Surprise!!! I'm still Alive and Kicking :)
I've actually been around a lot...just on my art blog and not over here.
So I decided that I would do a T Stands for Tuesday post here today.
This winter I am really enjoying mixing my own herbal teas to take the chill off and help with what ever is bothering me at the moment. I mixed up a new one this week that I really enjoy.. As most of you know I have had fybromyalgia for many years and have gone up and down and back and forth with different methods of treatments. The past 2 years I have been focusing on a more natural life style and healthier diet and it really seems to be helping . So this weeks tea was geared toward helping with the inflammation and pain associated with my condition . I used a mix of Turmeric, ginger, cayenne pepper, sage,rosemary and lemon peel. I sweeten it with a dab of honey and it really is quite pleasant tasting with just a little heat from the cayenne . The ginger and turmeric do help me with pain and I have been adding them to a lot of the drinks I make and my food. I take less pain medications these days and that's a good thing.
So I'm enjoying my tea...dreaming of warm summer days while gardening plans are whirling around in my head . If I think hard enough I can almost feel the sunshine and smell the herbs growing.
