Well here it is Tuesday morning. I can not believe how fast the days zoom! Yesterday we helped to move one of our sons and his family. We have two little grandsons staying with us, and one of them is sleeping in my spot in the bed! :-) I am not as young as I once was, and not in very good shape. I was a tired woman last night when we got home. It is TIME to get out and resume daily walking!!
The baby has an official name. Ta Da......drum roll please..........her name is Paislee Jo.......So after all the debate, she was a Paislee after all. lol!
AT the Hospital
On sat. we picked up two new hives of bees. This is always a fun day for all of us. We buy our bees from Jones Bee in SLC. http://www.jonesbee.com/The kids always talk their dad into new gloves, or a new veil, or whatever they thought they needed to have in order to "tend" bees, and they always come away with some kind of honey candy! Sometimes I buy wick for dipping candles, or taper candle molds, or sometimes I buy a new chunk of bees wax to wax my linen thread with. One of my favorites is to "people" watch. I know......... but I like to see what kinds of folks come to buy bees. I always get get a kick out of this, and then I realize, that I myself am one among the numbers!!!! lol!!!!! There are a huge variety of us........some look like hippies, some like yuppies, some look like farmers....some look like business men......some bring all their kids......some bring dogs......some come in company trucks, some come in mini vans, and station wagons.....some have suvs. Some are in a hurry, some take their time. The Jones Bee yard is filled with noise and laughter and people. I bet they are glad when the bees are all gone to their new homes, and there are no more people hanging around!
Our 2 and our DD's 1 hive in the trunk of the car at home
All the way home, the trunk of the car is buzzing with the sound of bees, and inevitably, the "hitchhiker bees" escape the trunk and find their way up in the car. This has worried some of my children more than others, and most of the time the errant bee gets squashed! LBC is no exception to the others. He had some yummy honey candy this trip, and he did squish a bee or two. Lucky, none of us are allergic to bees! We bought two new hives for ourselves this year, one for our DD, two for a friend, and two for a co worker of DH. So all together we had 7 hives buzzzzzzing in the car! It is a total family affair to watch and help put the bees in the hive boxes. Our little grandson, stepped on a bee in the house, and it did sting his little foot. I felt really bad because he kind of limped around on it for a while. That was the only sting this year, other than the dogs who just don't know how to stay out of the middle of anything! lol It has been a treat to have our own honey all these years, and it has also been a treat to watch as my children tended bees with their dad! Big guy in white bee suit, veiled and gloved, whole bunch of little guys in white or light colored clothes, the legs of their pants duck taped tight, wearing too huge of hats and veils tied on them, following after their Dad, talking and asking questions non stop!
.......................................... I think the honey was actually just a by product of tending bees........lol
