It's done at last, my crocheted Mile-a-Minute afghan. It's folded here, so you can't see that it's twelve strips wide, but it is. Have a big, beautiful banana baby buggy, Y'all. They're delicious; I'm making these mints for a baby shower that our youngest is hostessing this weekend. I'll show you a pic of the bears, bottles and pins next time. :) They're fun to make. The grandgals beg to get to help make them. Don't tell them it's work.
The plant I mentioned a few posts ago is mullein. It grows just about anywhere, especially along the roadside. It's great for putting an end to the terrible hacking & coughing that comes with colds and flu. I dry the leaves, crumble, and store them in a tin; then when the cold winds blow I'm ready and can make a tea with them. I use 1 tsp. mullein per cup of boiling water; steep 5 mins. and flavor with honey and lots of lemon. There's an abundance of herbs just outside the door just waiting for us to check them out. Have an herb-y week, Y'all.
