This morning I was supposed to have an appointment, but I received a call telling me that because of an emergency the office was closing for the day. All of a sudden I had no commitments!
I used my bonus day productively. I planted the ginger rhizomes that will summer on the deck when the weather warms up, and potted up a spider plantlet that had broken off the mother plant. I gave the bathrooms some needed attention, including deep-cleaning the toilet bowls to remove the water rings, then I grabbed the baking soda to scour the soap scum off of the shower glass. I changed out the winter artwork. In between physical jobs I tackled accumulated paperwork and desk projects. Then when Hubby Tony got home from work we took a nice walk.
After dinner I realized that after all my work the joints in my right hand were a little creaky, so I pulled out my bottle of lemongrass essential oil and rubbed a little bit over the knuckles and down the fingers. It only took a couple of minutes before things felt less creaky. And as an added bonus my hands smelled good.
Later in the evening I decided to have some herbal tea. Do you think it was a coincidence that I chose lemongrass?
