There is a nip in the air this morning but the sun is out and clothes will go on the line.  A friend is coming down to load her truck up with manure so that will be gone.  Yea!!!!!

WONDERFUL WOOL

A couple of days ago these wonderful English Leicester fleeces were left on my porch by a friend Ceacy.

ONION CARRIER

A few years ago I decided to make this wonderful Onion basket.  I was making a smaller version to hold garlic in.  I never used it because of little counter space.  So it was hung up.  Now with the renovations I have a perfect place for it.

IT’S TIME TO MAKE THE WINTER TONIC

With cod and flu season upon us its time to make my favorite tonic.  I have it brewing in the fridge and will start taking it today.  For those of you who would like to make it, here is what I do.

1 lomon sliced thinly

1 piece of ginger (at least 2 inches long) sliced or diced thinly

honey

A smallish jelly jar works well for this.  I layer lemon/ginger etc and then cover with honey.  Place in the fridge and I take a teaspoon every day.  

Hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.   CaroleIMG_6018Waxed Oak leaves and Bttersweet
