then it has to become true. Right?
It's a snow day today. As I sit here and wait for the house to heat up again, I hear my 17 year-old coughing badly. I just refilled my tin of mullein. And I'll be whipping up some chest rub, and getting my homemade vapo-rub out. I sure hope my teas, tinctures, and pushing fluids will do the job for all of us. And rest. And a salt water gargle. Right now the kids have a 2 hour delay, but it would do us all good if they closed. We all need a day of rest right now. I just found out another extended family member has pneumonia. It looks like a good night for home canned tomato soup and sandwiches. I would have loved some chicken noodle, but I'm not up to cooking today.
