umcka. m'kay.


i wish that i had found umcka at the first of october, but of course this is not how i roll. i find it afterwards, after the prolonged sickies and hacking (which by the way was the most exercise i got all month, so i should be thankful, i guess). i found this a week ago at sunharvest and this stuff really works! v was getting all sinusy on sunday & i got her taking shots and lawdy mercy, she is healed. it passed the usual 'mom, i would rather be sick then drink this stuff!' test. as to flavors, we have only tried the menthol which is actually tasty, like peppermint schnapps shots that are good for you.

after a week of working hard, the kids and i went to first friday in southtown last night. it was really a bigger deal than usual since it was the dia de la muertos celebration. sage met us down there so it was extranice.

now, to a long work weekend....and am thankful for the extra hour due to daylight savings time tonight.

Anything to make the colds last less and not be so darned wicked!! I use the sucky things, those zinc lozenges. They work too!

P.S. Don't forget the S'mores at your wienie roast tonight! :)

I must confess, I'm just junior high enough that I can't get past the name. I think our grocery store carries natures way, I'll take a look at it.

First Friday sounds like FUN!
ohmygod... Rapper's Delight just came on. I love you.

I need to find about a case of this stuff and store it for the winter - we're almost finished with round one of cold/bronchitis/sinus infection, but with a preschooler, I'm sure round two is just around the corner.

What a great find! Cold season isn't quite upon us here, but I'll be on the look out for this. Hugs to V

Thanks for the heads up, I'll be on the look out for it.

Glad V is better. :-)

Enjoy this beautiful fall weather, Mz. Dawn.
