Oops- I lied.
I did not make Herbal Iron Syrup yesterday, and I didn't blog it. (Logically, obviously.) Sorry. But it wasn't really a lie; it was an accident.
And I didn't make the syrup today because I spent the day in the forest with my family. And I may not make it tomorrow because I may just go back to the forest and lay on a blanket and watch the sky.
So we'll be making our elderberry syrup and cloved oranges and Iron Syrup and Pre-Conception Tincture (? yes, we do hope so), batches of soup of all kinds, breads, and then sugarless Christmas treats.
All while we are stuck inside for, what, say, 5 months?
OK, I need to work on my attitude, and I need to suck it up and buy some long underwear that don't bunch up, right? It's really hard to find long underwear that fit a 6-foot-tall lady.
So while I think more on that, I hope you are out enjoying the changing seasons with your little people, collecting leaves and wildflowers, reading under a tree somewhere, and not dreading the upcoming winter. (Ya, I really do not love the cold, can you tell?)
"Besides the autumn poets sing,
A few prosaic days
A little this side of the snow
And that side of the haze."
