Morning Meandering…. Giveaway and My First (and second!) Bee Sting
Good morning. Friday! SWEET!!!! Except my head is full of….
I should clean my kitchen, clean out the fridge, make apple butter with the apples on the trees, take a bike ride, change out the window for banned books week at the library, make a few phone calls, laundry, pick up supplies to make apple butter… look for my moms supplies, mow my lawn…..
Anyhoo… for now, I am chatting with you. And having coffee. And listening to a book. I have most of the weekend for all of the above.
First up today – the giveaway. I posted yesterday about the book (and the movie!) This Is Where I Leave You. I thought I posted too late to be a part of the awesome giveaway going on but found out this morning that I am not too late…. so please comment on that post to be included in the giveaway. I will choose a random winner on Tuesday morning to win this package:
One (1) winner from Book Journey will win a prize pack including:
$25 Visa gift card to see the film in theaters & copy of the book (movie tie-in cover)
OOH! But remember – comment on that post. to be entered, not this one.
Ok next up the bee sting. I have been helping my friend Amanda off and on through the past few years with her bee business. I have been around more lately as she has a lot going on planning to move the bees to Florida for the winter. I have prided myself on the fact that I had never been stung… in fact I often thought it was due to my sesame oil skin softener which as a bonus seems to repel bugs like flies, mosquito’s, etc…
and this is a bit embarrassing…
We were in the truck driving away from a bee yard and I was talking about how the days I knew I would be in the bee yards I would even put the softener on my neck… at that moment I was stung in the throat. Yes – right front and center of my neck and it HURT!
Then… at the next stop, somehow one got into my bee suit and stung me in the eye brow area of my left eye. Seriously….. OW!
An then…I was done being nice to the bees for the day. I am generally a pretty level person who loves to live in the “Can’t we all just get along?” world. Until… we can’t all live in the get along world because someone or something stings me twice and then…
no longer yesterday was I that person that said “Don’t kill it! Roll down your window and let it out!” Nope. I think I smashed 5 bees yesterday for being in the truck and a potential threat to me. I am not proud… but like in any war…
there are casualties.
Ok… I am off to work on that above list. I think what sounds most interesting right now is picking out books for the banned book week display. Always a good time. Oh and don’t forget if you want to participate this year in the fun of Banned Book Week (September 21-27) please sign up! There will be prizes!!!
