Today is going to be a great day! It has to be!
First, my son, the missionary is going to call me. He has been serving in the Eugene, OR mission for 9 months. That means he only has 18 months to go. Wahoo! Mother’s Day is one of two days he can call home each year and today he is being allowed to Skype so we will actually get to see him. Yeah, he writes us at least once a week but as you can imagine this is special. I am blessed to have a son who is willing to put his life on hold for two years in the service of his fellow man. He is being blessed with incredible daily “growth opportunities” which will serve him throughout his life.
Second, today the weather promises to be beautiful and I’m sure I’ll be able to get in the hive. Yeah, it will be tight but I’ve lost some weight and the top bar hives are a tad larger than a box hive.
Here are some pictures of the hives. The blue one is the Casper hive which is the oldest hive. I call that queen Casper because I know she is there but I never see her. I don’t have a name for the new green top bar hive yet.
I hereby grant naming rights to whoever contributes the name I like best. That and a buck will get you a soda from McDonalds.
The small box hive on the left is my "bait" hive. It has one empty honey comb in it to attract a swarm if one flies by. I'll take it down after swarm season. The fence is there to keep the dogs off the new grass. Stupid dogs.
I see the sun is peeping over the tree tops so I’ll go on my walk now. Take care, be safe, Lisa
