Yesterday we took our wicks and prepared to make beeswax candles.
You should leave them to cure for a few days, but I have never been known for my patience, so we lit a wonky one at lunch time and we were all very excited to find that we had actually made a candle which burned for ages.
Good morning. And now I must dash. I have a cow to milk and animals to feed and then I need to change into clothing more suitable for the city,(imagine if I wore my upholstered clown suit and gumboots to the city!! Ha ha ha. Actually don’t imagine that. Too horrible!) And we don’t have time for flights of fancy, I have to catch the early train.
If I do not pop in tomorrow morning blame ChgJohn! But I will try! I promise!
OH! Yesterday it was announced that I had won The Writers Desk Competition over at Nancy’s beautiful blog. Isn’t that lovely! And the other entries were wonderful so I am very flattered. Thank’s to all of you who voted for me and Thank You nrhatch. (This is how Nancy appears in our comments lounge, just so’s you know). Having a writing competition was such a fun thing to do!
Have a lovely day. I certainly will!
Here is a story I wrote exactly 12 months ago. It is a story about Love. If you have time you might like to read it.
PS Talking of Dirty Stop-Outs Charlotte still has not called in to let us know how she is. So we are assuming no news is good news. Though Good News would have been Better.
Now, what am I doing, Lollygagging about, I have to run!!!
