Day 17/100 happy days.

Happy Earth Day!

Today when we went out foraging for nettles, we also picked up some garbage (people are slobs) to show the planet we care. Later on, while we were waiting for our plants to dehydrate, Bryce brought out his fancy tea testers shipped from Taiwan to test out our potential future Thimbleberry Blend. Apparently these are official tea sets that businesses must use for taste testing tea. You put the leaves in the little ‘teapot’ and steep it for 5 minutes. Then you simply let it sit on top of the cup to let the water pour out; the leaves don’t fall out because of the little teeth!  One of the three blends shown here was outstandingly delicious compared to the other two. Wait until June 15 to find out which it is!

Day 13/100 happy days!

Today, Bryce, Jesse, and I left during the early morning hours to forage willow out in Squamish. Thankfully, the weather was great and we were able to find a lot without getting soaking wet from the rain. Bryce taught me more about different plants and I am now able to identify equisetum (horsetail), yarrow, and alder! Can you guess which one’s which? It was very exciting for me to find yarrow because I hear that plant is a magical medicinal plant that can rapidly heal wounds and do other great things for your health. We took a sample home to test out. :) Waking up at 5am for this can be exhausting but well worth it. British Columbia truly is beautiful.

Day 12/100 happy days.
I love it when Pepper camouflages into my duvet cover. He’s pretty good at it.
Today, I am not going out foraging because of the drizzly weather. Instead, I am taking my mother out for lunch, going rock climbing with William, and then spending the evening with my lovely friend Tyson. Today is going to be a magnificent day despite how gross it is outside. :)

Day 10/100 happy days.
I (sort of) learned a lot today when Tom fixed the suspension in my car! It was very interesting although all I really did was unscrew some nuts and screw them back in and hold flashlights and hand over ratchet wrenches… It didn’t take as long as expected and I was able to drive home within a few hours. I am very thankful for Tom for doing all of this for free! Now I don’t hear any more clicking noises when I drive.
