I was greeted by this lovely Fall morning when I opened up the blinds today. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I'm sure I've said it before. Spring is nice but there is so much to do. Fall is the season where I sit back in a chair with a nice cup of tea and my warm slippers and enjoy the cool weather.
Today I'm enjoying all this with two sick kids. Wesley and Greta both have a cold. Poor Wesley is full of phlegm. He had circles under his eyes this morning and I just couldn't send him to school. There is no school tomorrow so now he has four whole days to recoup. Of course he's running around and playing with his sister and you wouldn't even know he's sick, probably should have just sent him to school.
I've been reading about all the benefits of spirulina. It's a blue green algae that is cultivated and sold in powdered form. It's full of vitamins, protein and iron. It's supposed to boost the immune system which is why I bought it. I make a green shake every day with baby spinach, a banana, ginger root and frozen berries. I've been adding a teaspoon of spirulina to it to boost it's health benefits. It's tasty! The kids even drink it! I, of course, do not tell them about the algae. Perhaps one day soon all of this will help their immune system ward off all the crud out there.
