Winter Is Coming Says Hallmark

Hallmark Original Christmas movies have a strange affect on me. I get all excited about watching Christmas in July Hallmark Original movies, but after a few, I get a real strong sense that winter is coming and I must prepare for Christmas. Christmas is half a year away!! I have time. No I don’t!! You see that? I start arguing with myself. Yesterday I had a strong sense that I needed to clear out the attic in order to prepare for Christmas. Not sure what the connection is, but I couldn’t fight it. So there I was for four hours in a 10,0000 degree attic, sorting through boxes and chucking things out the entrance that I didn’t need anymore. It was so hot up there that I am certain I lost ten pounds. So now my attic is clean and organized and I can enjoy ten minutes of peace in my head. I’m torn. I really want to watch another Hallmark Original Movie, but I don’t think I can take another cleaning marathon like yesterday. I know where I would go next. My baby bassets rooms. My poor baby bassets.

The day his wife died, Sheriff Cash Hill discovered she was leaving him for another man, one she’d loved since before their marriage. How could the single dad ever trust another woman again?

Start your Silvan adventure today with Path of a Novice, by award-winning author R.K. Lander.

An immortal half-blood becomes a novice warrior and joins the ranks of the Silvans as they battle Sand Lords and Deviants. He only ever had one dream; to become a Silvan captain in an army commanded by the dominant Alpine elves, colonizers of the Great Forest. There had once been another dream though – to know who his father was, but years of unanswered questions later, he told himself it didn’t matter anymore.

Meanwhile, the powerful Alpine lords weave a story of racial superiority, relegating the native Silvans to second-class subjects. Village leaders, Spirit Warriors and Foresters are starting to rebel.

Fel’annár learns the true meaning of warrior hood when he travels as the only novice warrior in a multi-racial patrol into the Deep Forest. As he battles the enemy for the first time, a power unfolds, one he cannot control – does not want. While friendships are forged, a destiny begins to unravel, one that is tied to a past he knows nothing about. For others though, it is only a matter of time before the truth is revealed and the danger becomes real.

Can Fel’annár overcome his fears, become the warrior he always wanted to be, or will his dreams be stunted by his own shrouded past? By one elf’s lust for absolute power?

Time Time, Is It Time

I wonder if bees can tell time. I am sure they must have a sense of time since they put themselves to bed every night. Okay, maybe that was a dumb question. They are creatures that have a very real sense of time because they prepare for the winter and that preparedness means the survival of the whole colony. My poor sweet bees are working their fuzzy bee butts off getting ready for winter and I am over here harassing them every other day moving them to their new spot. Thankfully the last move was a few nights ago. No more moves!! YAY!!! I gave them sugar water this morning to give them an extra little pep in their step. A few weeks ago I was talking to a local bee expert about what my next steps were going to be. One of the things she had mentioned was I might want to think about feeding my bees, since the pollen count was going to be going down and they might need a little boost. She also mentioned I should reduce the entrance to help the guard bee fight off any bees that are not part of the colony and might try to rob my sweet bees. This is when I start getting very anxious. It’s been two weeks, so am I supposed to feed them now? I checked the local pollen count and it’s low, so it seems to be a good time to feed them. Can I add another level to their beebox? OH MY GOSH!! I feel like a newby again now that I have my own box in my yard. I didn’t realize how much I depended on my partner in crime.

Words So Fast

Today I saw something I had never seen before. A humming bird taking a bath in the little fountain in the back section of my garden. First he was taking little sips of water and humming back and forth from a branch in the tree, then back to the fountain for a few more sips. He returned repeatedly testing out the water and going deeper and deeper into the spray of the fountain. I wonder if he was just getting used to the temperature since it was a bit cold. For a good five minutes I was mesmerized by the little fella. I almost forgot about what a jerk he is, and that he is the reason I no longer have birds in my yard. For a brief moment I did not dwell on the fact that he likes my garden so much that he chases away, with an intense ferocity, anyone who tries to enter. He has even threatened me a few times. I was sure he was going to poke my eye out that time I was trying to prop up a few fallen gladiolas. I imagine he has a bit of a foul mouth on him. He didn’t learn those words from me!
