It's a Bunnyderful Wednesday

Flopsy in the Hostas - 20 feet from the beagle on his tie-out chain

Flopsy in the Oregano - 2 feet from the beagle on his tie-out chain

Filia's latest finished object

I'm sensing a bunny theme here.  This is a test knit

Weavies!  (without bunnies)
One rather sizable SCOBY, also without bunnies.

Cute bunnies! I love the knitted one :) But what on earth is a scoby? It looks a bit like an alien life form...

Scobys are a wee bit strange. It's an acronym for Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast. With one, you can transform tea and sugar into a nice healthy probiotic drink (and the sugar gets converted into non-sugary stuff). The resulting beverage is called Kombucha (Kombu Tea, if you half-translate it, or Mushroom Tea if you translate the whole thing.) You can even grow your own scoby from store-bought Kombucha!

Got me smiling right away this morning! Very cool pics :)
I am still the unadventurous one that buys her own Kombucha (don't you dare call it mushroom tea, or I will have to stop drinking it)

If you ever want to get started making your own ... I've got extras! It's LOTS less expensive than getting it pre-made.
