Today I have an oh-so-rare day at home by myself. Everyone else is off doing their thing, and I have the day off from work. I love these pre-holiday holidays because there is nothing in particular you are supposed to do. I plan on spending the day sewing and being totally irresponsible when it comes to anything else, such as upkeep of the house. So if you don’t see some sewing pics up here in the next couple days, you will know that I suffered a terrible sewing FAIL.
Elie’s hives are producing. We harvested three frames of honey last night. Yum, yum, but what a mess! It filled two pickle jars and three larger jam jars, so we are pretty such swimming in the stuff. Our honey extracting process is not very efficient, as we don’t own a proper (expensive) extractor. Instead we squish it in a strainer, then strain it through panty hose (one of the best uses of panty hose IMO). Our kitchen floor is done and beautiful, and as we found out last night as our sticky harvest dripped all over, it is just the color of honey.
