“I’d choose truth over cake
but I’d try to find a way to get both to be honest.”
Storm clouds rolled in yesterday, instantly turning our day cozy. So we had to take time between projects for reading on the veranda, long distance chats with dear old friends, and roast chicken stuffed with sage and lemon.
Bear and I have been working on all sorts of farm projects this week, and have the cuts, bruises, and aching muscles to prove it. It’s worth it though, for we have newly built chook pens, freshly dug garden plots, and fences that keep in even the most determined goat escape artist.
We decided that our chook pens needed some climbing plants to protect our new White Sussex and Australorps from the fierce Aussie sun, so we bundled up and headed to our favorite nursery – Gardens Galore – to see what we could find.
I tried my very first “Dutch” – a caramel latte topped with whipped cream and cinnamon. Oh my. It’s like a hug in a cup.
What is your favorite cake on a rainy day? xo
