honey bees….lots of  ’em…


this was yesterday at lunch.  only one of my 20 creosote bushes is blossoming already.  scads of bees were working it over.



no dennis…those aren’t mini-tennis balls or a 3 foot bee. that is a creosote bud.

big plans for today!

frolic with the dogs in the morning. done

i actually have a job today!  good thing, too, as rent is due tomorrow and it kills the paycheck. done

then i have to go to the department store to buy some essentials.  the everyday clothes and staples that wear out after time. done…but unsucessful

clean kitchen. done

finish last website i will ever have to do. (hurray!)

rearrange living room furniture.

straighten up back yard. done

make a cd of photos for dog training center.

pack away winter clothes.

take dogs to a new trail.  i’m getting sick of our usual places.

oops, forgot to add these:

take bike to repair shop done

clean off desk

and the biggest, biggest chore…figuring out how to never lose this nano again.  you know where i found it?  in a bag of cody bear’s old meds.   and it is just so small.

ipodi can’t lose this again.

this is cody bear’s most frequently requested trick.  unfortunately, it doesn’t seem too spectacular because i had to film it myself, and without two hands i was just confusing the poor little guy.

but you get the idea:

it usually goes much faster.  plus we usually do it to the mortal kombat song. JUST KIDDING!  but seriously, it does look better when he’s where his gi.  JUST KIDDING AGAIN!  my dog doesn’t have a gi…

that would be weird.

after work today i grabbed the camera and walked out the front door to take some bird shots, but was dive bombed by this guy:

carpenter bee knocking

carpenter bee knocking

he really wanted in, even with the dogs barking at him!

carpenter bee on sedum flower

the carpenter bee would get pissed at my flash and circle me, then head back to the blooms.

soon after buzzy bee girl showed up and we rode our bikes to our friends birthday party.  thank god they had food there, as i had skipped lunch today. by the time we rolled up to our friend’s house i was famished.

buzz3cool plant, eh?

oh….o.k. here’s a random fact: i have an irritating voice.  and you know what?  i don’t care if it’s irritating.

cuz….the dog is cute, and she doesn’t seem to mind:

seriously, i’m feeling SOOOO misanthropic tonight.  in fact….PLEASE . . . DO  NOT LEAVE A COMMENT.  my aggravated self will only scorn you.  (just kidding!  how could anyone be peeved looking at that puppy smile?)

but…to cheer me up…here’s another video of pickles!

cute, eh?  in case you’re new here, that’s my 10 month old border collie, pickles.  she is very lovable, and not at all irritating.

ok…go ahead and leave a comment. i promise not to scorn you.  but i’m still grouchy, damn it!

night night
