I Will Survive


Did you ever wake up one morning thinking everything is going to be relaxing and then come to the sudden realization--"Wait, I'm doing ALL of that? This week? Eeep!"

I'm not sure how I'm going to make it, but by this time one week from today I will be marveling at all I accomplished. Right now, I'm wondering how I'm going to do it. First up, I have a lunch meeting/presentation with the Office of Tourism tomorrow in New Ulm which is about two hours away. Sometime tomorrow, my supplier (B & B Honey Farm--who does not have a website) is getting our honey bees over in Houston, MN and I will pick those up on Tuesday, drive them to Mr. Neil's, make them some nectar and pollen patties, hive them, wait twenty-four hours to make sure they accept the hives on Wednesday. Thursday, we fly out to Cleveland, OH for the North Coast Nature Festival, Friday morning we do some tv appearances (at 5am), do some final rehearsing for Play on Birds, Saturday I lead walks, give presentations, and that night we do Play on Birds. Sunday is a little more of the same only minus the Play on Birds. Both Non Birding Bill's family and my family will be there. Also, during all of this, I need to work on a deadline looming for MN Audubon.

Please, please, Forces of Nature, do not let me get any disfiguring stings this week before we go on stage or tv!

Incidentally, any readers who are planning on coming to see Play on Birds in Ohio, you will need to get there early, the seating is first come/first serve. There's no ticket fee and space maybe limited. This will be a rare chance to see Non Birding Bill. It really is a funny show and is one of my favorite things to perform, I love, LOVE performing with NBB.

I have to give a big thank you to the Wild Birds Unlimited in Cleveland, they are loaning us some of their feeders to use during our Four Stages of Squirrel sketch--I'm so relieved we don't have to take those props with us on the plane.

So, off to do some rehearsing and for some relaxation, I present a video of Cinnamon's nose. We went to the park for the first time since last fall and boy was her nose wigglin' taking in all the scents! The video is about a minute long:
