The pest control lady and the beekeeper told us if the bees and/or honey were just left in the wall it makes a bad smell to compare to skunk odor for about 3 weeks. Also another bee (hornets?) can take over the nest. Will sure be glad to have it done. The beekeeper is coming over in about 3 weeks.

Our youngest son is coming down tonight, not sure when our oldest son is coming.
I have a TOPS picnic tomorrow afternoon.
We have a parade next Saturday.

Hey, my newsletter came!

Oh my, that is really something with the bees. Hope it all works out OK. What would keep the honey from seeping through your inside walls, especially if sun is on the outside of the house? Hope it doesn't come to that.

New Years is no big thing for us either. I'm thinking we may have our 9 mo old granddaughter here this year though if mom and dad want to go out. We get her on Sundays and she spends the night and Mondays here. We are hoping to get her Saturday night this week or early Sunday so we can take her to a big parade in our town Sunday morning at 10am.

What's everyone up to this weekend?

Deb & Vicki: I wish I could send some of our rain that way.

Deb: I'm with you - summer is flying right by. On the other hand I love autumn. I confess I just changed my screensaver to an autumny one. You know if your August goals are to much you can always modify to make it work for you. That's one thing I love about SparkPeople - very reasonable!

Vicki: Yikes! New Years Day already. That's one of my least favorite holidays- sort of blah to me. When I was a kid I loved the idea of staying up til midnight. Now I usually just go to bed saying "I know for sure the new year will get here without me having to be awake for it!

Here's the next installment on the bee story: the pest control lady (yes, a young, pretty lady - would remind you of Sandra Bullock) came and decided the bees were honeybees. Not so simple. Honeybees are on the endangered species. So she got us in contact with a family out in the country who do beekeeping and he is going to come up in a few weeks - will have to remove some siding - and he vaccuums the bees into a beebox. He said he takes 10# of the honey and we can have the rest. I guess honey prices and beeswax is skyrocketing. No charge - he just wants the bees and we will have one very small section to put siding back on. Who'd have thought it would be all this!

I like my haircut. I can almost run my fingers through my hair and it's good. I also like the new shop my haircutter is in.

Okay, waiting for the mailman emoticon maybe my newsletter comes today!

Deb, I'm going to think about my goal for this month. I am so happy to say this is my 33rd straight day of exercising. I think I need to be more careful about my calorie limits.

Five months from today will be New Years Day and we will be putting holiday decorations away AGAIN!

We really need the rain here in WI, too. Flooding in June and now so dry as all the rain keeps missing us.

A good weekend to all!

It's hard to believe that summer is almost over, I just don't know where time goes.

Well, with the start of a new month I'm going to start new things. I'm going to try at least one new recipe a week. I'm going to go to the library at least 2 days a week to job hunt. I'm going to . . . Let's hope I'm not trying too much at once.

We could really use some rain, it's been warm / hot, but not the HOT that really gets to you. Sleeping at night has been okay, could be a little cooler, but not the HOT that we sometimes experience.

Everyone have a good weekend

Deb in MI
