We are wrapping up the day as fast as we can so we can hit the hay – wow, what a day. We opened up the honey house for a first peek at this year’s local honey crop and we had some wonderful visits with folks who have been waiting patiently for the local Wildflower to get here already. It’s just been a busy but fun day that started with the first customer at 8am. We also got to see some dear friends and family members from out of town and it just meant so much to us that each person made the time to swing by the Bee Ranch to support our business. While honey and honey pots were being sold inside, many loyal customers brought newbees (haha I just coined that so don’t tell me if you’ve seen anyone else using it) with them so we showed the newbees the super gentle hive in the backyard. What wonderful little bees. They just went about their honey-making business paying no mind to us. Smokey was a little confused by the fact that there were people coming and going but no one stopping under the pecan. He just parked himself by the chairs as if he was waiting for class. What a nut.
Now, I had intended to share a bit about the long weekend we enjoyed even though it truly felt like it flew by and how could a three-day weekend feel like a regular weekend anyway? Sigh. I barely made a dent in my to-do list. I would much rather it be like this than to feel bored, as I occasionally hear people utter. How you can be bored in life with so many things to see and do? Anyway, I am out of time. I must get to bed as we have so many things to get done in the morning as Mark heads back to his moonlighting job as Librarian Extraordinaire. I’ll pick this back up tomorrow. Goodnight.
