Honey and Lemon


The sun is finally shining, which is fabulous, typically expected we have an Indian Summer. Typically I now have a cold, which has zapped my creative juices, so I have spent the last few days feeding my obsession with arranging my art and craft bits and bobs, due to my creative yet chaotic mind I strive to have some order and try to work in a methodical manner. I become irritated when I cannot find what I am looking for and end up making a big mess and quickly lose momentum. So here is the result of hours of sorting!!!! They look very pretty, but I do think I am bordering on having OCD!!


Colds must be the most irritating of common ailments, and so easily prevented if I consumed more vitamin C. So to quickly get the cold out of my system I am using my dear mothers recipe of honey and lemon in hot water. I intend to continue drinking this when the cold has gone , as it must be healthier than the silly amount of tea and coffee I normally drink.

Airborne, Zicam and homemade soup. And you'd better sip some whiskey tonight to kill whatever might be lingering still. Feel better soon.

I always feel so much better when my creative space is organized too. It looks great and you probably have tons of inspiration now. I LOVE honey lemon and hot water. As soon as I feel something coming on I start drinking it.

I always have hot tea in the morning, so when I feel illness coming on I just add more honey and lemon :) The buttons DO look great...I love seeing things organized in jars.
