Barbara Muir © 2014This is a short one today because I'm
feeling a bit tired. My herbalist's cure for
staving off flu, curing a cold, or in general
feeling better -- is hot lemon. His recipe
calls for a mug of boiling water, at least
three slices of organic lemon, organic
maple syrup to taste, and cayenne pepper,
just a few shakes.
It's pretty effective. So I'm going to go
and have one right now. The painting tonight
is of some lovely lemons with their citrus
sisters, mandarins and limes. It's all good.
I added a bit of Caribbean blue, for what
would be certain to make us forget the cold.
It's minus 25 Celsius here tonight.
Have an enjoying-a-hot-lemon day
