The sheep will be heading home this afternoon. Their owner called last night, very relieved because she thought Fred and Ethel had fallen victim to a coyote that’s been in the area. I am sad but sort of relieved, too, because I have no idea how to care for sheep.
The bees! I didn’t open the hive this weekend…there was just no good opportunity to do it calmly and since I don’t want to get stung I decided to wait. But this morning, I noticed that all the bees entering the coop had breadbaskets just FULL of pollen! This tells me (at least this is what I THINK is happening) that the bees have made enough cells to put pollen in.
Georgia, my next door neighbor, has apparently left a message on my answering machine that has Steve and Alex laughing so hard they can’t even tell me about it. All I know is, it’s something to do with chickens and it’s not bad. So I should be looking forward to hearing it but instead I’m just demolished because I can’t hear it until after 9:00 tonight.
Alex is traveling to Boston early tomorrow morning. Prayers for traveling mercies would be appreciated by her Mom. 🙂
