Another weekend adventure with the camera! This weekend, I ventured down to Jersey to visit my friend Liz, and she took me to Grounds for Sculpture out in Hamilton, NJ. For all of my favorite shots, visit my Flickr album!
It was a really cool place with random sculptures interspersed all over the grounds. You never know what’s next!
We wandered around, respectfully touching the sculptures while catching up on our girl chat. As the peacocks wandered around us, I’ve determined, I wouldn’t mind having them wander around in my backyard…when I become dirty filthy rich (not this lifetime, for sure!)
Even though it was a rather warm day for a January, it was still pretty chilly out, especially as the sun was going down for the day. A good day for tea!
One of my favorite hot beverages to drink on a cold day (and especially when I am under the weather) is ginger tea. There is no actual tea in ginger tea, so at least I don’t have to worry about caffeine intake.
Ginger Honey Lemon Tea
1 little chunk of ginger. You can put more or less depending on how spicy you want it.
Teaspoon of Honey
Slice of lemon (or more if you want it more lemony)
Cup of hot water.
Take the chunk of ginger and cut off the skin. Then slice into matchstick size pieces.
Put that in a cup along with the honey. Squeeze the lemon slice into the cup and put into the cup too.
Take a spoon and smoosh everything together (I think the right term is muddle).
Pour in the hot water and give it a good stir.
Enjoy (carefully, cause it’s hot!)!
The beauty of this is, you can adjust it as you desire. Feeling a bit uneasy in the tummy? Add more ginger. Feeling like a cold? Add a little more lemon. Too tart? A little more honey!
Or, if you are feeling especially lazy, and willing to spend a couple of dollars, go to your nearest Asian super market and get a jar of Honey Ginger concentrate. It’s the same thing, except without the lemon. Just a few teaspoons of that and some hot water, and you are good to go!
Can’t wait for my next camera adventure!
Great shots. That one of the peacock… you almost just can’t take a bad one of a peacock. Ya know? 🙂
Thanks! You’re right, you can’t…hence why it was so hard to pick the best one!
Thanks for sharing those great pics!!
Thanks Maribel! Thanks for stopping by!
Great photos. I especially loved that red poppy. (Poppy, right?) And the peacock! Also, smoosh is a perfectly valid kitchen term.
Thanks!! Yes, it was a Poppy 🙂
