Just an Update…

I have started getting the signs of a cold coming on.  We have Randy’s Christmas party this weekend so it is no time to be sick.  I am taking Echinacea/Goldenseal morning/night, Vitamin C 1000 mg morning, and Elderberry concentrate with ½ cup orange juice morning.  I have also been putting eucalyptus and tea tree oil in our humidifier which seems to be helping at night.  Randy says our room smells like pine needles, but a small price to pay for good health.

Our little kitten, Spooky, has been sick pretty much since we got him.  I took him to a third vet on Friday.  She thinks his little system has been overloaded with antibiotics, so you know what she prescribed?  Yogurt, I was so impressed.  She thinks he just needs to rebuild the good bacteria in his system, and he will be good as new.  She just became our full-time cat doctor.  We like to use as many vets as we can, so if there is an emergency we have them all “on call.”  Our dogs use one, our sheep and llama use another, and our cats now use another.

I saw a fox on my way to work.  I tried to get a picture, but it was gone by the time I turned the car around and got situated.  Foxes are kind of rare for our area, but it was so neat to see one with its big poofy tail.  We also had a chubby little possum in our front yard this morning when I walked out.  I think they are so cute in and ugly kind of way.  He waddled as fast as his little stubby legs would carry him into the pine trees.  Too cute.

We had a Nourishing Traditions soup last night.  I will try to remember to post it, it was good.  Our menu rotation (2 week-rotation) is going well so far.  We get messed up here and there, but for the most part it is working.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
