Busy as a bee

I'm actually hoping for rain soon for an excuse to stay in the house and do quieter things...but the exercise is good for me.  I can relate to the bee buzzing from one thing to another.  These guys are my friends, unlike the one that stung me in the garden yesterday.  Sometimes I think they are getting irked at all the extra plants I'm putting in - more work for them I suppose. 

When I had the car loaded down with cardboard to take to recycling I stopped at Shopko to catch some sales.  I didn't have any place to put my new purchases, so Zelda ended up holding one of them.  Why is she in the car you might ask?  No, it's not to use the carpool only lanes, we don't have those here.  I didn't want to leave her sitting in the garage...although now it's nice and clean and would be okay.  And I certainly can't leave her out all the time or she'd get wet from the sprinklers or rain.  So the safest place appeared to be in the back seat.  The guy who loaded up the birdseed yesterday never said a word...but then again they know me, so he probably didn't think anything unusual about it.

If I ever do decide to stop working and sit down, I have a nice area in the arbor now to do so.  I do sit for just a few minutes each morning out here to reflect on my many blessings before starting my day.

Long Live the Queen of Contentment


  1. Fantastic! Sometimes I wish I had a Zelda to keep me company while doing errands, quiet company that is, and so helpful!

  2. That is so funny that the guy never commented on Zelda. She would be worth a second look at least.
    Your arbor looks wonderful. Don't you ever rest? I was out gardening for a couple hours and came in worn out. You're out there hauling block, dirt, putting in waterfalls, building arbors ... all day long. What do you do in your spare time?

  3. Oh, that arbor would be perfect here. What a restful place to sit and read or just rest. As for Zelda, I think she's just too precious!! You're right though, she would be perfect for our special two person lanes here during rush hours. I wonder why no one has tried it? (Maybe they already have?) Oh well, you have a great evening.
