It's not only the night shift change anxiety/strain/tension right now, but another death in our family. We got the call last night (Monday) just about 15 minutes prior to Hubby leaving for work. Their family, and ours, could use prayers, uplifting thoughts, and good mojo. We lost our great nephew's father. We just lost our great nephew in late January, and now his father (my husband's nephew). The great nephew was only 21 years old. I am not certain, but I think our nephew was in his early 40's. Last year we buried my husband's sister, mother to this nephew.
Flustered and in no shape to crochet, I had a baby yarn disaster last night too. I messed up, pulled out two rows, but in the process of putting the rows back in, created the worst mess of a knot. I went in search of help from a daughter, who tried her best to unravel it. To no vail, we cut the yarn. I put it away for now, but will need to take out a half of a row, and re-attach the yarn. Sigh. I'm just in no condition to crochet for a day or two.
I started my first herbal infused witch hazel. It will be interesting to see if it helps for the purpose I made it for.
Homemade shampoo was restocked.
A jar of nettle hair tonic was brewed.
A liniment was started, which was made with apple cider vinegar vs. rubbing alcohol or witch hazel. It will be another interesting experiment.
An herbal infused oil was started for another purpose. Again, an experimental oil, which I could find no testimonies (which is very typical now-a-days) with, but felt worth trying.
To leave you with happy news - I have chickweed growing. I won't harvest it just yet, but I'm super excited for spring weeds. I need to restock all of them. Chickweed, if you haven't eaten it, does not tolerate refrigeration so it's best to pick and eat fresh.
It's 27°F this morning, and by Friday the weather man states we'll get a high of 73°F. The onslaught of rain starts the following Saturday. Crazy weather every where this year.
