Lily trying to stay cool in her pool.
I wonder if there's room for me in there, too....
Welp, I'm trying to get back into this bloggie thing again, so bear with me.
While I was taking a break from the computer, Blogger went and changed the looks of everything on me, so now I'm having to figure things out as I go.
Summer came a bit early for us this year- we've already been having some unusually warm weather and the forecast for this weekend is supposed to be near 90. *Whew* We need rain, too- the ground is drying up and the plants and gardens are needing a drink.
Here's what else is going on around here:
The Buzz from the Hive:
The honey bee colony that moved into the home we set out for them back in March have been working up a storm.... we've added 3 new supers to the hive in the last month ("supers" are boxes with frames for storing honey) and these little workers have already filled them full of honey! I did a post last year about the precious little honey bee, and in researching some of my facts I found I came across something that blew my mind- it requires 10,000 worker bees to gather a pound of honey, and they will fly the equivalent of more than twice around the world to gather it. Talk about being "busy as a bee"... that wears me out just thinking about it!
The Scoop from the Coop:
The final count for spring chicks this year was 34- and I've sold all of them but 8. I'm trying to find a home for 4 of them who I'm pretty sure are roosters. (And that's one thing we don't need around here is more roosters...) You would think that after hatching off that many babies, the last thing these crazy little fuzzy-bottomed hens would want to do is sit on more eggs....
And if you look close enough at this picture, she almost looks like she's smiling.
From my Sewing Room:
A few months ago I made it a point to try to get my sewing room more organized- and keep it that way. I especially wanted to figure out a way to tame my fabric stash, which can get really out of hand at times. (Not that I have that much fabric, but after I dig through it a few times looking for something it looks like a bomb went off.)
One day I found these cool little organizers on someone's blog-
You just tuck the ends into these little "clips" and wrap the fabric around it and once you're done, it looks like a miniature bolt of fabric.
I wanted to keep two fabrics together for certain projects so I wrapped them on the same bolt.
Now I'm sweet-talking Hubby into building me some beautiful wood shelves to store them on... *Squeeeal*
(If you want more info on these organizers, click here to go to the website.)
Well, that's enough for today I guess... hope I didn't bore you too bad.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
