Global Weirding ...

It's snowing ... last weekend it was in the upper 80's. I don't know whether to get some lighter spring clothes out or keep the heavy winter togs in the closet. The crocus popped this week ... so did one of the apple trees in the old orchard as well as a cherry tree. Blossoms are bursting forth all over town. My sinuses are stuffed up and it's time to pull the goldenrod tincture out and take some for my spring allergies! It's way to early for all of this. I'm just not ready. Between the time change and heat last weekend, my body was freaking out! I think strange weather is and will be happening all over the globe. I'm grateful that we haven't had any severe weather so far.

Remember the family I told you about a while back whose house slid down the side of a mountain? They received good news this week. Their cat, Joey, is safe and getting sound as I write. He was found about a mile away from his former home and is healing after 2 months of living in the wild!! The local newspaper dubbed him the "miracle cat."

Whoa! That's crazy! I'm glad the kitty is a-ok. What a trooper. My allergies started acting up last week too (that's never happened this early. Last year it was April when it happened to me and that was early for me then!) I've been drinking goldenrod tea every day since! That stuff is amazing!! Haven't tried the tincture, do you like it? If I can avoid buying expensive allergy meds this year with goldenrod (and ground ivy if I have to introduce it) I will be soooooo happy! I'm bent on curing my allergies with herbs.

P.S. The crocuses are beautiful! I love them!
