Bee hives, anyone?

I don't think I have mentioned this on here before, but we will be buying the lot next door to us.

We close on March 9th.


Just because.

It is exciting and kind of scary.

It will give us a big yard without having to move further away from Noah's work.

Noah thinks he will be able to have bee hives.

I think I will be able to put in a big garden and rasberry bushes.

Deacon is dreaming of a pool and a hockey rink.

We have all agreed on a dirt bike track.

Oh, and eventually a fence.

And maybe a tree house.

Or maybe we are getting carried away. It will only give us a total of .55 acres. But that is double what we have now.

So it is exciting.

But it is scary.

We are pretty cautious with our finances and we don't make decisions to spend money particularily quickly or easily.

And this was no exception.

But I guess if we do decide we need some extra income we can always get the bee hives and then rent out our bees. Or something.

But the thing Deke and I are the most excited about?

Cutting down some trees.

I need a chain saw.

You can't have a chain saw. Capable of too much damage too fast. Let's stick with the pruning sheers and the sheetrock knife. :)

We actually have some bee keeping equipment as it is something Paul wants to get into as well. I'm all for fresh, raw honey, but not the actual management of a hive. At least bees will only improve our landscaping instead of destroying it.

Congrats on your extra land!

I don't think that pruning shears and the sheetrock knife are going to be able to inflict the proper amount of force against those trees.

Do I have to call Kim to come over when you are at work?!?!

I don't care if he has bees, but am fairly certain that I would end up doing most of the managing- something I don't want to do...
