Spring is in the Air... Well kinda

Every flowering bush or tree has started its beautiful explosion of color. I love to see all the beauty that surrounds us this time of year.

 My Easter Lilly Well.... This is what I woke up to this morning... '0' I was so surprised. I absolutely love the snow but now my horses will have no apples again this summer Grrrrrrrr poor baby's. If it wasn't illegal to feed them I would put apples out morning and night, but we have had to many wild horses killed because they get spooked by cars and then get run over.

 below the tree in the middle is one of the apple trees... It just started to bud
My husky loves to roll around in the snow... My Shi Tzu would stay inside all day if he didn't have to... well you know what dogs do lol
See all my pretty flowers... aw... too bad they will all be gone when the snow stops in three days. Over night we went from no snow to eight inches and it's not suppose to stop until Wednesday

Inspired by this lovely lady

Organic Honey w/Lemon and Ginger

I will not list all the benefits you get from honey, Lemons and Ginger but I know it helps nausea, has antibacterial properties and helps your skin. So when my mother had surgery and the pain meds made her nausiated I made us both a batch.

Little did I know that I would need it myself this morning . I was very pleasantly surprised how fast the nausea subsided and then went away.

I took a generous table spoonful of the honey mix added it to a cup of hot water.
A couple sips later and I received relief and by the time the cup was empty... The nausea was gone! Yay... Nausea is the worst

Here is a link to instructions on Pinterest the are petty much the same.

The only note I would add is turning the jar a couple times a week will keep it mixed also stir it before use. It will last two months in the refrigerator... Good stuff
