Well, of course I came down with a sore throat, after all, it IS wintertime! And something my Daddy used to tell me kept running around in my brain, so I thought, what the heck, I’ll try it. Well, the sore throat is no more!!
What I did was to put about 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and sip on it whenever I thought about it. Well, let me tell ya, Daddy was right! Two days of this sipping and the sore throat was totally gone!
I know that using local honey is good for allergies and I’d read that the vinegar restored the acid level of the throat, and I guess it is true! Thank goodness for down home remedies! Sure glad that my visit to Louisiana wasn’t ruined!
I’ve been working hard on perfecting machine embroidery designs to put on my website: http://jacsoriginals.com/the-ol-homestead.html and thinking of “down home” tools like wheelbarrows, hay bales, shovels and rakes, etc. to digitize. Taking care of my chickens and rabbits and gardening in the country provide me with so many ideas to share!
I’ll be heading home soon, to put those ideas into designs and posting some on the website. Well, y’all take care, and remember, whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right!!!!!!
