After Tad's nap we had a lunch of homemade vegetable soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. (Well, Tad didn't eat that, we did!) After they left, Rick and I spent the afternoon trimming the fruit trees. It needs to be done in late winter before the trees start to bud.
As I was putting a dish of lasagna in the oven, some friends stopped by with a plate of chocolates they had made. Aren't they pretty? Yummo!
In between all this, I got some hand quilting done and talked to our other 2 sons on the phone. Have to hear from them at least once a week or this mom gets anxious:)
The only bad part of the day was finding out the bees had died. These days it's not unusual, but we were sad. The guys cleaned out the hive and collected the honeycomb.
Andrew took two big pans of comb home to render the honey.
And look at this comb without honey. It is so pretty and you can really see how perfect the hexagons are. I'm going to be making some lip balm with this.
Now Rick is watching the game. I'm watching the commercials and quilting. Yes, I'd say it was a good day!
