Somehow , somewhere , life unwinds as a sum of stories. A bicycle ride turns into a reunion with an old friend , a stroll in a bookstore - a discovery of a new favorite author , a walk in a park - a memento of a season. Be open. Stay hungry. Life is all but a record of small happenings. . . . . . . #poetryofsimplethings #seasonspoetry #seekinspirecreate #myeverydaymagic #livemoremagic #aseasonalshift #quietinthewild #thatauthenticfeeling #alliseeispretty #verilymoment #ardentfinds #provinciallife #allwhatsbeautiful #lifeunscripted #houseandgarden #igersportugal #lifeandthyme #rurallife #moodygrams #aquietstyle #theverydayproject #bevisuallyinspired #p3top #littlestoriesofmylife #artofslowliving #liveauthentic #momentslikethese #embracingslowerlife #shooters_pt

I’ve always been immured between worlds , the one I live in and the other that echoes in my mind as the stage of my daydreaming. I cannot set them apart as much as I cannot divide them. So , I navigate through them , jump fences and fill all the spaces in my life that are uneventful with a cheerful smile , a song , a lace. It does the trick , most of the times. . . . . . .

A while ago , I told you about a new cough syrup I made following @chestnutschoolherbs directions for making herbal syrups. They are so potent and , by far , my favorite kind of syrup preparation to make. The last syrup I made was for a dry cough , but recently , I’ve had a sick kid in the house with a fever 🤒 and a really loose , mucousy sounding cough , 😷 so I decided to whip up a blend that will help thin those secretions so he can cough them up. I definitely don’t want all that junk sitting in his lungs , as that could lead to a potential infection. This syrup contains elderberry honey 🍯 alongside an elecampane and licorice decoction ☕️ and some usnea and licorice tincture 🥃. 🌿Elderberry is an astringent herb which helps to tighten and tone weepy tissues. It’s also beneficial in reducing the severity and duration of a viral illness. Elecampane is a great expectorant herb. It helps to thin mucus , so it can be easily coughed up. Licorice is another herb with anti-viral properties , and it also eases inflammation in the body. Usnea is an excellent herb to ward off respiratory infections.🌿 When creating a formula for my son’s cough , I was looking for herbs that would help support a viral illness , would help thin the mucus in his lungs , and would support the mucous membranes in his throat and chest as well. I also needed something that was energetically warming and drying. This is what I came up with , and it seems to be working really well for him. I can’t tell you how nice it is to have two different cough syrups in my natural medicine cabinet that I can rely on and various types of coughs come our way (and with four kids , they certainly come our way). I love feeling prepared!! 😌 Speaking of prepared—I’m going to have to start a new batch of elderberry honey tomorrow because I used the last of my stock making the syrup. 😨

I move around without rigor. Tripping on small inflections , and making silly rhymes with a total disregard for whoever is listening. Petals fall on the floor behind me , exhibiting a carpet of an unwanted season. I’m all for cheating - flowers in January and a warm fire in the coldest nights of early September , I couldn’t help but think it. The truth is that as soon as the Christmas tree was re-planted , and all the decorations hidden in boxes and baskets , tucked in the attic - I felt some sort of desperation upon looking at the emptiness of those corners. Thus , today I’m in the mood for celebrating - welcoming Spring way before it is destined. Who knows , perhaps Summer is right around the corner. . . . . . #poetryofsimplethings #seasonspoetry #seekinspirecreate #myeverydaymagic #livemoremagic #aseasonalshift #quietinthewild #thatauthenticfeeling #alliseeispretty #verilymoment #dslooking #ardentfinds #provinciallife #allwhatsbeautiful #lifeunscripted #houseandgarden #countrysidelife #lifeandthyme #rurallife #moodygrams #aquietstyle #theverydayproject #bevisuallyinspired #pursuepretty #littlestoriesofmylife #artofslowliving #liveauthentic #momentslikethese #embracingslowerlife #shooters_pt

She walks the street as she belongs. Up and down that road , venturing farther than the corner where the golden dog barks and jumps. In her feminine attire with rounded skirts and lacy camisoles , her locks follow her movement every other morning. That dream chaser , made of ineffable thoughts , embodiment of candid poems , picture of endless youth and joyful disposition. There she goes , in a split of a second , turning that corner , diving that ensemble into this unmovable picture presented. . . . . . #poetryofsimplethings #seasonspoetry #seekinspirecreate #myeverydaymagic #livemoremagic #aseasonalshift #quietinthewild #thatauthenticfeeling #alliseeispretty #verilymoment #dslooking #ardentfinds #provinciallife #allwhatsbeautiful #lifeunscripted #houseandgarden #countrysidelife #lifeandthyme #rurallife #moodygrams #aquietstyle #theverydayproject #bevisuallyinspired #pursuepretty #littlestoriesofmylife #artofslowliving #liveauthentic #momentslikethese #embracingslowerlife

And I sigh to this sight. Sitting in this stone wall , with this bountiful land before my eyes. Hard to believe the amount of oranges that keep bending those branches , kissing the grounds , flooding the air with warm scents that reminds me of childhood. Bottled memories - undeniably the best to hold. . . . . . #poetryofsimplethings #seasonspoetry #seekinspirecreate #myeverydaymagic #livemoremagic #aseasonalshift #quietinthewild #thatauthenticfeeling #alliseeispretty #verilymoment #dslooking #ardentfinds #provinciallife #allwhatsbeautiful #lifeunscripted #houseandgarden #countrysidelife #lifeandthyme #rurallife #moodygrams #aquietstyle #theverydayproject #bevisuallyinspired #pursuepretty #littlestoriesofmylife #artofslowliving #liveauthentic #momentslikethese #embracingslowerlife
