Tis A Lovely Autumn Day Here In New England

October 11, 2021

Good morning.  So fsr, this is a gray day.  My phone app says we'll have temps in the mid sixties and maybe even a little sunshine.  Actually a pretty nice Autumn day. 

Our new baby Cerys has not been doing very well.  We've all been worried, and praying for her.  Today she is doing much better.  She's quite feisty and so precious.  We are blessed.

Today is a quiet day around here.  It's Columbus Day and the guys who aren't at work are just relaxing and enjoying a long weekend.  It's a good day for watching TV and crocheting.  My favorite TV programs are on today, Perry Mason and Law & Order.  In between, I think I'll wash a couple of my favorite dresses and hang them out on the line to dry.

There are a lot of colds going around, and I found this lovely old medicinal recipe on the web.  It might be just the thing for clearing up a cold.  Alas, I have everything but the whiskey.

I did not have those taters and eggs yesterday.  Instead, I had a bowl of chicken soup.  However, I do think I'll have the taters and eggs later today.  Maybe for supper.  I may even have a piece of fried chicken with it.  Yum yum!

Speaking of food, I found this really cute image on the web and just had to share it.  I had to laugh because I do love donuts.

The morning is slipping by and I have blogs to read.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Dave was telling me that his grandmother used to give them a tonic containing whisky when they were sick as kids -- probably something a lot like that old recipe. I hope Cerys is OK!

I hope you feel better every day and I'll keep baby Cerys in my prayers!

Oh, hope Cerys will be okay.
My mother also had something when we had a bad cold. She whipped one or two egg yolks very stiff, then poured over warm milk, lots of sugar in it and perhaps a tiny drop of whiskey or rum in it. I think you call this egg nog. I loved it as a child and sometimes make it on cold winter days.
Chicken soup tastes good too and yes, perhaps the potatoes and egg can be for your supper today, why not.
Have a wonderful day, enjoy your Perry Mason,

My mom would give us a small nip of whiskey with lemon and tea when we had sore throats and bad colds.Not as a habit but it worked. A few years ago my hubby was so sick with his asthma and a terrible cough. We were at Outback and our friend CHris the bartender made him ahot toddy. He said when his parents were serving int he military and their grandmother looked after him and his brother she would make them a hot toddy if they were sick. Today they would lock us in jail but it cleared up what made us feel poorly. :-)
