....that word again ~ Random Tidbits
Maybe it's two words - unfinished projects.
I've gotten too many irons in the fire lately, and need to stop myself and regroup. And I'm only talking about the fun stuff, not the daily to-do list.
The daily inbox teasers do not help either.
This one arrived from my sister-in-law:
A crocheted door wreath. How fun, right?
This arrived recently too:
I have wanted to make a granny square bag for a while, but have a ton of bags already. Maybe I'll put this on my list for a gift idea.
I just get so many good, fun, want-to-make-it ideas, that I get myself into an overwhelming mess. I think they call that an addiction of sorts, ha ha!
Time to re-group, get one thing done first, then move on. Good thing it's raining today.
Yesterday I put a bucket of water out the door, to get it out of my way and put on muck boots.
There a a bit of a distance from where the goats are and the door, and when the water bucket tapped the bucket making a teensy sound, Misty flipped her head around quickly and looked directly me. Last weekend they were spooked badly and have been on edge ever since.
I declare. This Spring is terrible in regards to allergies. It appears that mine are at their worst with me when we have a lot of wind. I woke up to coughing, swollen lymph nodes, runny nose, watery eyes. I took my herbal mixture, and within minutes, I could breathe better. I'll have to mix up some hot ginger tea today too.
I borrowed this book from the library. There are recipes in it too. Did you know you can make beer from burdock and dandelions? There is a recipe in this book for that too.
