Sounds a bit contradictory but here is what I see.  It is raining, a light drizzle.  The sky is a solid light gray… yet the leaves are brilliant reds, oranges, and rusty yellows.  The moss is brilliant in shades of chartruese, lime, and emerald.  So dull yet so bright.

A great day for cooking and making fun teas.  This morning, because I’m off coffee for a while, I made my burdock and dandelion root beverage in brown rice milk.  I did this on the stove, whisking and never letting get to the boiling point.  This keeps the nutrients in.  One drop of Stevia and it was delicious.  Just what I needed;  something robust and full of character but mellow and comforting.

Today is just full of contradictions.
