New Year, old news

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. We got hit with crud over the holidays, and I haven't felt like doing much apart from the day to day getting by.  Poor Junebug spent his first Christmas sick and feverish and even went to the clinic on Christmas Day. He had either a throat infection or pharyngitis. I got some bit of it on Christmas and was so achy and wiped out that I was in bed by 7:30.  Sprout had lots of bronchial ick going on, and J got periodic bouts of sorethroat and headache but came through mostly unscathed.

Everyone is on the mend now, so we are planning a trip to Wadi el Hitan again (Valley of the Whales) with some friends. It will be much colder than during our last visit, but we are hoping it won't be as windy so that we can spend a bit longer exploring.

I don't have it in me to do a recap of the last year, but this year, I (and J) am striving to learn as much as I can about homesteading, growing a forest garden, and beekeeing. We are also working on being more self-disciplined in how we spend our time, i.e. lots of dreaming but even more doing.

And speaking of do, I have much to take care of before our trip (we'll be gone three days).

Blessed New Year to you all.



Thanks for all the sweet comments on Junebug and his ornament.

I love that it's called the Valley of Whales.

And beekeeping = love. I've daydreamed about beekeeping. I hope you guys get to actually *do* it.

Glad you're on the mend now. Stay well.

Yeah, we aren't going after all. :( Going to make a brief post about it, but there is a replacement plan in the works.

I can't wait to get bees! I will strive to give you regular doses of vicarious beekeeping when the day (year) arrives. :P

Aww man! I'm sorry you're not going. But if it's because you're all still too under the weather, I'm glad you're postponing. You need to rest.

And I'm looking forward to my vicarious beekeeping experience :-)

Dumb question. Do you work with the dangerous Africanized bees or European bees?

So sorry to hear that you've all been sick. I hope you're all well for your trip.

When I was growing up, we had a neighbor who kept bees. It was fascinating.
