Cold Remedy Drink – Hot Orange Spice Beverage

cold remedy hot orange drink recipe

The first months of a year very often bring a cold into my life. It’s not the most pleasant of the situations, but it is what it is.

This year, I was trying my best to fight the cold without pills, as naturally as possible. After searching in the deep waters of the internet a little bit, I found this lovely recipe that has been designed especially for fighting the cold or flu.

And it indeed made me feel a lot better.

The beverage is full of vitamin C, it contains raw honey with its antibacterial properties and there a few lovely spices to make you feel beautifully warm inside. It tastes very yummy as well. I highly recommend it.

Enjoying…

crochet million diamonds blanket

Hi friends!

How are you doing? I hope everything is fine in your lives.

I am having a really great week. I feel relaxed, energized, happy. And I am thankful for everything being really nice in my life right now.

In addition, there are a few little things that I am enjoying immensely at the moment.

Like the project I am working on that is shown in the picture above. It has to stay a little secret for now, but more details will be revealed really soon… :)

 

crocheted hearts

These crocheted hearts. They were used in one of my previous projects and now I kind of can’t stop making them. I am trying to figure out another project for them to be used in. Maybe they could decorate a flower pot.

Or they could look lovely if turned into a garland…

 

variegated yarn

And this new variegated yarn that I found in my favorite local store. I am still not sure what to use it for. Perhaps a baby blanket would be a fine idea. Those will be much needed around here in the near future. Do you have any suggestions?

Wishing you a great week!

Love,
Petra
 

A Great White Show

snow and trees

We had a big snowstorm here in the heart of Europe a couple of days ago.

It was magnificent!

The snowflakes were so huge, possibly the biggest I have seen. Ever! I’ve read that it had something to do with the air humidity. And what I loved about this nature’s show the most was that I could watch it from behind the window of my warm home office, without even letting my nose out. I really adore the view here.

I snapped a few pictures to share with you…

Enjoy!
