                                                                                  Laughing
                                                                        Eating strawberries
                                                                 Baking almond pound cake
                                                           Writing overdue thank you notes
                                                      Hanging clothes out to dry in fresh air
                                                    Celebrating another year of life gone by
                                                Organizing bathroom drawers and cabinets
                                          Taking pictures of my gorgeous newborn nephew
                                    Painting 20 delicate little fingernails a cotton candy pink
                                 Basking in some soul stirring music gifted by a sweet friend
                                      Soaking in the warm sunshine during reading lessons
                                            Enjoying great company during girls night out
                                              Savoring a pedicure alongside a dear friend
                                                      Crocheting tri-colored wash clothes
                                                             Drowning in a sea of laundry
                                                               Watching a favorite movie
                                                                        Grocery shopping
                                                                                Dreaming

Honeybees, Baby!

His labor is a Chant~
His idleness~ a Tune~
Oh, for a Bee’s experience
Of Clovers, and of Noon!
~Emily Dickinson

The honeybees have  finally arrived, yay!   They arrived in this box last weekend, and they were feelin’ a bit couped up to say the least.  You could hear their buzzing from several yards away!

Transporting these babies from this cardboard chariot to their new home, sweet home required a steady hand. I knew that wouldn’t be mine, so I signed up to take the pictures instead, shutter release buttons don’t sting do they?

Now we watch and wait for these girls to do what they do, my mouth waters with anticipation!
