@who-is-page made this after a conversation about my love of honey. I hauled my scaly ass out of bed Saturday morning to go to the farmer’s market solely to visit the booth of my favorite apiary. I got a bottle of tupelo honey, a bottle of blueberry honey, and a bar of lavender soap made with goat’s milk and honey.
Every morning I have breakfast tea with cream and honey. Rather… every morning I have cream and honey. There is often (but not always) some tea in it.
