Day 21 - Busy Busy Bees

This morning I didn't have to go into work until 10 am.  My plan was to release the bees into their new home today - very excited about that.  Rather than explaining too much about it, I made a video of the process.  All in all it went pretty smoothly but the one (very important) thing that I am not 100% sure about is whether the queen bee survived the trip.  The queen comes in a little cage but within this cage were about 6 bees that all looked the same and possibly one dead one.  I placed this cage into the hive and I will give it about a week before I check it again.  There is a nice little viewing window in the side of the hive so I may be able to spy on them as they work and see if, in fact, the queen is alive.  I also made a bee feeder for them until they start to collect their own food.

I was a little late for work today.  Had a nice piece of fluke for lunch and dinner.  I have been off of rice for a few days in order to save and ration a little better.  So far so good.
