Swarm

Every year at this time the Queen Bee waves her white handkerchief and starts the annual Swarming.This has been kept a secret until now and I feel this is a good time to tell the story. Queen Bees everywhere are doing the same and the drones swarm to the nearest garden and gather pollen for their Queen. I think it would be fun for a while to be that Queen! Much like when we were children our parents gathered what we needed to survive and happily gave it to us. Guess I'm just getting lazy in my old age and a bit tired of gathering my own goodies that I need to survive. I'm proud of being able to take care of myself in some way. Not in the manner in which I would like to be come accustom to, but doing it in some way. I saw a saying one time that said "I'm tired of looking for the meaning of life, all I want now is a cookie". I agree bring on the cookies, cakes and candies....tee hee....A bit cold here but sunny and that makes my Mother in a good mood. The cats are cuddly and I think miss their solar power they get from the Sun.....My friend is coming down tomorrow and a good time will be had. Sharing our feelings, trying to make sense out of getting older and only a few complaints about how it is harder to get around with the aches and pains of life. It is nice to have a cohort in crime and when our children are tired of listening we can share with each other. A trip to Laguna on Thursday to visit a friend. Life can't get much better. Hope you have a pleasant week ahead of you and if you are still and look very hard to might just see the Queen waving the bees on!
