We even missed a few days of work. Children got three days off school. They weren't sad. Neither was I.
The bees are wrapped in their hives, snug as bugs in a rug.
The queens will finally get a vacation. They certainly deserve one.
Santa and his reindeer have come and gone.
We've eaten a lot of turkey.
Christmas trees have been taken down.
The fireworks are done, the champange sipped.
Happy New Year everyone!!!
The over-eating is finally easing down. The scales have not.... +++ I'll deal with that later.
Things are slowing down--not really but I remain hopeful--and now I have time to devote to other things.
I don't have to think about bees every hour of every day. I can take my mind off them. I can think of other things. I can do other things. Like deciding where I will hang the crochet bee that a friend gave me for Christmas.
Like redecorating the bathroom with an aquamarine theme...
Finally I'll have time to catch up on some reading. Something like this....
a book about how business would be so much better organized if only we copied the bees. I agree.
By the time I'm done all these things it'll practically be spring.
Then I'll have to start thinking about bees again.
