In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Honey, Granny Bee, Mats!

Guess what I've been up to.....'s honey. To see a post I did last year on how I process it, click on this.

And guess who I got a visit from the other day?

The Granny Bee!!! Along with the tree, she threw in some of those little lights for the tree.

Thank you Beth.

And remember I told you RJ and I met janis from Just Breathe Janis the other day? Well, after coffee with janis, we met my Sister for lunch.

And I had been making my sister some "mats" for her birthday.

You see, my Sister has a friend who is from England, or some such place, and they don't say rugs or coasters...they say mats. Or at least she does...this person from England. So we've decided to call them mats too. I made a mat out of variegated yarn, large enough for a I suppose it would be a pitcher mat. And then I made smaller mats for her glasses. I didn't get them all finished by her birthday and I had the last one in my purse. When we were having coffee, I pulled it out of my purse. And when I did, RJ was laughing at it...wasn't she Janis?"....tell the truth....she was making fun of it. And I said, "you can make fun of it all you want, my sister will use it."

And when we met my sister for lunch, I gave it to her, and she set it right under her drink! So ppphhhbbbbtttttt....RJ!

And btw, they make nice, quick, easy gifts...little beer, wine, iced tea, soda mats. I think I shall make a whole stack of them! I knitted the mat and crocheted the edge.

Oh yes, and now I think I shall start calling shopping appears that's what the English do. Gasp! I just realized, we're learning a new language!

  1. Oh my... all that honey. Let me tell you, I am jonesing for it. That is the only thing that holds me back from having a bee hive. I swear I can just drink the stuff. I would then go into a sugar coma...I guess there are worse things.

    Mat, coaster, RJ, rug, you, all equals funny!

  2. Ummm if you have any honey for sale you can count me in!

  3. Please for Christ sake help this poor boy from Haiti

  4. Just to throw a spanner in the works, we Brits call pitchers "jugs"!!

  5. Cake chick - That honey is yummy stuff. Especially when it's right out of the hive.

    Vintage and RJ - Got one held back for each of you.

    Majid - Stop asking me for money, you're not getting it. If anyone needs to go on a vacay it's me. Now go away.

    Fiona - I've decided to start "Brit" language lessons. Right hand corner of my blog. Guess what jugs are to Hoosiers...well Hoosier men anyway? um..nevermind.

  6. Cindy Bee,
    You are ALWAYS good for a laugh. That's why we keep coming back. And the fact you teach us stuff....honey harvesting, new knitting ideas and learning new languages.
    Julie ;)

  7. Honey, yumm. My honey I bought from the Amish last summer got sugary? Not sure of the term. Why is that. I only used about 1/2 of it. I keep scooping into it once in a while to add to my grits when I make some for breakfast. Should I do that or is it bad? I know you are busy Cindy Bee do not worry if you do not have time to comment on my blog. I know you are a good bloggy friend. Stopped by the house blog yesterday. You sure have gotten a lot done even if you are not as far along as you would have hoped.

  8. I love hunny!!! (so does Debbie M)
