helper


How can a mom get some work done around the house? with a little helper such as this one?...


I've taken this pictures over the last two weeks or so.  I was really trying to take pictures for my etsy shop. She has mastered the skill of being all over the house. I was vacuuming  the stairs and without realizing the girl had followed me three steps up.  Yeah we checked Xavi followed her and she can crawl up the stairs without a problem.  So there it goes the baby gate is finally up and ready to prevent any falls.  
Sorry Emma the fun is over.

I started a cold  during the weekend.  I had read in a magazine some symptoms soothers you know the typical ginger tea but there were some that called my attention.  So I went and search for the magazine. 
Here is a list of them:

1. Garlic soup: Bring 8 cups of chicken, beef or vegetable broth to a slow boil. Meanwhile sautee 1 chopped onion and 7 minced cloves of garlic in olive oil. When the broth starts boiling, add the onion and garlic mixture,  Then let it simmer for about an hour.

2.  Hot black tea with a dash of cinnamon

3.  Heated rice pack:  Use them for swollen nods or sinus pressure.

I was really interested in the garlic soup as garlic is a natural antibiotic but was out of onions and I am not one to go around asking neighbors for groceries.  I am good now but definitely next time I want to try the soup and the heated rice pack...oh those sinuses :(

Have you ever used any of these?  what are your favorites cold remedies?  just curios :)

  1. Those little hands are so cute. You should hire Emma as a model to help show your goodies on Etsy! My favorite cold remedy is the neti pot. Yes it's gross but you feel like a million bucks after using it when you have a cold.

  2. Those wee hands! Absolutely precious. =)

    When you make your garlic soup use chicken broth to which a few chicken bones have been added, let that simmer while you do the onion and garlic... remove the bones before tossing the other ingredients in. Also, add some sage and parsley. That's what we call 'sick soup' in our house and it works a treat!

    Oh, and to clear those sinuses quickly: Pour simmering water into a bowl with sage (fresh or dried) at the bottom... let it steep for a few minutes. After 5 minutes or so, bend over the bowl and drape a towel over your head to trap the steam. You'll have to blow your nose ( a lot!) after, but it will definitely help clear your sinuses and your skin will glow.
