I had a unexpected day off work yesterday and it was absolutely beautiful outside! So I worked in the yard, raking leaves and pulling weeds. I love dandelions and usually leave them alone but this year they have invaded my flowerbeds so I was pulling them too. There were so many I decided that I would make some dandelion syrup and some dandelion root tincture. Dandelion root is suppose to be a very good purifier for the liver and with all of the meds I have to take for the "Fybromylgia" I need all the help I can get. The tincture won't be ready for 6 months though so I'll have to buy some somewhere for now.
Looking forward to trying out the dandelion syrup over the weekend. It sure is a pretty color of gold.
Unlike my hands when I was done picking the dandelions :(
I also pick a small bunch of violets for some tincture of violets. They sure look pretty floating in that vodka :) Forgot to take a pic of the violets.
I baked a cake for a birthday party...tried out a Martha Stewart recipe... sorry Martha it taste ok but not as moist as I like cakes. Will have to tweak it if I bake it again. Still have to finish decorating but I ran of frosting and energy.
Today I can hardly move.....way to much gardening for one day I guess. But I enjoyed every minute of it and I will stop hurting someday so it was worth it. If I didnt' do anything because it might hurt I'd be one miserable individual. I'd rather be "mentally happy" and hurt physically.
