The ladies have been generous lately, so we had breakfast for dinner - egg/sausage burritos. The vegetarians cooked up some extra firm tofu (organic/non-gmo), and added that to their burrito.
I've been enjoying more herbal teas. No big news there. This one was lemongrass/clove tea. I'm down to the last quart jar of my wild picked nettle too.
As for mousers this cold snap? Chickens: 2, Barn Cats: 1, Mouse trap: 1
Hubby got my frozen barn door free, and now the ladies can get some well deserved sunshine without freezing their feet off in the tundra.
Evidently, there were some northerners who went into panic mode this last weekend (fearing a blizzard). The feed store was almost completely out of non-gmo/organic chicken feed. I was able to get a 10 lb. bag until the restock.
I made some homemade "Lysol" wipes using a good brand of paper towels, water, rubbing alcohol, and dawn soap. I would like to make a "roll" of washable towels, but these are working out nicely. There are many versions of making these on the interent too.
We restocked the firewood, but as I helped Hubby toss it all into the truck bed, I sprained my elbow. Of all places on my body, my elbow. So, this morning my challenge is to make myself a poultice of comfrey using dry comfrey. I've always used fresh. I'll let you know how it works out.
My resume is pretty much written, but references are another thing. Our 19 year-old daughter has dropped her classes, and returned home, and has already applied for a two year college near home. The good news is that the two year program (Vet technician), has dropped their tuition by $10,000. The bad news? It will cost us $21,000.00 for the course (books included). She's job hunting as well.
I've been downing raw garlic to kill off any "sinus" infection (and anything else) that may be brewing. It's a win-win solution. The garlic kills off, and in the process makes you super thirsty, so you drink more, flushing more out. I've managed to fill my empty capsules with the raw garlic for easier swallowing, but it is a challenge to get it done quickly, as the raw garlic dampens the capsule making it difficult to fill. By the way, hand filling empty capsules has been easier than using the capsule machine. I'm downing probiotics (kefir) too, as the garlic kills, I need to replenish the good bacteria too.
I better get this posted. I need to get that poultice on my elbow so I can function today - walking dogs, carrying chicken water, and just plain lifting hurts.
