In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Signs of Spring
You know how when you're a kid and you go to the fair and you hear the music from the carnival atmosphere and you get all excited inside? Well, that's how I feel when I hear a robin singing for the first time each spring. Oh they're around in the winter months, but they don't sing. Last night, I was getting in the car to go to a meeting, and I heard a robin singing! I had to run back in the house and tell my husband. And this morning, I heard it again! I think spring has sprung....finally. It's been a long winter with snow on the ground since the end of November. Robin's singing make me happy!
I'm 59. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 21 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found dumped in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. In 2016 we moved to the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
