Of Sheep and Bees June 1, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — eastlakecounty @ 3:23 pm

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. 🙂

    You must learn how to listen to your messages remotely. I hate to think of you feeling demolished. If you have Embarq, call your home #, when your voice mail answers, hit * and follow the prompt to hear your voice mail.

    Pam, it is not fair to leave us hanging without telling us at least the jist of the message!

      Basically, Georgia called and said she had enjoyed watching the enormously large white chickens that had been walking around the yard. 🙂

      I guess you had to be there, but it was REALLY funny.
