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.
