It has been crazy here…work wise and weather wise and when it is like this, on the weekends I bake. This past weekend it was a Coconut & Banana Bread. I haven’t done a full on bake up for a while, so I baked big. We had family for dinner and Mics Brother for Lunch…lots of cooking…and it was such a nice change of pace.
The weather has been terrible lately and the mornings have been dim…the kind of weather that makes you wonder why you can’t lounge about all day. I did for a little while, but I can’t sit still for long!
There was some testing to be done of these little tea strainers I made…I done it with coffee. Really, I would like to have done it with filter paper like the slow drip coffee systems, but plunger coffee made do while I worked away in the studio…
…wrapping orders and trying to find the beauty in such a dismal day. I enjoy candles when it’s like this so much more than usual.
I also had to contend with our yard flooding. Picture me in my wellies, in torrential rain with a matic, digging 4 trenches to let the water escape!
…I will leave you with that. They worked anyway 😉
