New Ladies Study

100_5254

This is the new Friday Ladies Study.  I think it will be really good.  We have done one by this lady before.  The study of Ruth.  It was a really good so hopefully this one will be also.  I love starting new studies-so exciting.

We are getting some rain today with high winds.  I hung the clothes on the line outside but we had to hurry out and get them when the rain started.  They got about half way dry though before that happened.  Temperature is extremely warm for us, 57 degrees.  I love warmer temps.  Everything is starting to get green already.  We traveled to a little town close by Saturday, Rocky Mount.  On the way we saw some forsynthias blooming and a few Easter Lillies.  We also saw fields that were really green.  Very exciting. 

Lunchbreak is almost over and I haven’t even ate yet.  I better get off this computer and get busy eating.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

What Should I Do With This?

I know.  I’ll make tea.  Yes, it is sassafras root.  We found quite a lot of it up on the hill where we cut wood.  They had pushed over a few sassafras trees so we got the roots, brought them down and made tea.  First you wash the root.  They usually are pretty dirty.

Then I broke them into smaller pieces.  Put into a kettle with water.  I used about 1 1/2 qts of water to this amount of roots.  Bring water to a boil and let simmer for about 15 min.  Then strain the water, add sweetener of your choice and you have a delicious cup of tea.  We love it.  It is probably Hubby’s favorite.

We went to visit Jessica over the weekend.  They have much warmer temperatures than we do.  They have some forsynthias that are already blooming.  Her Easter lillies are almost ready to open up.  We even saw some creeping phlox blooming.  Then we came home, temperature was 34 degrees, very overcast.  YUCK!  We even had a slight dusting of snow this morning.  I don’t want to complain though.  I am working on enjoying the seasons without complaint.   It is still cold but the sun has come out so that makes it all seem so much nicer.

Lunch break is over.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
