In so many ways…
Each year moves through…And we never know what the tide brings.
Yet…it seems we are always reminded of the beauty.
If we look.
The true beauty of this day.
To you and yours.
And...Thank you, from the bottom of my heart,
for being a part of my beauty.
What is Thanksgiving without
We have a well loved salad we have been making for years…14 years
Our oldest son has taken over making it
In our casa, each kidlet makes a part of the meal…Fun!
Part of the fun is pulling out the old recipes…this one was on the back of a calendar back in 1996…
where my writing lists piano lessons and holiday parties...
Your Thanksgiving traditions?
So I thought it was a regular Tuesday…
Everything was humming along…
Little did we know that a honey bee hive was swirling and working and storing
above our heads!
Enter All Bee Inc…
to the rescue!
The saw came out... and down went part of our soffitt…
Mothers hide your children…
Grab your epi pen too while you are at it
Apparently…In our soffit was over 100 Lbs of honey and comb
not to mention 100’s of thousands of workers and one big butt queen!
This hive is over 5 feet long….Oy.
Dripping with honey…
Yes. They were removed…Yes I am still in shock.
They found another one on the other side of the house.
Ok…so I am a little excited
cause it is A LOT cool and fresh and fallish…this week
So I think I may even decorate for Christmas.
You think I kid?
I do not kid…
This will only last for a few days
then back to the heat
Gotta grab it while I can.
Hot cocoa anyone?
Pennsylvania rep Chris Ross puts his money where his mouth is…
or is it mouth where his money is...ugh. Germy.
The environmental Commitee advisory member bought an old 1970’s house and barn and
worked to get it off the electrical grid…with a sustainable house and garden.
…Which is also beautiful.
after…incorporating local stone.
Inside and out uses all manner of modern green technology.
Green roof, solar panels…they even sell excess energy back to the grid!
outside the pool was removed, and the concrete used for paths and walkways…
Instead of water needing lawn…they used natural grasses and sedges to lead up to their home
The garden is now a meadow resplendent with native plants
and birds and butterflies…
