This has been a lovely day, so far. I got up at 7:30, did taichi & yoga, & it felt so good to have time to just breath & stretch. Then it was out to the garden, where I picked a carrot, a parsnip, some egyptian walking onions, a radish, a few turnips, some tomatoes & peppers, & dandelion greens. My garden is a mess! I’ve had so little time, it really is a wreck, with tall weeds everywhere. I’m gonna try to get out there next week & get at least part of it under control, but I guess when winter comes all the weeds will die, & I can start next spring with a clean slate, LOL. Meanwhile, it is still producing! I have lots of fresh herbs, all of the aforementioned veggies, the fall raspberries are starting to come on (I ate the first small handful), & there are sweet potatoes, crowder peas, brussells, & butternut squash that will be ready soon.
I came in & made a pot of root veggie stew for breakfast, using some homemade chicken stock from my freezer, & added a cut up chicken thigh. I love soup for breakfast, and I got to sample the first cup of my continuous brew Kombucha! Yay! I’ll never buy the bottle kind again, cuz it is SO much more amazing! It actually reminded me of a fizzy apple cider :)
Teas I drank today:
Multiple steepings of Imperial Mojian – YS
I shared a pot of Two Tigers with wedding clients during their consultation – Devotea
A large mug of Elderberry brew, fairly strong.
And now this one, a much hoarded Wuyi oolong. I’ve reviewed it plenty of times, & it really is very nice: roasty, fruity, with a heady aroma that rises into the sinuses & lingers.
