The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

First of all, I apologise for the really poor photo quality. I still don't know how to use my new camera, really. I'm always accidently hitting mystery buttons and don't know how to fix things.
This one was for an alphabet handmade postcard swap.
This one was for a one-on-one postcard tag swap.
The top one is for the next installment of the alphabet handmade postcard swap. The ones on the bottom are for a Sharpie postcard swap.
This last one, is one that Shabree was working on. It may be too dark to see, but I'll take a better (I hope!) photo tomorrow.

I didn't take many photos since I was so tired and also because I forgot to put the memory card in the camera. I had to just rely on the internal memory, which only extended to 21 photos. My photos did not turn out very well at all. The light was all wonky apparently, and I did nothing to adjust for it.
This is the wedding party. Andrew and Samantha are in the middle front. Our son, Garrett, with his dreadlocks tied back, is on the top left, with granddaughter, Shabree next to him, and son, Reagan, next to her. They had a photographer and several volunteers taking photos, so I wasn't really keeping up with photographing everything.
Here is Shabree with the wreath I made for the head table. The colors washed out terribly in the photo. It was really very vibrant.
This is my lovely daughter-in-law, Samantha, in her grandmother's pearls, talking to my Aunt Ruth.
The bride and groom's first dance was to Percy Sledge's, When A Man Loves A Woman.

I really feel bad about not blogging very often this summer. There won't even be a photo with this entry, unless I add one later. Besides have so much going on, I think my troubles started when my old camera broke, and I got a new one. Nothing is simple any more. After getting the new camera, I had to install the software to the computer, and read the manual, and hope some of it sank in. This broke my stride...what little stride I had. Since then, I just cannot remember to take photos! I have sent off at least 22 pieces of art work in recent days, without even a photo to remember them by. :/ There have been several different happenings, of late, that I should have taken photos of, but just didn't even think of it until afterwards.

Let's see...

Our youngest son is getting married on Saturday, and there is still so much to finish up for that.

Also, we are moving, probably in about a month. Our house needs work, badly, and since Stewart just bought a piece of property that joins his land to ours, on the edge of town, we will be moving into that house. It is tiny, and there is no way all our stuff will fit, so it will be here and there. And before we move in, the carpeting will need to come up and new flooring put down. The new place does come with two nice little one room buildings on the property, though, so one will be my studio. I am really happy about that. But I am going to miss my much, much messier but more interesting yard.

Religious Education classes start for the school year in our parish again very soon. I have moved the date back farther than usual, until the Sunday after Labor Day, but's very close. Parent letters need to go out now, and I haven't even typed them yet. We still lack confirmation on one teacher, and if she declines, I'll probably be teaching that class as well as directing the program.

So that's what's on my mind at the moment.
