“3 and 5 with reid :)” “wahhh can i request a drabble! 3, 6, and 10 with spencer reid pls. Thank you!”
3: “Just because I drove into that river, doesn’t mean I’m a bad driver.”
5: “Do you trust me?” - “Not even a little bit.”
6: “Don’t yell at me like I’m a child!” - “Don’t throw the scissors!”
10: “Come inside, I’m sorry.” - “Not until an apology.” - “I just said i’m freaking sorry!”
(A/N): I have combined these, because they both fitted really well for a childish, funny reader. But I’ve made it longer! It is more like a one shot instead of a drabble, so I hope that makes up for it ;)
“No, Y/n! You can not drive the car.” Spencer repeated.
“And why not? I’m a great driver.” Spencer gave her the look that eld a million words.
“Look, just because I caused an accident once, doesn’t mean-”
“You are forgetting that time where you hit a rabbit. Or the time you almost drove in a store. Or when you drove into that river.
“Look, just because I drove into that river, doesn’t mean I’m a bad driver.” Y/n stated.
“I think you don’t know the meaning of bad driver.”
“I know you do, but if you say it I will hit you.” Y/n threatened.
“Fine.” Spencer waited a few seconds. “Anyways, we’re almost home. So I see no point in letting you drive.”
“I see no point in talking to you.”
And that is how it began. Spencer gave Y/n the look that said she was being a child, bust she couldn’t care less. She just kept staring out of the window, not even singing along to the songs. Spencer rolled his eyes, when Y/n got angry, she was such a child.
“We are home. Do you want me to order some food?” Spencer asked with a smile.
“Yes. I’ll cut the extra herbs!” She kissed his cheek, letting Spencer know he had been forgiven for his words. She hopped out of the car and waited for Spencer to open the door.
She disappeared in the kitchen and Spencer heard the sound of scissors, he knew Y/n was cutting the herbs.
“Honey, the Chinese food will be here in half an hour.” she stopped cutting.
“You ordered Chinese?”
“You like Chinese.”
“I am cutting herbs for Spanish now.” She threw the herbs over.
“Y/n!” Spencer exclaimed.
“Don’t yell at me like I’m a child!”
“Don’t throw the scissors!” Spencer tried as Y/n held up the scissors. Y/n dropped them.
“I’m sorry. I’m just really tired.” Spencer looked somewhat scared.
“It’s fine.” She looked horrified of herself.
“No. It’s not. You are afraid of me.”
“You know how to shoot, you know how to kill a fly with a rubber band from a mile away. Of course I’m afraid of you. But I still love you.”
The food tasted better then ever, and that was good.
“This is really good.” Y/n started. “I’ll cut some more herbs.”
“You don’t have too.”
“Why?” She smirked. “Don’t you trust me?”
“Not even a little bit.” He stated at which she rolled her eyes.
A little bit later, the phone rang. It was the BAU. “Y/n, I have to go.” He said.
“Now?” He shook his head.
“No, tomorrow. It’s not for a case.” Y/n was a sniper, so she understood, but she was still upset.
“Really? That sucks.”
“Well, you can’t have everything you want.” Spencer snapped at Y/n. Y/n looked at him. Maybe it was the tiredness, maybe she was just upset he didn’t get to spend her birthday with her. But she went outside.
“Fine.” She snapped back. It didn’t take Spencer to realize what he had said and went outside.
“Look, I didn’t mean it like that. I swear.” He sighted. “Just come inside, I’m sorry.”
“Not until an apology.”
“I just said I’m freaking sorry!”
“Again, please.” She urged.
“Fine. I am sorry, just come inside. We can watch a movie.” Y/n narrowed her eyes.
“Can I pick the movie?” Spencer nodded.
“Okay, fine.” Y/n nodded and calmly walked inside.
“And I am not a child.” She stated, being able to read his mind. Spencer chuckled.
So..I was all set to *not spend money* today..and then we went to Spirit Dreams.. 🙄🙄🙄
So these are the gems I got today! Look at all the calcite!! 😍
Green, blue, honey, I even saw pink! I’ve never seen pink ~ there was calcite everywhere I turned.. how could I not? >.>
Hey guys! I have a cold right now but this recipe helps me a lot, I try it with regular water before but it was not the same. After all what I need is a little bit of magic with me!
Moon water (I used Full moon water)
Chinese green tea
Firts thing firts boil the moon water and put it in a cup. Put your energies on it, look the water and feel the fire, the elements will help you.
Cut the lemon in a half and
it in the water! Lemons are an amazing tool for purifications, squeeze ir gently with your hand.
