1. Snow, a lot of snow
It didn’t start snowing until sometime last night but now we’ve got a ton. I am trying really hard to be exciting about it but I do love summer so much more than winter. You can see in my before and after shots of our bee yard that snow levels are significant.
2. We wrapped up the bees for winter
We knew that we had to do it before the snow (see #1) so Saturday we finally took the feeders off the hives and wrapped them up. We did basically the same as last year so hopefully it works again. The ladies in Moose Factory were really angry and did not want to get off the top board so it took a little more work to get them wrapped up than Chapleau. Despite the fact that it is November, both hives were bringing in pollen from somewhere.
3. I got my hair cut
I’ve been getting it dry cut and learning to love my natural curl but it has been taking forever to dry in the morning. I chopped off several inches to bring the length up to about my chin on Thursday on sort of a whim. I’ve not sure the last time I had it cut this short but I’ve loving it!
4. I bought myself 3 new pairs of “winter” footwear
Since my foot injury I’ve had to been a lot more careful about what I wear on my feet. I’ve just started to be able to wear things other than running shoes or my barefoot flats but my feet are still sore at the end of the day if I’ve been wearing anything with a heel. Both my brown boots and my black boots are really worn (like the sole is detaching) so I wanted to replace them anyways. All the stars must have been aligned today since I found boots without heels that fit my orthotics and were on sale for 40% off. So, as well as the required black boots, I bought a pair of low, lace-up boots for casual winter wear and a new pair of dress shoes.
