Have A Cuppa

• Sep 30th, 2010 • Category: health, herbs, magic

Today would be a great day to cuddle up in front of the fireplace (lit, of course) with a good book and a pot of tea.  It’s been raining since early this morning (over 2″ thus far) and is cool and gloomy.  Unfortunately, life calls. Although most people refer to any hot herbal beverage as […]
