We’ve had two days of heavy rain off and on–with flood warnings late last night.

However, this morning dawned bright and sunny, and there is no sign of flooding around me. The “low country” drainage seems well planned in my neighborhood.

There will be more rain today though as another storm moves through this area. Low tide is late afternoon, and I am hoping for a chance to take a walk on the beach later today when I go over to my older son’s household for a family birthday celebration.

There are MANY Starbucks tucked all around this area, many with drive-up lanes. There is even a Starbucks in my local Harris Teeter grocery store. But a medium latte is almost $6. And it would be made with commercial dead milk and some sort of fake “honey” mixture or “sugar” syrup that might quite possibly rely on corn syrup in some form.

I have a large Bialetti espresso pot though–and also a collection of smaller ones for individual servings. At some point most days I make a big pot, to which I add my raw milk and raw wild honey.

LOL. I have NO TROUBLE drinking the whole pot of this delicious, rich coffee over the course of a morning or an afternoon after lunch.

I also have a milk frother/steamer, but I have not wanted to heat my raw milk as that would kill its nutrients.

Next week is going to be fairly busy for me: among the events will be a needed haircut, a trip to a local store to retrieve the every-two-weeks raw milk delivery, and the arrival of the longarm.

And the completed Traverse BOM rows are growing–though I will now have to wait for the next fabric delivery to finish this quilt. There are four more rows to make, each separated by a solid 2-inch strip of fabric. I will take pictures when I’ve finished what I can do at present as I have laid out the rows on the upstairs rug in the large room.

  1. Oh, I love a good cup of coffee and I envy your raw milk – I can’t seem to find raw milk in my area of Massachusetts. I’m a new subscriber to your blog. Mary Etherington of Country Threads recommended it and I’m so glad she did – it’s going to be fun going through your past posts. Love the quilts that I’ve seen so far and that you include topics like health and eating well, not to mention the dangers of vaccines for people and pets. There’s lots of inspiration here! Jan in MA

    1. Was thinking about raw milk for you. Contact your nearest local Weston A. Price Foundation chapter for info on raw milk availability near you. That list will be on their web site.

  2. Thank you Louisa for that information. I will definitely check it out. I have neighbors with goats, they make cheese and sell it through local shops. I’ve thought about asking if they’d sell some fresh milk to me but I think I’d rather have cow’s milk. Jan in MA
