It started with one of Polly’s eggs exploding in her nest and ruining the whole clutch. 😦
Then this afternoon I went out and all my bees are swarming! I tried to capture the swarm into another hive body that I have, but have no way of knowing if I got the queen or not. 😦
And just a while ago our realtor called and told us that someone else has bid on the property we found. The owner has told him that he wants cash, so now the other bidder has to talk to his wife and see what she says.
I really hope she says:
So now we shall wait to see if God says yes.
WARNING: for the easily grossed out, please read no further!
It seems that my day was not over yet, because the bad eggs I had pulled out earlier and put into a box to throw away, I promptly forgot about leaving them on the back steps. . .
Tucker found the box, dug into it, ate the contents and then barfed them up onto the living room rug. We tried several different applications and used the rug shampooer on it, but it is now hanging on the back fence. I don’t know if the stench will ever come out!
THEN, not to be outdone, Buddy found the remnants of one of the eggs (shells mostly) and he at them. Then for good measure rolled in the remainder. Two hours later he went into the bedroom and barfed on the carpet. Thankfully, the remainders, were not so virulent as the original nasty dead eggs, and therefore we were able to clean the bedroom carpets efficiently.
I have had enough and believe I will be heading off to bed now.
