Thoughts on Bees

I have been enjoying putting our home in order these last few days. I still have some more to get done before we enjoy a fun day tomorrow, but I am well on my way. The weather is suppose to turn rainy here starting tonight. I am a bit disappointed in that because Michael will be off work for the next three days. I was hoping to get the potatoes planted on Friday afternoon. Doesn't look promising according to the weather forecast. He will be picking up our bees this afternoon. He is on a race to see if he can work a full day at work, pick up bees, AND get the bees in the hive before it gets too cool or rainy this evening. More power to him. I just am not very helpful in the bee department. I didn't even offer to go pick up the bees for him. Before you decide that I am NOT a good help meet, let me ask you. Would you want to drive in a car with a bunch of bees in a little box??? I didn't think so!!! Plus it is kind of sort of on his way home from work so that part makes me feel a little bit better about not helping him! I did offer to go pick up more hay. I would rather haul square bails of hay than a little bitty box of bees anytime!

grace and peace,

You sound like a wonderful help meet. I say, do what you CAN and don't apologize for what you can't. I wouldn't want a box of bees in my car, either. Have a wonderful Easter! Liz

I'm with you on those bees!! We got our bees on Monday. This is my daughter's project but I went along for the ride... harrowing as it was!!

I posted some pictures of our bee adventures on my blog if you want to see them.

We're in Alabama so we're getting rain tomorrow too. And, I was really hoping to do more planting. But, Saturday looks fabulous!

Lizbeth,
thanks for the encouragement!

Andrea Cherie,
Yes, I read that. I was at her farm one day several years ago. One of her bees came swarming about my head and I swatted it away from my face into her face (by accident of course), and it stung her. See I told you I wasn't good with bees!

Lady Why,
I look forward to checking out your bee adventure. Some day I will get brave enough to do a post on the night we decided to move the bees. IT wasn't pretty.

grace and peace,
julie
