Project Update and More

    The secret crochet project is more than half done now. It's been fun, but every single time I make this particular project, I swear it's the last time. I think this one might really be the last one. I can't provide photos as it's a surprise gift.

    As for the "More", I'm happy to report that I finally decided to go and buy some mead. Yup, the medieval wine made from honey. I have even looked into making some myself. But it can take up to a year to age, and I want instant gratification.

    After asking for opinions on facebook, I headed off to the liquor store, and found me some mead. They had two brands, but neither was the brand that was recommended to me. On my way out, I took a look at the mini bottles of liqour, and found that Stoli now has a honey flavored vodka! I purchased a tiny bottle for tasting. I'm excited to try it!

    I put the mead in the fridge to chill. As I was cooking dinner, I opened the bottle and gave it a taste. It's really good! In my mind, my kitchen became my buttery, and my living room, my solar. I poured myself a taller glass after the initial small amount to taste. It's very, very enjoyable. I can see myself purchasing this in the future.  I can't even describe how good it is. Why did it take me so long to try some?

  1. I enjoy historical fiction and mead is something I think I would enjoy. I think I am going to try it! I will be spending my dream time in the solar. No trips to the buttery for me. I may stroll out to look over the stableboys. I mean horses!
