This stuff is gorgeous! The slate is going under the wood cookstove as a fire retardant surface in case a ember falls out of the stove door when loading. Another step forward to the beautiful , functional kitchen of my dreams!
I have had a busy day today, got my walk in at 4:30, made my breakfast juice and then watered the gardens. Tea at the Mudhouse was next, then I rode the bus out to the library center to spend some time. I have been solar cooking some mung beans and rice today, it’s like a crock pot, you set it and you don’t have to bother it again until dinnertime. I started off the after the allergic reaction weighing around 260, this morning when I weighed I was at 241.5. Not bad!
