The Most of a Sunny Day

Today was a mostly sunny day - the first one in weeks, and I made my way into the garden to face facts. Many - if not most - of the seedlings that were put in or sprouted in the past 2-3 weeks are no more. Several of my peppers are in question as well, yet most of the tomatoes seem fine enough. I did more transplanting and put in more seeds and offered blessings yet again. I harvested another half-pound of Melissa to start the infusion for my next batch of Melissa mead - one to make up for the "bad situation" batch the other day. Halley liberated herself and upon her return I hosed her down and then chilled on the late afternoon deck to enjoy the last bottle of our Hopped Porter Variation that I humorously labeled "HPV." Well - I think it's funny. This was one of the best dark ales we've ever made and I savored every drop.
My latest little "Figures of Love" were finally fully dry and I started painting the first layers. Today I cleaned earth and paint from under my nails. Today I made the most of a sunny day.

HAH - buddy liberated himself too and earned a hosing down AND a brushing through with baking soda cause he smelled so doggy... what a wonderful thing, though... to see the sun... at last... :)

Great little figurines, I really love how they are so positive (I want to say cute, but don't want to offend you if they aren't meant to be cute!). I love how they capture the playfulness of the animals. Your porter name is hilarious, and i wish I could have tried a sip - it looks delicious :)
