Day 9 - Bad Weather Returns

Weight 183

"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much."

The cold, windy and rainy weather came back with a vengeance today.  I was starting to think we would have a pleasant April but remembering back to prior Survivor Diets, today's weather is what I was faced with in the first few weeks.

I had my first softball game of the season this morning and it was cold and miserable.  I had to stand out in the wind and mild rain for a couple hours and afterwards I had a hard time getting my core temperature back to normal.  A hot bath did the trick.

Not much on the Survivor front today.  I cooked a big dinner (chicken Fajitos) for the family and I ate my trout candy with rice and water.  I picked on the smoked trout throughout the day and I think I may have had a little more than I should have.  I need to ration it wisely now because this nasty weather looks like it will stick around for a few more days making it impossible to do any outdoor activities.

I got my new package of bees yesterday and all I did was put the box of bees into the hive without releasing them.  I knew the weather was going to be nasty for a few days so I'm hoping they will be safer inside the hive all bundled up in a tight bee ball.  I plan to suit up in my beekeepers outfit and release them as soon as possible.  Hopefully they will be ok until then.
