Yeah, That’s the Bee Man

The story goes like this.

On Saturday afternoon, we were all hanging out in the backyard, when Katie chased out new kitten up one of the big trees. The kitten, who’s claws I had just trimmed the day before, go stuck up in the tree and was too scared to climb back down. I told the kids she’d come down eventually to where I could reach her and we’d just wait for that to happen. But then Katie, watching where the kitten is climbing up in the tree, points and says, “what’s that, mommy?”

“That” was a large swarm of bees. I did not get a picture of the large swarm of bees, but it looked a lot like this:

yeah. so.

The kitten is headed right up the branch towards the big swarm of bees. The kids (and I) are freaking out. So I send the kids inside, find the extension ladder and get the kitten out of the tree.

Then asked google who to call. As always, google was very informative.

So this morning, the bee man showed up, put our ladder in a different place, climbed up the tree, and moved the bees to a box which he then stuck in his car and drove off with.

These are the exciting things that happen to me.

Applekeh

I don’t like apples.

Sorry apples, it’s not personal.

But I love the star shape the seeds make.

Wine with FishTankeh

Fud, the amazingly most wonderfulest friend anyone could ever want, brings me back stuff from the land of chocolate and cheese. She brought me wine one time and here I am drinking it after a night at the movies with my friend Shari.

Yum.

Can you tell my kids are out of town? ha! But the sky was pretty and I was trying to do something else and I turned around and saw this and went “oooo… creepy!” haha.

I think I need to maybe get out of my house or something. I haven’t left here since Tuesday…..
