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!

Birthdays, Bees, Boxes and more...

An overview of last week...

It was Vickie's birthday,

my niece's first holy communion,

Mother's Day and

Mom's birthday.

I had a lot of shopping to do for gifts and food. I had our Mom's over for brunch. I love setting the table like this and enjoying a relaxing morning with friends/family. Don't you just love those dishes and that table cloth? Garage sale finds! 12 piece place setting - 20 bucks.

I also cleaned out some dead beehives getting them ready for splits. Splits are timely and it was time. You have to 'play the weather' when you mess with bees. More on splits later...maybe Friday.

I did go to a few sales with my friend Teresa, and she helped me clean the house to get ready for Sunday brunch. She is a good friend!

I got these brand new boots for 4 bills....

I'm becoming very picky with what I buy, and I'm sure I'm in big trouble for this, but I bought a brand new Vera Bradley purse for $15.00.

I quit buying Vera's at the store because they are now made in China and not Ft. Wayne, Indiana. But I will buy one at a garage sale....carry it for awhile...and put it away in the purse closet to be forgotten about until my purge-atory friends come over and start tossing!

I took a couple of walks with my Shug in the woods...

I'm getting muscles! I AM!

I also went to AT&T, trying to figure out how we are going to talk on the phone, use the Internet, and watch t.v. It's crazy. We're only 20 minutes away from our current house, but nothing will be the same. Back in the day when one would move, one would just call Indiana Bell for an appointment and someone would come out and hook up the phone. You'd set up the t.v. antenna and you were done. Now it's confusing. We've gone from party lines to personal cell phones and black and white t.v. that the family would sit around in the living room and watch together, to watching t.v. on our computers. Do we even need a living room in our new house? Hmmm, never thought about that.

Next post - Granny Bee weekend coming soon.

Oh yeah - be sure to wish the SCRIBE HAPPY BIRTHDAY today!
