A huge bumblebee hangs on a vitex bloom while trying to gather pollen.
No, that is not an earthquake you're feeling... just the sound of me starting up my computer and actually sitting down to write something. Try to remain calm.... things will settle down once I get my rusty brain (and fingers) to figure out how to use the keyboard again. :)
After such a prolonged (and unplanned) absence from my blog, you would think I would have tons of pictures to share, but surprisingly enough, I haven't had my camera out of the house much at all. One reason is the heat~ the few times I have taken it outside, I've had to wait several minutes for the lens to stop fogging up from the change in temperature. Ahhh, summer.
Oh, I have taken pictures of Lily Belle... here she is napping and using her favorite stuffed animal for a pillow.
And I've managed to take a few in the kitchen.
Stuffed peppers from the garden...
( Double yum!)
Hubby and I both got new "smart phones"~ he needed one for his job and I needed one to try to keep up with all this new-fangled technology. I still haven't figured out how to use mine. In other words, my smart phone is making me feel dumb~ imagine the irony of that. At least I can make a phone call on it. Everything else... eh...
We're taking honey from our bees this week... we were planning on doing it 4th of July since Hubby was off from work that day, but the weather prevented that. We had nearly 10 inches of rain that week and it's never a good idea to open up the hive when it is damp outside... you don't want any moisture to get inside and potentially ruin the honey. I'll let you know next week how much honey our sweet little worker girls made this year.
And it appears as if the hens have been taking karate lessons, but I'm not sure....
There is just so much to do this time of year... just keeping the grass mowed is a twice-a-week job.
You can tell by this picture that our little homestead is very green right now...
but I'm very thankful for the green because it gives the sheepies a lot to eat. :)
I hope to post something again soon, but most of all I want to get caught up with all that has been going on in your world so I'm going to be busy visiting blogs this week....
Happy Monday, everyone!
