    The only time I’ve heard of mugwort was during a visit to a Korean bath house. We were supposed to splash mugwort infused water over ourselves before entering the baths. Or maybe it was after we got out.

    I hope you’ll feel better soon. Take care.

    After following your blog for a little while, all I can do is exclaim in amazement over
    how hardworking your MIL is!!! Does she ever slow down? Does she ever relax and take a break? Or is taking such good care of her family enough pleasure for her? She is a marvel.

    Very impressive, your MIL! And the mold is very intricate. Does a different filling go in the molded ones? Are they used for a different purpose?
