Feeling Yucky ~ ~ ~ ~ creating True Beauty

Yesterday I had a virus , my youngest daughter's family had it over the holidays. Guess , it was my turn , yuck.

I decided to create some " True Beauty " between my runs to the commode (LOL). YD gave me oil pastels for Christmas , so I decided to give them a try. Need to learn more about oil pastels , this was the first time I've used them since I was in elementary school. Many moons ago and I don't remember much about them. I thought the flowers turned out o.k.
I've felt better today , no diarrhea , my stomach still feels queasy at times. Last night I made a blackberry drink , boiled some water and added a tbsp of blackberry jam to a cup and drank about 3 cups. I learned about this herb a few years ago when my dad was sick with diarrhea , he told me he needed some blackberry jam. My Dad told me Grandma used blackberry for diarrhea problems when he was a boy. I believe this is the reason I became interested in learning about herbs. I have made blackberry tea from the leaves too. Yesterday I was to sick to venture outside , so I used the jam I made last spring to make a concoction.
Hope everyone is well and had a blessed day.
