To be as cool as those two. Life goals right there. Ha.
How's your week been? Mine has been decent. I have been running around doing all sorts of shit all week and it has just flown by so fast. Paint colors, house scraping, kids, family, paperwork, bills, the mr in and out, working until 8 at night all week. We really know how to alway have something to do. (even when were don't want to be doing anything) The apartments need attention, everyone in school is either out or getting out soon, summer is basically here and plans are being thrown around. But what really sticks out in my mind from this week are all the damn mosquito bites that I have gotten, like 8 million because the mosquitoes are so so so so bad around my house right now, like 10 times worse then anywhere else in the world. They are swarming by the hundreds and are starving for blood. I cannot walk out of the house without getting bitten and if I want to spend more then 2 seconds out there, I throw on heavy carharts, a thick hooded jacket and spray the crap out of myself with lemon eucalyptus which does absolutely nothing. It has been kind of miserable and I am praying that they will die down soon. I don't want to be wearing clothes all summer long to be outside. (correction. I don't want to be wearing heavy clothes, I want to be waring summer clothes.)
We have been having some good time though. Barb swung by one afternoon and ended up on a tandem bike ride adventure with the mr and I (I don't ride tandem, I like the freedom of being the only one on the bike) We biked around town looking at all the junk that people have been leaving curbside because schools out and that means everyone is moving out. We spent a rainy day with the littles where Miley took to reading all afternoon, into dinner, and beyond, Judah and the mr painted, and I ran around with Coco, throwing the Buzz and Woody ball at his head. And I went and spent far to long at the fabric store, buying 15 yards of fabric to make curtains for the porch. Got to love Memorial Day fabric sales and of course all the displays of the pretty threads. Fabric stores, they can get this lady here in trouble.
Yesterday, we drove up to the northern parts of Vermont, had a dinner picnic, stopped at a roadside cajan seafood place (in the middle of VT ) and got the mr an ice-cream cone. After the sweet treat, it was go time. We got to the apiary at 6:30, just as the bees were coming home from a short, wet day, and picked up our new ladies. Bees Bees Bees. And there were baby sheep there too. So sweet, they actually let me pet them, unlike the bees that were a little fussy and bumping against out heads. We loaded them up, got them home, placed them next to the hive, popped the cap, and let them be.
Today I am going to bike into town, hit up the gym and the library, maybe stop at the coop too. Then the mr and I are going to do a quick install of the nuc, get the ladies tucked into their new home, and hopefully get an eye on the queen. After that, I don't know. I would like to spend the rest of the day outside, and my garden could use a little weeding, so maybe I'll just do that. If the mosquitos would just all leave me the fuck alone.
