Tonight the Spurs play the Celtics -- GO SPURS!!! First quarter looked pretty good except the last play. Not good. I saw these shoes at the last game we went to this month...cool! I liked them a lot.
I'm so glad today is Friday. It's been another exhausting week but a good one. Yesterday I had some friends do a work intervention...no emailing or working late into the night. LOL. But how am I suppose to get through emails if I don't do that, especially since during the day I spend most of my time in meetings. Hmm. Well, last night I met my best friend in San Antonio and we had the best time catching up after months of not seeing each other! We ate at Pei Wei at Huebner (not impressed though I did like the edamame) and then a great cup of coffee at the Grind, which is in the same shopping center. That Huebner area is crazy! After driving into SA traffic around 6:30p, I am reminded of why I really like living in a small town. No doubt our traffic jams are WAY BETTER than SA's. I miss living there, but not the traffic. :)
It's warm (upper 80s) this week so they are really active. Mark says the bees in the country are doing well. I'm going to have to think of names for our backyard bees and our country bees. :) Oh, maybe I'll call them City Bees (since we live near downtown Seguin) and Country Bees. Ok, so Country Bees are great and Mark saw the first drones. I call them the Queen's Mates. She has lots of them, which is fantastic since that will help our hives grow.
The City Bees are also doing great. As a matter of fact, the other day after work, I went outside to check on Mark as he worked on his shed project and I saw that the bees were very active. They were flying everywhere and all over the hive. Mark reminded me that they were on their "first flight" and I thought it was really neat! Our little baby bees were everywhere. There were so cute...I don't know how to explain it but you notice they are flying differently but you don't know what is it. Well, I didn't. But Mark did. Good thing I got myself a real beekeeper to teach me these things.
Here's a different Bee First: this week, a sweet little bee landed on my arm as we stood on the deck. I remained calm with Mark's coaching and i watched as she wiggled her little body, especially her rear end. And I just kept thinking she's going to sting me. But then she flew off. And Mark said she left me a present...she POOPED on my arm!!!! It was hilarious. I didn't even know bees did that. It wasn't bad but I won't go into details here. If you really want to know, ask me if you see me out and about. LOL. Have a great weekend!
