Saffold Dam

Falls from afar

This evening I am feeling somewhat rebellious....I am not checking my work email. Well, I tried earlier but kept having some tech issues so I got out slightly frustrated. It's been a long, tiring week and I feel absolutely drained. I think I could have gone straight to bed when I got home. I don't want anyone to feel bad for me; I often find writing helps me to let go of things - writing therapy. We have so much going on at work but I still enjoy being there and as always, I am learning so much everyday. And I am so blessed to have encountered plenty of wonderfully nice people to balance out the not-so-sunny personalities.

Anyway, to escape a bit, I did or am doing the following this evening:
  1. Watched Mark finish up splitting the hive in the backyard. Now there are three!!! I'll snap it in good day light.
  2. Went for Chinese food. Comfort food. Some nights, you simply do not feel like cooking.
  3. Listened to Mark tell me all about his day with the bees! I wish I could have watched him split the hives of Country Bees.
  4. Learned that the queen bee does not just walk out the hive "door." One of the hives did not have a queen and Mark has theorized about how that could have happened...that's another post altogether.
  5. Cruised around town, talking through things that concern me with the greatest guy ever. You know who.
  6. Talked to my niece about things. Laughed.
  7. Missed all my nieces and nephews.
  8. Caught up A BIT with blogging and Flickr. Just a bit. Oh, and Facebook too.
  9. Listening now to some of my favorite songs, currently we're on Yoyo Ma essentials.
  10. Got showered and into my softest jammies.

I LOVE the heron pic so much (and the reflection is great) I knew a heron once who stood on a boulder in the middle of a narrow river... it was his/her favorite fishing spot I guess, for years.
