Good Evening my dears..
How are you all..
So glad you dropped by for a wee visit..
Wondering what the weather is like in your part of the world..
We have been having rain and more rain..
I must say though that it is better then extreme heat any day to me..
I wore a sweater all day and have the heat on now..
A couple of hours away the temps are very hot..
The pic of the barn above was taken through the rainy windshield while I was waiting for Mr. Henry.. smile..
Anyway, on with the show..
Today after I came home after the shop closed and cut some rhubarb..
We still have quite a bit and I wanted to make my lemon drink from last year posted HERE.
I did not have enough lemons so decided to make a rhubarb one instead..
Here is the recipe..
It is from Nova Scotia and is called..
2 1/2 pounds of rhubarb
A couple of pieces of lemon peel
A small piece of peeled ginger root
1 1/2 quarts of water..
Chop your rhubarb and wash well ..
Place in stainless steel pot and simmer away for about 25 minutes or until soft..
Strain through a couple of pieces of cheesecloth and add less then 1/4 cup of lemon juice..
Place this in a stainless or glass pot and add 1 1/2 cups of sugar..
Bring to a boil.. Let it boil for a couple of minutes..
You can place this in sterilized jars and seal..
I just put mine in a large jar and keep in the fridge like I would the lemon one..
Place about a 1/3 of your glass with the juice and top with sparkling water or even Sprite..
Lovely drink for a hot day..
If we get any that is.. smile..
Just a couple of pics from the shop..
These are flowers from my Borage Herb plant..
I am collecting them to make a salve for sleeping..
I tried to buy some but the health food store didn't have any..
My plant is all in bud so should be able to get enough..
I thought it would be interesting to make and see if it works..
Thanks to all of your good wishes for our son..
So kind of you ...
Our daughter and family will be flying back home from Florida this week.. smile..
I will be glad when they get back home and our pastor's daughter is coming back from Germany..
Nice when they all get back safe and sound, eh?
Well, I must go..
My computer has been acting up..
It keeps turning off and you have to restart it from scratch..
What a pain..
We need to take it in but I am not sure when that will be..
So.. please bear with me and I will do what I can..
