AHHHhh Honey, Honey....


12 pounds of honey really isn't that much. Right? Okay maybe it is, but I... I like honey. Not in a really really like honey type of way, but I like it. I like how on a peanut butter and honey sandwich it makes the bread kind of crusty. But that’s really the only time I use honey. But what I really really like is the idea of honey. I want to be a bee keeper. Not in a someday kind of way, but in a, if the class was on any other night other than Tuesday nights I would be in the class right now. I have it all planned out. The bees come in a box in the mail. :) That sounds fun!! I will put them on the mountain during the summer and out at the pastures during the winter. And bam, I'm a bee keeper.
I don't think I came to this idea all on my own. I think it is in my blood somewhere. I know of at least one ancestor who was a bee keeper, and on their way along the Hole in the Rock trail the wagon tipped over and the bees went everywhere. They had to wait a day for the bees to come back to the hive at night before they could move on. My Uncle Joe has or had bees, and I know my dad wanted to be a bee keeper until he got stung and quickly found out he was allergic.
So it is my blood. It is meant to be. I will be a bee keeper. All you unbelievers just wait. Someday you just might want my honey.

If you ever do it, tell James. He thinks that he would make an amazing bee keeper. If it weren't for the fact that we live in townhomes, we'd probably have a hive right now. You may become his new BFF if you keep bees.

PS-Uncle Joe told James he never really got enough honey to make worth anything, BUT I've met commercial bee keepers and they made BANK. (Not that money is the reason to keep bees, just sayin')

We eat a TON of honey. We go through it like nobodies business. We'd be your #1 costumer.

Yikes!! I HATE getting stung, and that's all I can ever think about whenever I see a bee. But good luck to you! :)
