I do not want to go back.
As much as this past week was frustrating and depressing at times (at one point I hobbled outside to sit in the sun hoping it would improve my mood) there was a silver lining.
Usually, I don't have time to keep up with blogs- even the ones I love- but through this whole foot fiasco, I had time. So, not only did I catch up on a couple I haven't read in awhile, I came across two that I really, really like.
The first is Walden Effect. A very kind commenter suggested I hop over and read some of their bee happenings. They are about so much more than bees. They chronicle what they're doing on their homestead in southwestern VA ("58 acres of swamp and hillside"). I highly suggest you check them out (both husband and wife take turns writing posts) as well as their nifty watering system for chickens and their book, The Weekend Homesteader: A Twelve-Month Guide to Self-Sufficiency.
The second is Honey Bee Suite. Rusty has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to honey bees and her stories and adventures are mesmerizing. Even if you have no intention of ever getting bees, she's worth the read. One second I'm entranced, the next on the edge of my seat and the next, laughing out loud (particularly in regards to the post about getting a bee stuck in her bra- that's never going to happen to me...right?).
Happy summer reading, lovelies, and thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I've felt them.
P.S. No one asked me to write about or mention these blogs. I did so because I think they're worth my time (and yours).Pin It
