I have no brain left to do anything other than fold laundry. Booooo! (I mean, heck, I am folding like Marie Kondo so it's not nothing, and clean underwear and non-spit up covered shirts are my jam, but it sure ain't yarning it up! lol)

Here's hoping I actually get to something "self care" like this weekend that involves yarn. I miss my yarn, and I'm sure it would like some attention. :0)

Oh jeez. Same. I've started working full time just a month ago and I get home and all I can do is catch up on the house stuff and make sure nobody/pets are starving.  Come on weekend!!!

Marshmallow came home from Scotland! And I was really spoiled!

Here are some photos:





There were originally 6 bug gummies but, of course, the kids already ate three lol. And there were more pencils but two were grabbed. I believe the only thing not pictured is a lovely crochet poppy pin that Mire took right away and has gone to a party.
I love the earwarmer headband. I was just looking at a pattern for one bc I'm outside at school/work a lot and it's been freezing so thank you! I'm excited to try the tea and I am over the moon about my little Bilbo Lego magnet!!!!!! My little hero!!

Thank you so much, Kat. And I love all of the detail comments you put in the photo album! Thank you, thank you!! Or should I say, "Merci!" As both Mire and I are learning French as well. Too funny!

Thank you again WildFyre!  I agree - you didn't do anything wrong this round. I hope things are looking up now!
And I'm off to check into the new round. :-)

Headmistress, your shawl is lovely! I remember way back when before you ever crocheted - you are amazing!

I love the TM journal cover! "the Hook is Strong with this One" is simply the best.

That paper weight is super pretty but I am in love with that vase!

Audania1 you may have just solved a mystery for someone in my life with the intro of the "adrenal Fatigue" possibility, so, Thank You!

Yay! I hope so! And I'm glad it helps. It was definitely somebody in my life who put me on to it for myself and my sister.

Class: Herbology  (on Love to Do list)
House: Ravenclaw
Link: These are some of the links I checked out, along with books from my college courses for more information. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AYvqkaJPjCOOmsLxw-yDj792rqrQv3qNO-PzD5n5TmqJ3oz_YfVuCN0/

Project name: Various Tinctures
Description: I made three different tinctures and they are all waiting in the cupboard for various periods of time to come to full potency. The three different ones I made were for Depression (I suffer from that), Adrenal Fatigue (I also suffer from that) and Libido (Ill let you make up your mind.
I didnt want to just post a result of my project though. These things affect many men and women and so I wanted to give a little more insight on it. The main one I want to talk about is Adrenal Fatigue. This (https://www.andreanordling.com/blog/what-is-adrenal-fatigue-and-how-do-i-know-if-i-have-it) is a really good article to read and get you started about thinking if this may be something you are suffering from. Guess what some side effects of adrenal fatigue are? Depression and low Libido. Go figure. It is also a major cause of the inability to lose weight and constant exhaustion.

Now on to tinctures. I am NOT a doctor nor do I play one on the internet. I just love learning and have taken a few college courses on herbalism and have since expanded my studies to help improve my own health and that of my family. Please, talk to your doctor!

I am not going to go into detail on what each herb does in each batch as I feel it is fairly self explanatory. The herbs I put in the Adrenal Fatigue tincture help improve symptoms of and counteract adrenal fatigue. The same goes for depression and libido.

Each will be made in a quart sized glass jar with tight fitting lid and 80 proof brandy. You can use vodka but that constricts the blood vessels while the brandy opens them up, therefore getting into your bloodstream faster and more efficiently.

Adrenal Support:
1 quart size glass jar with tight fitting lid
4 tablespoons ashwaganhda
4 tablespoons eleuthero root
2 tablespoons holy basil
2 tablespoons licorice root
enough 80 proof brandy to fill rest of jar

Depression:
1 quart size glass jar with tight fitting lid
2 tablespoons flax seed
2 tablespoons fennel
2 tablespoons valerian root
4 tablespoons lavender
4 tablespoons gingko,
4 tablespoons nettle
4 tablespoons peppermint
4 tablespoons vervain
4 tablespoons St. Johns Wort
enough 80 proof brandy to fill rest of jar
(may also need a second smaller jar to put some of the mix in if woody parts and roots swell too much. Add more brandy to smaller mix.)




Libido:
1 quart size glass jar with tight fitting lid
3 tablespoons powdered or chopped ginseng
3 tablespoons gingko
3 tablespoons holy basil
3 tablespoons ashwagahnda
3 tablespoons damiana
2 tablespoons fennel seed
3 to 5 slices fresh ginger (or substitute with 3 tablespoons powdered ginger.)

All herbs must go in their jar (or more than one if a lot of root and wood expansion occurs) and cover with brandy to the top of the jar. LABEL YOUR LIDS!! Keep in a dark cool place. Shake daily for the first week or so then a few times a week for the next 6 weeks or longer. Strain and put in dropper bottles. For an adult, a dose is 1 to 3 droppers 1 to 3 times a day.

Whew! Ok, I think thats it!