Now put the bag of chinese green tea. Chinese green tea is amazing for health.
Some bags of teas already have honey, but if you want to have a little bit of sweetness put more on it. Think about is a liquid sunshine, the energy of the sun.
Plus: You can also add some mint!
Now drink it slowly and feel it in your
the cold away. Is amazing if you drink it before go to bed or early in the morning. How i said, i tried it with normal water but even the taste was different. So, go ahead!
Sorry I’ve put this off so long! Yay! Another awesome addition to an herbal medicine cupboard is this nifty stomach/general indigestion syrup. It treats tummy aches, nausea/vomiting, bowel pain, diarrhea, gas/bloating. Its basically an herbal version of pepto bismol in regards to the symptoms it treats, but it tastes much better! (Again, Image heavy post!!)
Our two main herbs for this tonic are star anise and cloves. Not only are they chock full of herbal goodness, but they taste great and give this syrup a nice “Christmas spice” taste. Chinese star anise (not to be confused with Japanese star anise which is fatal if ingested!) is a common cooking spice with a distinct black licorice flavor. Its great for fighting of bacterial and fungal infections, an imbalance of which are a primary cause of many common digestive tract ailments. Its been used for centuries for digestive tract problems including upset stomach, gas, loss of appetite, nausea and colic in babies. Cloves are another great multipurpose spice. Its a great expectorant, so its good for respiratory infections and getting rid of phlegm. It also reduces inflammation and is a natural antiseptic and pain killer. (I’m planning on making a salve with cloves for treating scrapes/bruises and arthritis/sore muscles!) But for our purposes today, cloves help relax the smooth lining of the gastrointestinal tract, so they help alleviate vomiting, diarrhea, intestinal gas and stomachaches.
So some things you’ll need:
Chinese Star Anise
Honey (I put honey in just about everything to be taken internally, not only does it pack a nutritional punch with all the medicinal benefits you get, but it makes medicines taste so much better.)
Sugar (or other sweetener for preservative
Small sauce pan
Something to stir with. A whisk will help later on too.
Containers for storage (I used recycled brandy bottles.)
Measure ¼ cup of star anise and cloves. Since this is a fairly large whole spice, the way I did it was to first fill it up with the anise and then sprinkle the clove buds into the spaces. You want to use less cloves than anise anyway because they are strong and can upset the stomach if you use too much. Add your spices to a quart (4 cups) of cold water in your sauce pan. Its important for the water to be cold or room temp so everything infuses as it heats up together.
Heat on medium temp. and bring to a simmer. Simmer liquid on med-low or low (depending on your stove) and reduce it to about ½ or a pint (2 cups.) This will take awhile so be patient. The important thing is to not heat to too high too quickly.
Strain your mixture into a separate container. Pour back into the pot. You don’t have to, but I sometimes add food coloring at this step to tell my syrups apart more easily. I liked the pale yellow of this one though, reminds me of the solar plexus chakra. ;)
Add two cups of sweetener. I used one cup of sugar and one cup of honey. You can use whatever sweetener you have, agave, sugar, honey, brown sugar, even maple syrup. Some recipes will say just use one cup of sweetener especially if you’re just going to refrigerate it, but I used more as a preservative and to make it shelf safe. Add the sugar first and whisk to dissolve, then add your honey.
Warm over low heat and stir well for about 30 minutes. Again this will be tedious, but slow and steady wins the race, you don’t want your sugars to burn. It will thicken and reduce to about half again.
You’re almost done! Use a funnel to pour the warm syrup into empty, glass containers. Leave them on the counter to cool. After they’ve cooled, don’t forget to label and date them. (You can see my heart health syrup cooling in the background!)
Directions: Take a spoonful as needed to treat symptoms. Additional dose every hour if symptoms persist.
There you have it! I make this for a friend of mine, diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, (a not very fun chronic GI tract illness) and she swears by it. Of course she takes her regularly prescribed medicine, but says this syrup is extremely helpful in fighting quick flares of symptoms, especially those onset by certain foods.
It’s the year 1702. You want to eat something sweet. What are your options? Can you hit up Whole Foods for xylitol or agave? Nope. You don’t even have table sugar. But if you’re lucky, and it’s the right time of year, you might get a little bit of honey.
Honey has been humans’ main sweetener for thousands of years. People didn’t really have sugar until intercontinental trade in the 18th century made cane sugar available.
Honeybees, which originated in Africa, have probably been around for 100 million years. So it’s no surprise that nearly every world culture uses honey.
Honey appears in Spanish cave paintings about 10-15,000 years old (see image below).
Honey is part of Buddhist rituals and traditional Indian and Chinese medicine.
