We spent last weekend doing a little ice fishing, making a little beer, and working on the business!  Great weekend, even better friends, and even more fun!  We caught 4 bass and 2 perch!  Well, 'they caught' is more appropriate.  My niece Hunter and I watched, complained about cold toes and went to get more coffee and snacks :)  It was a great time and I would do it again, but with electric socks and a bigger mug!  The rest of the week we spent making connections, finding vendors, sending out applications, ordering materials, building shelving, cleaning pots, making paper bricks, and learning more about keeping bees!  We have been busy and we are both exhausted, but so happy to do it.  We sleep soundly in our exhaustion with smiles on our faces :)  This weekend we are having dinner at my parent's house with a few families who run thier own farms and we are so thrilled to be able to meet them and learn more about what we are getting into and how we can help our local farmers!  We will plant some seeds, set some lights, dampen some torn newspaper for next weeks bricks, bake and clean food for the week, and maybe, just maybe John will have a few minutes of football!  Another wonderful event is having my aunts and uncles down from NH and up from NJ at my parents house Saturday afternoon.  There is nothing more important than family and friends!  I'm hoping to soon have pictures to post of our 2 new additions to the family - Willow and Violet - they are 2 female angora bunnies that will be born this month.  I also will be posting pics of Jeff and I attempting to make our bee homes for our two colonies coming on April 27th.  The beekeeping classes are going great and I highly recommend them to anyone thinking of raising bees.  There are so many things you can't learn from a book and it is wonderful to also meet so many people with similar interests.  Well, that's all for now, time to cuddle in front of a movie and get some Z's for the weekend ahead!  Be well!
