waiting game

The past few days have been flying by fast.  I have no idea why.

 All that has been on my brain is babies and bees. 
Baby calves, baby lambs, and new a grandchild...and of course, waiting is the hard part!! 

We had another calf this morning. No more lambs since last Thursday. The new grand baby could be any day. Cassie's due date is the 18th. 

I am feeling anxious about the bees. I have been looking for a beekeeper that is willing to be a mentor. I have a feeling these beekeepers are elusive creatures. No one has answered my ad yet.

I set the hives up today in the spot where they will be until we get possession of our new place. I will add the frames Monday. The feeders I will set out prior to when the boys get home Monday evening.
The boys are heading down to Edmonton on Friday. They have some places they need to go to, and they will also visit Frank's dad over the weekend. 

Yesterday, Mike and Cassie met us in Fairview. Madeline went to stay with her sister until after the baby comes. When Cassie goes into labour, Madeline is there to look after Ben while Mike and Cass are at the hospital.

The weather folks are calling for rain and snow this weekend. 
Which is just great! (Sarcasm) 
Murphy's Law. 
This would be the time that there will be calves and lambs being born. Here are the reason why:
One-snow. Two-I am here alone. Three-this is what happened last year. 

And doesn't history repeat itself?

  1. You can do it, and congrats on the grandbaby-in-waiting! Can't wait to hear you're a new grammy.

  2. Best wishes for the new grandbaby!

    Our bees seem to bee happy (I couldn't resist the corny pun). Soon-to-be-hubby is almost as anxious about his hive as I am about pending goslings, so I feel for ya on the waiting! :)

  3. I am usually a very patient person...but this waiting is making me very anxious! Nail biter even!
