Long Sunday.

I was full of intentions. I made lasagna yesterday and I was stoked to go out and see Gen and her family for a couple of hours, and bring them some lasagna. Plus, it was the first day of the summer Kits farmer’s market, so I wanted to go and bring them something from there.

And then the pinkeye came back. So today I have been dosing myself with the pinkeye goo from the doctor at the walk-in clinic (whom I saw to get a refill on my inhaler a couple of weeks ago, and I hope he doesn’t think I am stalking him, because he is movie-star handsome) and waiting for the pinkeye to subside.

The goo makes my eyes sticky, and I can’t see so well,  so I have been mostly mooching around the house today. I mulched (put down more cardboard), did some laundry, prepped for the week. But I am pissed off at the stupid pinkeye. It’s been a long day.

On the plus side, my landlord says we can get a little bee house for the backyard! I would totally love to increase the local bee population. I just have to do a ton of research, because I want the bees, but not the work. Or the stings.

You know it’s been a long day when you can’t wait for the next day to begin, even if it is a Monday.

Happy end-of-the-week to you all.

    The little bee box they have here looks like it was just nailed to a post and left the heck alone, so I think it’s probably not a lot of work. Seems like you’re just providing habitat, not actually standing around with one of those smoker boxes and the Outbreak hood.

    Though you’d rock that, I bet.

    I totally would rock that, and if my enthusiasms get the better of me, I might go that way. You’ve got the Mason Bees as well? They look pretty easy.

    But bumblebees sound kind of cool as well, and also easy.

    There was a bee drowning in my pool and I rescued it. I hope it goes and tells the other bees not to sting me. Bees are endangered now anyway, right?

    I don’t think we have any bees living in our alley yet.

    CURSES AND FIE ON THE PINKEYE! Pinkeye is my nemesis.

    Stephanie, bees are social creatures. I’m sure they know not to sting you. And I don’t know if they’re endangered, but stupid human pollution shit does have them declining.
    Arwen, I fricking hate pinkeye.

    I love bumblebees. I love the word bumblebee.

    I TOO HATE YOUR PINKEYE. Hope you are all swickity doo by now.
