meeting this thurs night! 3-4-10
What a beautiful morning. I went out to kick the furnace on in my workshop this morning so it can warm up for today's project, hive-top feeders. On my way back into the house I heard a strange noise from high above. I looked up into the bright blue sky and beheld 3 beautifully white swans followed by 9 darker colored swans which I'm guessing were cygnets (younger swans) flying northwest. As I stood in the still crisp air I next heard water dripping from the eaves of my barn as the sun began to melt the snow on the roof. Ah, spring is in the air. Yet I'm torn between emotions. I can hardly wait for spring to fully arrive, but am I ready with all my equipment? Is there anything I'm forgetting? Why oh why haven't I already created a checklist to ease my worried mind? I shall endeavor to do so this evening....first thing on my checklist is to create a checklist. How about you? Are you ready for spring and the new beekeeping season?
Maybe we should add that to our agenda Thursday night at this month's meeting. Try making up your own checklist and bring it to the meeting. We can share some ideas and maybe help each other with things we may have overlooked ourselves. We have a lot to cover at this month's meeting; ordering bees, honey bee sex, starting new hives. Wow, I shall have to find a way to be succinct....I hear you laughing.
Finally, I will have pre-registration forms for this month's ANR beekeeping conference. Last year the lines went down the hall of the Kellogg Center. You may save yourself some standing time in a long line by pre-registering.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting. The only dress requirement is that you wear a smile.
