A SINK WITH A VIEW

Recently, I was over at Leigh's lovely and inspiring blog "5 Acres and a Dream". She and I installed our bees at the same time and she's a new beekeeper like me.  I was reading about her experiences and she mentioned that their bee garden could be seen from their kitchen window.  

That got us to thinking...what can we see from our kitchen window?
Farmhouse kitchen window view
We were excited to realize that we can see the bee yard from the kitchen window too!  We've always liked that we could see the garden from with window (and this is also looking out onto the front porch) but now we can add the bee yard to that view as well.  Yay!


Our plans were to be off to the farm today but this is the sky in town this morning when we got up, and below is the radar image at the farm.


Ugh.  2nd Family has already let us know that there has been a lot of bad weather out there and more coming...we're always anxious to make sure everything is OK at the farm in big storms when we aren't there and thankfully we have them to check on things for us.  As soon as it calms down, "J" is going to check on the hives.  They should be pretty stable but we still worry.

Looks like no zen machine time or yard work today either, sigh.

Update later!

We've had rain last night and are expecting more this afternoon as well. Not crazy about a rainy day again, but as long as we don't have severe weather, I'll be ok with that.

We live in an area that gets those crazy storms too and we had one this morning, high winds, hail, lightning, etc. Stay safe, hope all is well at your farm!

It must be hard to have property and not be there all the time to watch over it. Lucky for you to have number two's family close by.

It rained last night for the big Junior Senior Prom. They still had a good time, I think.

Beautiful view.

You do have a very nice view from your kitchen window. And when you get the bee garden planted, it will be even prettier.
At least with the rain this morning, I didn't have to water my vegetable garden!

1st Man,

Great view!!! I hope all is okay at the farm after the severe weather rolled through. Be careful!

1st Man said...

The rainy days just put a downer on everything don't they? Ha. Stay dry!

1st Man said...

Thank you!! You too!

1st Man said...

I know, and yes, we are so grateful they live there to check on things for us.

Hey there sweet lady! It's not going...we've gotten so behind on getting it ready we have to make the touch decisions. I will have a post about that tomorrow as a matter of fact.

1st Man said...

Yay for you, that will be so neat. It's so nice to look out a window if you have to stand there and do something like washing dishes, ha. Thank you for the sweet words, always!!

1st Man said...
