Jen, a bloggy friend from New Zealand, tagged me a while back for this fun meme…let me know if you want to play and I’ll assign you an alphabet letter for your favorite things…Jen gave me the letter “E”…
So here goes:
Eggs!!! We have had eggs steadily throughout winter, on average around 17 a day. And we’ve been blessed to be able to sell all the ones we don’t use ourselves…lovely brown and green cackleberries (as Farmer John calls them…)
Electricity~ One of my favorite modern conveniences!
Enthusiasm~ a most important quality of both teachers and students!
Enamelware~ the only thing I collect, and I have very few pieces. It just transports me to a simpler time and place. I love it!
Edelweiss~ My favorite lullaby as a baby–all my siblings sang it to me as they one by one sneaked into the nursery and rocked me to sleep, unbeknownst to my mother…and she wondered why I was spoiled? It’s also a plant growing high in the Alps, with white leaves and flowers…
Eight year olds~ I’m blessed to be a mommy to one very special 8 year old!
Educating~ I can’t imagine a more rewarding job than that of educating one’s own children. Educating one’s self is almost as rewarding. You’re never too old to learn, and the subjects abound! That’s a blessing!
Echinacea~ The first herb that I had major success with in preventing many illnesses in my family. I can’t wait to learn to identify it in the wild and make my own remedies with what I’ve harvested!
Elm, Slippery Elm, that is… What a great herb! From abcesses to diarrhea or other digestive tract problems to poison oak/ivy and to ulcers–this herb is relatively new to me, yet we’ve already used it with quick results on common colds and bronchitis!
Each one of you… *smile* This place would be hum-drum without you. I’m so glad you keep stopping by!
