Happy “2022!”

A stranded knit coaster

Hello friends,

I pretty much bailed on this blog the entire past year. I’m not sure why, and it wasn’t a decision, really, except my feelings about all the happenings in our world were much bigger than my ability to fit them into words. We are still pretty much all dealing with many of the same issues we were last year. Covid, the economy, political maneuvers by both the good guys and bad guys, climate change, food safety and TP supply. But maybe we have learned we are all stronger and more creative than we thought. We’re going to get through this and thrive again. Differently? Sure. We have all been changed, because the unthinkable has happened in a million different versions. But, maybe we will be better, too.

I have had a lot of time to practice on stranded knitting skills, and the hardest thing about it is getting the tension correct, carrying yarn in both hands and floating the unused color every 3-4 stitches along the back as you go. I’m happy to report, “By jove, I’ve finally got it!” I made my first (finished) stranded knitting project recently. Snowflake coasters!

My focus on mediumship development has remained. It has grown to the point I am now fully committed to it. I am learning and practicing with other mediums I don’t know to refine my skills and presentation of communications from spirit. I have joined a development circle of other mediums that meet weekly, as well as practicing 1:1. The next step is practicing 1:1 with friends of friends, or other non-mediums I don’t know. I have created a new, additional blog on WP to encompass that part of my life. If you are interested in following that part of my world, the new blog link is: https://messengerforspirit136467105.wordpress.com .

I still love cooking, baking, herbs and making misc. creative projects, and will continue to post those here as I do so. It is my hope you will still want to read them. Thanks for being here!

My Review Of A Great New Herbal Cookbook!

I am fortunate, indeed, to have been invited to do a second pre-release digital copy review of this delicious new herbal cookbook, The Herbal Medicine Cookbook, by Susan Hess. I want this book in my library, too.

Susan Hess is a therapeutic herbalist and native weed wrangler. Since 1997 Susan grew a wonderful line of handcrafted herbal products through her business, Farm At Coventry, and is now at a new location, The Stillroom At Pitch Pines.

Susan routinely shares her expertise and knowledge of herbs in community education workshops and through her twelve month “Homestead Herbalism” course and teaching gardens.

After reading her cookbook it is clear the lady is a chef, too! Her recipes and photography were mouth watering. I can’t wait till her book arrives! It is available as a pre-order on Amazon with an official release date of January 15th.
