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!

We had snow last night.
Not a lot of snow. But the wind was howling outside our one room living area. The snow was swirling outside our patio area.
I couldn't sleep. Woke up at 3:30 and I got out of bed several times to look out the window. I felt so alone. No neighbors across the street. No Internet service. We lost power twice, and the wind.....whooOOooOOOoooOo........
Now, during the day...it looks so peaceful outside.
I wonder how my bees are doing.
My Shug wonders if the deer are in our valley, staying warm.
Somehow...for some reason...I can always find peace.... in nature.
I'm 57. 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 20 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. And we are currently living in 500 square feet in one room in the basement of this house we are building. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the 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!)
