Tag Archives: Weekly Bee COunt

This week has flown by far too quickly. A few extra hours in the day would not be frowned upon. I have been enjoying this warmer weather, but I pretty sure that it's done now.

House is up for sale, again. Hoping for a quick & painless sale. The process is annoying and tiring but when I get aggravated and impatient with the process, I have to remember that it's a means to an end.

My mom is going through chemotherapy again. This is the third time that the cancer is back, in a old and new place. I'm trying not to stress and worry because it won't do me any good. I'm just pushing ahead and taking things one day at a time. Or some days one hour at a time.


I'm concentrating on finishing school with good grades. Currently classes are going well. Java is the most difficult, but I will get through it. I'm thinking about business plans/employment plans. I'm trying to finish my book. I'm dealing with my mom's illness and all that it entails. It's a lot. At times like this I know why people have personal assistants, or just walk away. But it's life and I know this is making me stronger and preparing me for what the future holds.

Green, although it looks brown.

In the middle of all this, I'm sick with some virus. Which if I don't have time for. Being around someone with a compromised immune system is nerve-wracking to say the least. I'm drinking my green juice, taking Oil of Oregano, a spray or 2 of silver water, and my regular vitamins. But this is the first or second (I can't remember) time that am grateful for online classes. I can work from the couch, in pajamas, and have a nap in the middle of the day, if need be. Wow, this is a depressing post, but it's life. Hopefully things will pick up by next week.

Till next time,


the-unofficial-fallThe unofficial start of Fall. Kai has graced my bedroom with her presence, for the first time since the end of last Winter. A new/old sleeping buddy. Claps for getting woken up several times during the night.

If I had my farm, this big boy ("B.J.") would be coming home with me. He's huge, beautiful, a great walker, listens well. He is the s**t. I love big dogs and I love that I chose to dog walk.

I'm still in the process of figuring a good schedule for this online schooling. I think that I will be spending 1-2 days at the public library, getting my weekly reading done. I just don't think that I have a comfortable work space set up. Who knows? I'm trying.

Weekly Bee Count: 21: bumble bees; 11: honey bees; 0: unknown bee species; 0 monarch butterflies I'm assuming this will probably be the last couple weeks of the bees gathering their winter stores. Good luck bee friends, I hope to see you in the Spring. Seriously I pray that you come back and do not lose half or more of your colony over the Winter.

Till next time,
