Bench Monday


It's late in the day.  The sky is overcast and spitting rain.  I worked last night and have had about two hours sleep today...then I realized - It's Monday.  

I didn't want to miss Bench Monday.

Why the buckets?  We are hoping to harvest some honey at the end of the month and I've been on the hunt for food grade plastic buckets with lids.  I started looking last Monday, which as it turns out, most of our local bakeries are closed on Monday.  Took a chance while doing errands in Costco and scored a few large buckets from their bakery.  We will pour the honey from the spinner into the buckets, then we can strain it (removes any bits of wax), and pour it into jars.

Happy Bench Monday!

Are you so excited to harvest your honey? I got all giddy just thinking about it and I haven't been working hard on it all year. I think I am going to pick up some local honey at the farmer's market this weekend.

Interesting picture. Now I know that those sour cream buckets are really strong. I hope you will have plenty of honey to fill them up ;-)

Great photos, Leigh! It looks so beautiful through that canopy of trees. Love the socks photo. I think of you every time I see bees meandering through our flowers here. ;))
