I hope this is the "in like a lion" part of March. I also hope it gets up to 60 by the end of the week like they are saying it will. I really want to do some outdoor planting next week during "spring break". The SB will be home late Friday night. I have limited sitting obligations and I am looking forward to getting lots done. Which means that the snow needs to go ahead and melt. "Nice to see you, don't let the door hit you in the fanny on the way out" if you know what I mean....

Later this week I go to the Beekeepers meeting. I don't go to them often, but this is the beginning of the season, and I am hoping to find someone to share a trip to Culpepper to pick up some bees. I am happy to scam a car, but it would be nice to drive up there for more than just my own 3# package of bees - and avoid having anyone else have to drive up there as well... That would just be silly. I am looking forward to having the critters back in residence. I need to get my butt in gear and do some bee work to get set up. I think I am in pretty good shape, but I need to take the hive apart and clean it out. Also, to level the area where the bee hive is. It drives the SB kinda crazy that the hive is leaning a wee bit to starboard.

I also want to go explore the sheds at my Papa's farm and see what kind of fencing might be around. No sense in buying anything that might already be around looking to be useful.

Also, while he is home I must decide what to do about the vehicle. Well, I don't REALLY need to decide, but I hate hanging around with indecision. Nothing but bad company there.

No summer veggies seeds up as of this afternoon. It has been three whole days. If they aren't up by Friday I am going in after them.

if the SB isn't up for the farm adventure, I may be able to come with if you want some company . .
