2nd beehive gone

we sold our 2nd beehive and all the remaining equipment tonight. it's official; we're no longer keeping bees. i won't say "we're no longer beekeepers" because i definitely think we'll do it again. but for now, we have no bees.

i've definitely got mixed feelings about it. i was sad to see them go. but the woman who bought this hive was so sweet and seemed so happy to have them. she used to have a bunch of hives years ago. but her husband died and she suddenly was raising children alone. so she had to give up the hobby. her last child is about to go away to college, so she said she's looking to start the hobby up again. i was really happy to have them go to someone who was so smitten with them. it made me feel a little bit better.

next hurdle will be the cats. gasp.

Maybe in Africa, you can become killer bee keepers.

The cats. Believe me, I know how hard that is going to be. I still miss mine and my doggies.
