Well we didn't win the lottery either - or at least the one worth all that money. We did win the lottery of life which put us being born in this country and in a family that instilled the American dream of working hard and reaping the rewards of our labor. What more could we ask for?
I am coming to you from North GA where I'm visiting my parents over springbreak. As many of you know Dad suffers from dementia and that's not going to get any better. My Mom is his primary caregiver and thankfully she continues to be testing clear of her breast cancer. Her strength is returning but dealing with everything is mind numbing. My sisters live in the area and try to help but like everyone they have their challenges, too. We'll continue to "endure to the end" as the scriptures instruct us and hopefully learn something in the process.
My bee class is over and not surprisingly we all earned "Bs."
Mine should be arriving at the end of the month. DK is offering a reward for "Bee puns" if anyone has one. He will give double the reward if the pun refers to both bees and coal. What a deal! I have the hive site picked out and just have a few things left to do. I painted the hive a nice aqua marine that I got off the "oops" shelf at Home Depot. It should blend right in with the other greens in the backyard. As an urban beekeeper I plan to practice the "less the neighbors see the better it will be" theory of beekeeping; not that I'm hiding anything but I'm not advertising it either. I did inform the neighbors to my left and right and they are cool with the idea. I bribed them with "local" honey in the spring if the bees make it through the winter.
I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Have a great day, Lisa
