(First of all...aint that cheese kewel?! *points up* My Mom made that. :D )
Okay...so...I hadn't really planned on a blog post today...but turns out I got enough pictures of enough semi interesting things to do one. So why not?! :D
The main event of the day was harvesting our honey. Mr. Russ C. had dropped his cow off to visit with our bull the other day and came to pick her up today. He really knows his stuff, especially when it comes to bees, so he helped Dad get the honey in and ready for extraction!
Been doing a little bit of prep for tomorrow...I think that holidays are only good when they give you an excuse to hang out with friends and family...(and maybe reflect a bit on the reason for the holiday.)
Anyhoo...not a ton to say....I'll let the pictures do the talking right now.
Y'all be sure to smile and shine for Christ!
Over and out for now...
|Dad and Mr. Russ and Mom|
|Da cow. Not sure what her name is.|
|They were stuffing everything they could find in there to make smoke. Even sent me to the house to get some fabric...'twas rather amusing.|
|ALIENS!!!!!!! Scream and run.|
|My beeeeautiful sista. Dawgon she's so cool. ^_^ (But don't tell her I said that.)|
|Dad doing...something with the cooler. I am sure it was very kewel. Whatever it was...|
|Is it just me, or do I have the most beautiful dog on the planet? It's just me? No...it's not. He's the most beautiful. *nods*|
|Dad on left with his super cool brush and Mr. Russ doing...something. Hmmm...these guys are doing a lot of "something".|
|Two more hives. Happily undisturbed. (See that sky in the background? I got one word for you...HUMIDITY. Gotta love Bamy!)|
|I'm not sure what this is, but it was sitting all by itself. Have no idea where it came from. Looks to be a fruit of some kind. And it caught my eye, sitting in the dirt like it was. Kinda pretty colors.|
|I'm not saying anything. Except that this is another attempt to cure myself of my overly consuming arachnophobia. Anybody got any more tips? Sheeeeeesh...yuuuuck...ewww...aaaaah....okay...moving on...|
|Oh, yeah. Back to the honey. Here's Dad using that fancy knife that gets all hot to scrape the comb off of the frame, thus opening the comb and removing the caps so that the honey can be properly extracted.|
|Aint that cool?|
|I kinda think this picture is kewel. Don't you?|
|It's...SHINY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D (A close up of honey. And it's shiny!!!!!)|
|And here's the honeycomb bidding you all farewell! :D Guess I got kinda crazy in this post. Oh well...what can I say? That's me. :P I'm totally nuts...and I love it. Yep. Yep. Yep.|
