Robbing the Bees & the perfect sports storm


First the bee stuff - photos of Steves Squared robbing the bees this weekend. I think after it was all said and done we ended up with 32 1/2 pounds of honey. Not enough for Christmas gifts (spoiler for those of you who get gifts from us) and mead so next year we are going to add a third hive. Nice how I keep saying we? I should say him because I don't have that much to do with the whole backyard bee operation but I do enjoy the honey.




Back to me, it is my blog after all....


I love the fall, but this will be a tough weekend sports-wise for a fan like me; sort of the perfect storm. First of all we have The Red Sox - as of today only three games back in the standings for the American League East title and 5 games ahead in the wild card race. They play Saturday at 8:05pm. The boys are making left hand turns in Richmond(NASCAR) on Saturday night at 7:00pm but they are predicting rain from Hanna so it will probably run on Sunday. Which is when the 'Fins season opens at 1:00 against the Jets. We can TiVo all of them ( as we are meeting friends for dinner in Providence Saturday night - can't wait!) but when in the hell will I watch them all??? Hubby is somewhat interested but not as obsessive as me and will give me endless crap if I stay inside all day Sunday watching TV. But we don't get the NFL Package for nothing so I may need to take my chances - oh and the Sox play again Sunday at 3:00pm...

The view from my office today was nice, sort of distracting - you can see the colors are starting to change. I LOVE my view & am really starting to love the new job - I've been here for 3 months & it is a good fit. Don't want to go into too much detail but it's a great company. I'll try to get a photo of my view on a fairly regular basis or as it's interesting.

Possible jury duty tomorrow so I may not post again until the weekend if I'mNotSoWildAboutBlue Internet works or if I go to an Internet cafe. Disadvantage to living in the boonies is the very limited choices we have for Internet service...
