Sigh -- It smells so good. Relaxes the mind and the body. I clipped it, put the flowers in a container to dry, and the stems I put into another container to perhaps begin to make essential oil with.
Searching I find several ways to capture the oil from the Lavendar. Some of it tells me that I need a gas stove [yeah right!] I think I will do it another way. I know that there are oils in the stems and the leaves --- mmmmmmm.
Don't want to waste a bit of it. Even tho I know it is early in the season, still don't want to waste any.
Rick -- Bless him. Found me a shelf unit that I can use for my holiday bazaar's that I plan on participating in this year. Fold up shelves that can be accessed from either side. I think that the yard sale people he found it at did retail for a while. He said that they used it to display seeds. how wonderful is that?! as I plan to use it for my Lavender and Rice bags --
Today was really a good good day -- not only did I get to see my Faerie [Connie] and my dear partner found me something really useful. But another friend - who I had almost given up on [and i was thinking really hard about her today - thinking that i needed to send her an email asking what was wrong, and had she given up on me] -- txt and we talked it out. I am glad to have my friend back.. I hope that she understands that I try never to pass judgement on her or anyone, for that matter. We plan to have coffee next week .. I sure could use some right now even :)
Iron Horse Restaurant --
Had coconut Fried Shrimp - chips and salsa - a to die for salad and Rice. Ice tea to top if off. Yummmmm
Rick had Jambalaya -- He said it was really really good.
Rick's ex wife never cared for the Iron Horse -- but then she doesn't know much about much - otherwise she wouldn't have set him free now would she have :) Just sayin ........
But then again - if she hadn't set him free - He wouldn't have me, nor I him - and that would be a sad state of affairs huh.
