So like, I was at Yoga/Meditation class tonight, and suddenly at about 6:30pm, all I could think about was BEES BEES BEES. After the class, I pottered along to the garden, picked some tomatoes and landed home about 7:30pm (still thinking of bees) Mr Duck Herder took me strait out onto the front deck to show me the bees that had swarmed at my friend Eric's house today which he caught and promptly bought over to live on the front deck - AT 6:30!!!
I am SWOONING with joy. Do you think she will like me? I forgot to mention that over the weekend I finally got it together to go out to Murrumbateman to buy a bee suit / space suit / fencing suit. And a smoker and a hive tool and some gloves. You see, I LOVE bees, I am just highly respectful of them, and I know that they will like me more, and be more accommodating of my clumsy tendings if I feel safe and calm and secure and totally UN BEAR LIKE.
Thus the suit.
Welcome Queen Atalia.
I will try my very very best to look after you and serve you well as your humble servant.
I love you already.
PS, Your Royal Highness, Eric informs me that if you could perhaps just persevere until Wednesday, he will bring you some more combs full of honey and nectar and stuff. My Queen, if that is to your liking.
PPS, I love you.
