It’s Thursday morning; I hear the pitter-patter of raindrops against my bedroom window. It’s been a long time coming, but finally Sydney and pressumably the rest of the state receives a serious drenching that it has been waiting a long time for. I don’t think it’s safe to say that the drought has been lifted but it certainly was nice to see some moisture descending upon this dry state. I know I have never been happier to see a thick blanket of grey and a continual downpour, and I am sure many farmers were ecstatic too.
No sooner than when I said that the winter weather has been “unusually clement” that we get a beating of gale force winds and heavy rains, let’s just say the weather turned inclement all of a sudden. I guess we all wanted it to rain, but the weather has been out of control. I know I’ll be spending my weekend curled up in a ball at home but I really don’t mind.
On a sweeter topic, you have heard me harping on it before and here I am doing it again. If you regularly attend the Good Living Grower’s Market, then you will probably be familiar with Australian Honey Cellars, and if you have been reading this blog for some time, then you might be familiar with my posts about Tasmanian Leatherwood honey here and here. Well the good news is that the honey people have launched a new online store, which means you can now buy their gourmand selection of Australian honeys online. Great if you can't leave the house because of the wild weather.
To finish this off, here is a gratuitous shot of some honey on toast to subliminally goad you into checking out the site.
