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!

First Friday and Coral Belle
On Friday, our downtown had what they are calling First Friday. And on Friday, I had my niece for the night. I wanted to go to First Friday, she did not. My Shug, my niece and I went :-)
But I also made dinner plans. Remember this kid? I'm sure you don't....I used to "Babysit" him!!! Blogettes, this kid used to wrap his arms around my leg when I was walking across the hard wood floor so he could go for a ride!!! He was three then. He is driving now. I can't stand it! Where does the time go?
Before dinner we went to First Friday. This is only the second one they've had and there was a lot of people there! And my niece didn't want to leave! She even asked if we could go again next month, and bring her Mom!
The first stop was the art gallery downtown and they were having a special Women of the World display. It's still going on so for those of you who live in town, go. You will not be disappointed. It was very inspiring.
We were so inspired the next morning we got out the clay.
If you look really close, you might find some little itty bitty sprouts in this soil. I planted some chamomile seeds in my fairy garden, which is a potted plant that I've showed you before. I'll show you again in a few days.
Here is the icing on the cake. My niece wanted to see my new camper. She is all excited about having fun in it with her cousins. When she saw it she got this expression on her face and said something like...."well, you weren't kidding....you do have to fix it up!"
And then she said....and I might mention I LOVE THIS.....she said, "I really like that you named it 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 I tell ya......
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 23 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found 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!)
