I love rainy days. Round here it's pouring. I think the river will burst its banks and we'll be cut off from town. No matter. We're back from the library with a pile of books and we're nice and dry inside, cosying up just fine.
Yesterday we were so excited to be given an entire frame of honey from a friend's hive. One day our friend is going to give us a hive of our very own. I can't wait! The frame is very heavy, and we should get over a kilo of honey. We cut the top off the comb with a hot knife and let the honey drain into a bowl. It is very runny and quite delicious.
While we wait there's lots cups of tea and finger knitting. Cute pups by the fire and a new nest of pie dishes. It's a pie kind of day. Shepherds pie and apple pie for dinner tonight me thinks. Ahh rainy days. I love rainy days.
