Look. I managed to grow a rose!
I really shouldnâ€™t take credit for that bloom, though, because Iâ€™ve done absolutely nothing to encourage it. The rest of my garden looks like this.
Iâ€™m the embarrassment of my neighborhood. Seriously. Even the mailman gives me the stink eye.
I was observing my garden this morning while holding Jamesâ€™ leash and trying not to yak all over my lovely rosebush. It was rough. So I rushed inside and made this delicious drink â€“ a natural cure for nausea (pregnancy-related or not! It really is a miracle cure for upset stomach):
To make this lovely bev, you need about 2 inches of freshly peeled and chopped ginger.
As well as half a lemon, sliced.
Fill your tumbler with boiling water and give it a good stir. I like to add something sweet (whether just plain sugar or agave nectar) to take the bitterness away a bit. Be sure to let it steep for a while â€“ at least 15 minutes.
One cup later, I was ready for breakfast.
A goat cheese and asparagus omelet (How to Make a Pretty Omelet) with Udiâ€™s toast on the side.
