Every day is a struggle for me. I do my very best to stay positive and upbeat. But sometimes I just shut down. September seemed like a quiet month overall. I was definitely not at my best.
Oh, check out our new aprons. 🙂
With the heat sensitivities, I haven’t been able to do much at all outdoors this summer on the farm. It’s been driving me nuts because we have so many grand plans. Finally, we are starting to see a handful of cooler days (less than 90 degrees, some even less than 80 degrees)! As it cools down I can be outside on my good days and we can finally begin making progress! 🙂 I’ve hated this year, we missed winter (90 degrees in February???), there was no spring to speak of (alternating between 90 and 20 degrees every few days is not spring!). The strange summer temps in the winter and spring caused our fruit trees to bloom just in time for freezes to kill them off. Annuals were behaving like perennials since it was so warm. So weird!
Once a month cooking! Ok, well, once a quarter? Twice a year cooking? We’ll see! lol. Cooking over 120 meals almost at once. I’m beyond worn out.
I’ve decided, I now want this and all associated accessories available in the world. lol
Lots and lots of essential oils!
My Melaleuca page
Random volunteer zucchinis! Yikes, what do I do with all of these zucchinis!?!?!?
Prepping for fall. I’m so glad that we’re only doing medicinal herbs. Most are perennials. Heck, most are weeds! lol. And weeds grow like…..weeds! 🙂 Planting in the fall and we’ll see what happens. The worst thing would be having to order more seeds in the spring. lol!
So, the title story…
The scene: In the car on the way to market one Saturday morning.
Kevin mentions that he grabbed a couple of extra ounces of Lemon Balm for a customer that requested it specifically. He says he also was going to grab Lemongrass grass.
I mention I like the smell of Lemongrass but don’t care for the Lemon Balm as much.
Kevin says they’re almost the same.
Me: “Lemon Balm smells like citronella. Lemongrass, smells a little more like citrus, a little less….nella??”
Luckily we were at a red light.
Kevin looks over and just STARES at me with that snarky smirk. You know the one. It’s a mix between “Is she SERIOUS?” and “You’re an idiot!” lol!
He just says, “A little less nella, you say.”
I break into uncontrollable hilarious giggling and cackling for about twenty minutes while he just keeps repeating, “Less nella. Right.” LOL!!!!! I crack myself up. 🙂
I’m giggling like crazy just typing this. lol. I’m a comedienne! 🙂
