A Very SAD day

The beehives are empty!  There are many dead bees and something has taken all the honey as well.   2 weeks ago, there were so many bees, I added another box.  Now all is gone.  There  is lots of nectar as the flowers have been blooming, especially the blackberry.  There should be a hive full of honey.  Just dead bees.

IMG_4879Remember I purchased this book two weeks ago.   And because I promised you that I would make something out of it as soon as the bear could be put aside, I started on a quilt from it today.IMG_4885The name of this is “Jelly Forest” and  I’m using a jelly roll that I found in my supplies. (imagine that)    It is cut out and lying on the cutting table which means until it is put together, I won’t be cutting anything else out.  My hope is that will happen by week’s end.

We don’t have television, so just for fun last night we watched a free Amazon Prime movie – well actually 5 parts of it.  It is called Pioneer Quest.   This was set up so people could get a feel of how life was back than and films these two couples as they try to navigate their way as the settlers would in 1870. It is well worth watching and you will certainly count your blessings.
