I've had 4 days off but had to go into work yesterday. It suited me fine because I was beginning to get a little house-burnt. How are you all surviving the Winter? Are you doing anything special to fill your time. I've made lots of teas, canned more meat and broth and have gotten a little more organized but today I'm going to the herb kitchen to prepare and refill all of my herb blends and salt substitute containers. That will take most of the day but it will be such a joy. While I'm preparing my blends I will have plenty of time to consider how I want to organize the herb program I will be giving in August. I'm going to be giving a program on herb drying and preservation methods. This is going to be a very exciting program. There is so much involved in preserving herbs and so many methods useful for both culinary means, medicinal use or crafting. I will focus primarily on culinary and medicinal and hit crafting lightly. There's so much to take into consideration, figuring out where to start will be a major job!
We are taking our computer in to have it cleaned and checked out this week and I will probably not be back online until sometime next week. You all keep warm and I'll talk to you soon.
