Anyways, less chitchatting and more productivity ain't hurt, no? So let's see what do we have for today...
And today would be what may be called, Glenn's day, since all the cards featured today have been sent from Glenn throughout the years (being that he had just returned from another super cool cruise, I really need to catch up with his cards here :)))
The first card comes from Grenada, showing a nutmeg or Grenada's Black Gold, considered one of the main export spices used to make preservatives, medicine, seasonings, jams and drinks.
I have to say I rarely use nutmeg when cooking (said the one who rarely cooks in the first place), but it does have this kind of specific taste and smell so I just never feel confident enough to experiment with it, even though I do like experimenting with food, during those rare times you may find me in the kitchen :D)
A while ago I watched this video about cashew processing (talking about manual labour here), and boy is that one tough job to do! I absolutely love love love cashews, but it never would have occurred to me that the process may be so tedious. So i just was curious to see if there is something similar about nutmegs- well, they don't come even close to the cashew, but here we go:
so as you can see, this card was sent... long ago. Shows just how much up-to-date I am with posting my cards, but as they say, better late than never.
The stamp is from a set of 8 butterfly stamps issued in 2006, with this one showing the Cream-spotted Tigerwing (Tithorea tarricina pinthias)
