Hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend!
Quinebaug River Trail
I wasn't quite up to bike riding because my lower back was ouchie so yesterday I opted for walking the path here in town instead while *he* biked. I've never actually walked it before and it was nice - but took longer than I thought it would, clocking in at 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete it. (My Fitbit recorded it as 4.5 miles but I think that's wrong. It's closer to 3.5 miles according to GPS on my phone. /shrug.) I just wanted to get out and enjoy the PHENOMENAL weather while it lasts as it's supposed to be quite a bit warmer later this week. You really couldn't have asked for a better weekend, weather wise. :)
Ooooooooooo!!! MUST HAVE this new CCN pattern the SECOND it's available at my usual internet seller(s). Hives and bees? YOU WILL BE MINE. It's like it was created specifically with me in mind. :)
Our actual hives were in a bit of crisis mode this week as they BOTH were found to be missing queens for some reason. (!!!) One of the hives swarmed a couple weeks ago, which sometimes results in the loss of a missing queen but no clue as to what happened to the second hive's queen. It's a mystery and, per usual, the bees aren't talking. (Tight-lipped as always, they are!!) Above are the two 'emergency' queens had by a local bee keeper in the husband's Guild. So hopefully that puts everything back to rights. The workers from both sides will chew through the wax plug holding her in her cage in a few days time, at which point they will have forgotten she's an intruder and *should* accept her into the fold like nothing happened. High Drama in the Bee World going on over here. lol
Some yarny goodness from the Cookie A sock club.
OMG how is it time for another sock club package already?? I'm still working on the one from February and I can't even tell you where the APRIL package is located in this house! I pulled the February ones out this weekend to work on but they are slower than molasses with all the cabling. (I like doing cables but you CAN NOT rush them!)
Side note: this yarn is the exact color of my senior prom dress. And shoes. And purse. Oy. (That's how it was DONE in 1989, okay? MATCHY MATCHY.)
