Come Back Tomorrow

Sorry, I don't have anything today. It might be because I got to sleep through the night for the first time in two months! So this is what (mostly) well rested feels like. Ahhh. Not to worry, Sophie has turned into the nightmare version of my child, so I'll be back later with tales of her misadventures.

I'll leave you with a photo I snapped the other day while Sophie and I were out enjoying the weather. It took me about 20 pictures to get one that showed this beauty clearly. It's hardly fit for National Geographic, but this amateur is pretty happy with it. This giant bumblebee has taken up residence at the corner of our house. It just hovers in this spot all day. Staring at the wall.

Maybe she has a baby bee back at the hive that doesn't sleep through the night.

  2. At least you're able to store up enough energy to sorta-maybe-kinda keep up with her all day!

  6. If I were a bumble bee who had a baby bee who never slept, I'd hover and stare at the wall too =)

    But since I'm not, if I saw a bee hovering and staring at a wall, I'd scream and run. So you get points for bravery for whipping out your camera!

  8. Wow! Big Bee!
    I thought it was a humming bird at first glance.
    Hope this is just the beginning of many sleep filled nights for you!

  10. Sleep through the night? Feels like I have more of a chance to get stung by a bee than do that any time soon.

    Glad you got some zzzzz . . .

  12. Okay, my Hubby walked by my computer and stopped dead in his tracks! He was like, "WOH! Great picture!!"

    He should know--he works with bumblebees!!

    So hoooooray for your awesome catch!

    Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I nearly peed my pants when I read your comment on Lula's blog and have meant to come visit.

    I have the feeling we could be good friends! " )

  16. Yay for sleep! And that is a great shot of the bee. I have bees that look similar - but they are carpenter bees. Just be careful because they eat wood. I have the exterminator coming to rid my house of the slew of them that keep me from enjoying the outdoors!
