Not a recipe,
Pam Key stayed with us last weekend. It was her second stay. The first one was earlier this summer. She was with Mitzie or is that Mitzy? – her small, white poodle. We got along very well that first visit so she brought her husband this time around.
Pam left a wonderful letter for me in which she inquired about the little herb bundles that I put on the pillows when I have time. I mentioned those herb bundles once before in passing.
rosemary and sage
They are there because I like the smell of Sage. I like Rosemary too, but I like Sage more. Sometimes, when I have Lavender or Thyme, I’ll use that with the sage. Then it can be useful under the pillow when sleeping…ahhhhhhhhhh
Aromatherapy so to speak. I don’t like synthetic scents.
And that is all there is to it Pam.
Please note: I would not put those little treasures on the beds of the fishermen that are here right now, they would definitely laugh at me, heehee. Joan, you know of whom I speak
Ummmm…a couple of months ago when I bought some fresh Lavender at the Elberta Farmer’s Market, I made a bundle like that for myself and stuffed it under my pillow. It was wonderful.
The next morning I had forgotten all about the Lavender, when all I could see were these tiny little “droppings” in my bed, which made me freak out completely.
Of course in my drowsy head I thought they are mouse droppings, which would mean that there is a mouse in the house… YIKES – that is one of the most paralyzing thoughts for me. Give me spiders, give me snakes, but please keep the meeses away from this house.
It took me a couple of minutes to figure out that the lavender blossoms had all rubbed off the stalk and were all over my bed, heehee
