Spring New Beltane Moon
Kate has taken her still healing cellulitis off to Colorado for a weekend with the grandkids. Gabe’s fourth birthday is tomorrow. Her arm looks much better than it did on Monday, swelling much less pronounced and the area of red, heated skin has reduced considerably. It took four doses of IV antibiotics and the follow-up oral meds to get this infection under control. No fun at all.

Meanwhile back at the apiary, I’m going to check the bees tomorrow for larvae, need for syrup and pollen patties. A few garden chores tomorrow, too, notably digging up the potato patch and amending the soil. I can’t plant potatoes in the main vegetable garden for a couple more years because the beetles found them last fall. Too many to pick off and drown in soapy water.
Also, I really need to fix the tire on the Celica, get it started and get the tire repaired or buy a new one. Then, I’m going to give it away one way or another. Know anyone that needs a car? I may have a taker, but I’m not sure. If not, I’ll pass it on to someone for free. It has 280,000 miles on it, but it runs well. We’ve decided to go with one car for financial reasons and it’s the one with the most mileage, so it has to go.
