I am in the process of moving in the house and getting everything situated. It is a difficult process trying to move and work full time. Needless to say I never realized that I had so much stuff! Sadly, I still have boxes of things that haven't been unpacked. I also have more things to move.............Lordy will I ever get done? I am very pleased at how the place is shaping up........it's everything I hoped for and more. May you all have a blessed evening.

In the right hand corner you can see some honey they have capped!

Here are the photos from the bee finale. After the flooding went down I took the bees to the new homestead. Unfortunately I was at work when the bees got put in the box. However my sister took these photos. The bees are now in their box and working away. My daddy is their beekeeper. He loves to sit and watch them in the morning. They sure are fascinating little creatures and best of all no one got stung! Now all we have to do is wait for the sweet honey we will be able to collect next year.

Some curious bees from the neighborhood
The bees arrived this morning, they were late getting here for some odd reason. I was expecting them yesterday. We have had severe flooding in our area. The problem is that I cannot get to the new homestead where the bee boxes are! So I have to try to keep them here and feed them until the water goes down. As soon as I got them this morning I sprayed them with water and the sugar syrup. I checked and made sure the queen was alive and she is. They are fascinating to watch. The neighborhood bees are wanting to join the party and are swarming around the box. I hope you are all having a great weekend and I will keep you guys updated on the bees.

I now have a great deal of empathy for you working moms and women. Monday I started a new full time job at a local law office as a file clerk. It has been a huge system shock for me as I am not a morning person and have been getting up at 6:20 am for work. When I get home I am so tired that I don't want to do anything let alone sew. I am hoping work will get easier because it is stressing me out learning their filing system. I hope it works out and I am going to try to at least commit a month to it. I managed to go to Curves today as I haven't been all week. I was naughty last month and gained a few pounds...........lol
Several of you requested the recipe to my hamburger crock pot steak I mentioned in a previous post. Below are the directions. Keep in mind it's not an exact recipe.
