Today has been good. I woke up at 7:30 to Gill singing the song I usually sing to her when I'm waking her up for school. I rolled over, grumbled something about cereal, and then smiled to myself as she cheerfully walked back out, poured herself some breakfast, and watched cartoons. Sweet Jeebus, this is a good age.

We took my grandmother out for drinks and hors d'oeuvres today ("we" being Mom, Amy, and I) at Jonathan Pasco's. It was great, given that I haven't spent any quality time with my grandma in way too long. She's funny and bright and strong-willed, and it's always a pleasure seeing her. Come to find out, she made Amy and I come Chex Mix. This is a Big Deal, to be explained some other time.

I'm painting boxes right now, in lieu of going to game. My folks were going to watch Gill tonight and tomorrow, and forgot that they had a Jack and Jill to go to. So, I'm home, and I'm making good use of my time. I added a deep and a shallow super to the more active hive, but couldn't find my smoker or my gloves, so I didn't bother pulling frames to the top (that would have led to a lot of activity and aggravation with my poor bees, and I opted for the slower, but safer, route.) They'll fill the supers a little slower to start with, because they don't smell like the rest of the hive yet, but that's OK.
I still need to get into the hive at some point and check for Queen Cells. I don't need to lose half of my hive to swarming, thanks anyway.
