Less than a week till the half and I somehow managed to hurt my ankle yesterday and can’t put any weight on it. Awesome.
My queen is alive and laying eggs like crazy! I was too excited and didn’t get any pictures, but she has filled two and a half frames with baby bees. I was able to see them at every stage (teeny egg, larva, and capped with wax getting ready to emerge). I’m getting so much more comfortable handling the bees and it makes me feel like a beekeeping badass when I notice things in the hive and label them correctly.
Working on a Saturday isn’t ideal, but I like how quiet it is. Also, I found this circa 2006 sweatshirt in the depths of my closet last week and have been living it is since.
Why Congress Should Care About the Beepocalypse
This year, food security is set to suffer another big setback, and the culprit could not be cuter: honeybees. Last winter, America’s beekeeping industry lost nearly half of all its bee colonies. And the numbers keep falling. Last summer, in the largest bee kill on record, more than 50,000 bumblebees were killed in Oregon as a direct result of exposure to an insecticide applied to trees for cosmetic purposes.
I measure my morning success by if I am able to put on pants without rolling my KT tape. This morning was very successful.

I feel bad for snapchat friends. They have probably gotten 50 Benji snaps since Friday.

I got my first bee sting today. I went to help another bee keeper look through his hives, and one got me in the leg while I was standing there waiting to be handed a frame. The spot is about the size of a quarter, so not bad. I’m off to get myself a pair of boyfriend jeans, in the name of beekeeping.
