We're kind of at a stand still at the moment. We are waiting to be matched. Currently, I'm okay with this stand still.
It is late August. My favorite time of year - the Minnesota State Fair. It's also the time of year to extract honey.
OH yeah, along with my introduction post, I should have told you a little more about myself. I have 2 hobbies. I am a beekeeper in the summer and very recently, I've turned my other hobby (baking) into a business. I won't get too in depth, but I love them both.
Beekeeping: I first started out when my dad's friend told me he has been keeping bees for many years. I thought, "hmm, sounds fun... I've never tried that. I probably should." I'm in my fourth year now and am completely hooked. I love it all - even my battle wounds. Up until this year, I have had a mentor. He's still around, when needed. I think I'm doing OK... there are a lot of bees and honey!
Baking: My true love. It relaxes me. I enjoy trying new recipes. I like hearing people say how delicious it all tastes. Do I like it as a job? Not so sure yet. I feel anxious when someone pays me for something I made. I worry whether or not they will like it. I worry whether or not I will get an angry call or email. I'm fragile in that aspect.
Along with my hobbies, I have a full-time job, my husband and I raise two kids and a dog, and our house is always under construction (currently the kitchen).
I'd love to be matched with a couple soon. But for now, I am OK with this stand still.
