I got a call this morning that dude two is sick and if he could come over. Mommy was rushing to get dude one to school and herself to work. Of course, the answer was YES.
I had planned several projects today, including making bone broth in my fairly new electric pressure cooker. That started my homesteading day. Also:
- grinding and mixing chicken feed
- making fire cider
- soaking beans to send home with the dudes
- prepping apples to dehydrate
- starting a batch of apple cider vinegar
- tending to micro greens
- starting mung bean sprouts
- cooking a soup
- and the list goes on
In between, I hang out with the dude, made him tea and tried to help him to feel comfortable. He was pretty hot.
Mid morning, he fell asleep and slept for 4 hours. When he woke up, he ate some and I am hoping the sleep did his healing power.
After he and the cooked beans went home, my friend and I walked to the Farmers Market in Lemon Grove. I picked up 12 Tamales and delivered most of them to the dudes family to eat with the beans.
Long day. I felt a sore throats coming on and did a salt gargle and am pounding vitamins. No time and no fun for getting sick. Wish me luck!!
