Last Update…..Promise

Thats the box they left overnight for all the bees to find their way into.

Yes…those are Holiday Lights we put on every night in support for our healthcare workers.

That box is such a beautiful box isn’t it? I think I mentioned it here somewhere that I was signed up for a Bee Keeping class before Covid came to town. The instructor canceled all her classes and moved them to online. I chose not to do that because I am that odd student who likes to sit in class with pen and paper in hand. But I told her I would sign up again once all of this calms down. I also had some of my friends sign up with me because they wanted to have hives on their property but they canceled too.

So we had a happy ending tonight….the bees just left 45 minutes ago. They are being moved to Julian which is a wonderful place for them.

  1. I agree, there are some things that I just can’t learn by hearing about….I have to somehow “do it”…write it down or actual do the actions literally or something. But I think I would be afraid of working with Bees although I could see it also being fun to learn how. ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, it is a pretty box.

    1. It’s just the way my brain works. And being older…taking classes was actually fun.
      I would love to make my own honey….well I should say I would love to offer these wonderful bees a place to live in return for their honey.

      1. Maybe when things get normal, although it seems like at times it never will, you will be able to follow that dream and have a hive and your own honey. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Oh…I am pretty sure I am going to do this. My family has enough property in South Dakota. I am going to have to build a house there so I can go back and forth. Some bee farmers rent their bees out so they travel across America. I don’t think I want to rent my bees out…..and if I were to consider it they would have to be extreme organic farmers.

          1. Good luck, sounds like you have made up your mind. I always wanted to go to Maine…because I watched a show that was supposedly set there, but kept letting other things interfere. Finally, after 40 years of dreaming and not doing, I finally just said “I am going to go…I don’t care if I have to put the whole thing on plastic”.

            That’s pretty much what i had to do, but I did it, and I was glad I did. Now people ask me what I think of the trip and I say “I went, I enjoyed, and don’t have any reason to go back”. The point is that I finally fulfilled that dream.

            1. YOU ODDBALL! Maine has always been one of my TOP dream destinations. To go and rent a lighthouse for a week during the fall. I mean….I could do it since I retired and I don’t know what my hold up is. Well…now it’s Covid. But it’s on my list along with Nantucket.
