In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, and anything else that happens to pop into my head. Sit back, relax for five minutes of a day, 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 54. 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 17 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have two unruly dogs.
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. 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!)
