All your hard work is paying off @addy1 oh and of course the bees get some credit also :joyful:
They get a lot of credit, the comb has to be perfect, the chunk honey no pollen, the liquid honey low moisture all done by them. The creamed is my doing, but again they make the honey I use to make the creamed.

Yep but you feed them the superfood and have all the right bee plants for them to suck up and you doctor their needs and fix them up when they have issues. It takes a team! How come this guy gets 1st place for that one kind. Wonder what he does to it? Maybe he slips in a bit of Vermouth,lol!

He has been entering for years, the bottle has to be perfect, not one bit of smudge, no bubbles in the honey, the right moisture content, the right taste, perfect filling level. I have won a few times he has been second we bounce back and forth. He tends to win more than me.

Finally had to have my wedding ring cut off, finger hurting from how tight it had gotten, darn arthritis. It has been hurting all day as the tissue expands again.
Dear hubby is working with the jeweler to design a new one using my diamond. A real nice family run jeweler been in business been around since 1979.
They say there is a new band that is made to expand to get over the enlarged knuckle then lock shut. So we are getting that ow I have no clue what he is planning.
We went to pick up my hubby designed ring, he sure surprised me. Even didn't let me see it as he put it back on my finger. I was floored, shocked surprise and thrilled.....................guess he loves me!
My wedding diamond is on the right nearest to the heart.

Moved the aquarium from the bedroom to the living room where my grow out tank was. Painted the back and one side of it, added all the baby guppies I could catch, I’ve got lots of males! Added some decorations and hair algae for the pleco, need to add more water, and finish getting filtration set up so it won’t catch baby guppies. Also need it to not be noisy!
Just had to clean puppy ears, they’re getting gunk and ticks, got their dad too! He was the hardest to get, a big brute, had to have hubby hold him. But they all have clean ears! Dogs are fenced in, we have one spot to fix where beefy momma dog found a loose spot to push out.

Oh forgot to mention, it’s rainy. Again. County finally came out and sorta fixed the road, then it rained nice and long, dad got called out, got stuck twice, once in the driveway, once just a few hundred feet down the road, for that one, we had to go around the block down by where half the road fell away into the creek, slinging mud and fish tailing most of the way. That was fun! Kinda scary, but fun

Pics of the aquarium set up and fish. I’ve got probably 30 guppy babies, and I have more outside I didn’t catch. Largely males, it’ll be pretty once they grow up! I’ve got duckweed stuck to the glass, and trapped under and behind the pool floaty bits I have set up to silence the filter.

I painted it with green looking like grass along the bottom, then swirls of rose gold and old copper, covered in blue with a hint of silver.

The last day of my 4 days off. Waiting to see if the system moving north will dump rain on us. I stayed up way too late listening to an audio book, slept in, need to go deep clean the kitchen, do laundry, and a few other things.

Sure seems like you get an awful lot of rain there in Oklahoma. I thought it was more of a dry state in the
Summer. Is it usually this wet? @JamieB
