Friday coffee done right. Honey + vanilla + chocolate mallow by @apothekerskitchen 💗💗☕☕✨✨
Orchid with a view. I figured she would enjoy the humidity in the (finished!) bathroom. Plus, I just love having plants in the bathroom - is that weird? It seriously makes me happy every time I walk up the stairs and see this view. (Thank you @elizabethduvivier - I am in love with how long her blossoms last!)
Really proud of my husband today. This is the makings of FURLOUGH FAJITAS - he's cooking lunch for his office mates - celebrating not being paid today with his fellow USCG members. His hope is to remind everyone that even though the govt is a mess - we still have each other's back. (We did not buy the ingredients - the money to buy this food is from his unit's morale fund - which can only be used for events like this, which encourage positive morale among USCG members - I can't think of a better time to boost morale 😔) #shutdownstories #paythecoastguard #wereallinthistogether #family #uscg #semperparatus
Cozy morning. Smiling at last year's Christmas gift from my oldest girl (mug) and this year's gift from my youngest girl (jammies). They know their mama well. I have a zillion things calling my attention today, but I'm starting right here to center my intention. And caffeinate myself before I start drinking tea to soothe my nerves - 😂 because coffee isn't going to help them out much, but gosh it does soothe my soul.
I've made over two gallons of Elderberry Syrup this week and more is simmering as I type this. This recipe is my favorite one yet. It has astragalus and reishi added to it - which doesn't change the flavor but definitely ups the immune system nourishment. I have a limited edition of these in the shop for pre-order. Place your order by Wednesday 1/16 and fresh syrup will be headed your way by Friday 1/18! This blend nourishes your immune system to help fight off virus and flu germs + it's high in antioxidants + vitamin c. You can take it daily as a preventative and double the dosage and take 3-4 times daily when you're under the weather. It really works! It needs to be refrigerated upon arrival and used in 6 months. So far, local moms have told me their kids love it - even picky ones! (Ingredients : *elderberries, *rosehips, *astragalus, *reishi, *hibiscus, *cinnamon chips, *ginger, *cloves, raw local honey) *organic ingredient. Safe for ages 2+ due to the raw honey.

Red blossoms in January? Yes please. I brought this geranium in last fall. I've found the trick to keeping her happy is to water her about every two weeks. The soil needs to get pretty dry in between waterings. I think I'll keep this up - bringing geraniums in for winter - flowers in January make me smile.... . . . p.s. Thank you all for the support on the last post. 😘😘 . . . #geranium #redflowers #indoorplants #letthelightin #morningsun #winterlight #red
