For those who celebrate it – happy new year tomorrow! May all your days be healthy and full of joy


Music adds so much joy to our lives. So does exercise and good health. And until one’s life is devoid of all of those – we do not really appreciate our senses that let us hear, see, understand and move with joy and no pain.

So today I am giving thanks for all the goodness in my life – the family, friends, good health and prosperity – and ask that you take a few moments to express an attitude of gratitude. We always have something to be grateful for, no matter how dark the moment. And in this blog I send you strength and joy for every moment of your day.

Below is some of the bounty of our little farm – apricots and the jam that I have made from them – just Apricots ( pitted), sugar and vegetarian pectin. Cook slowly and enjoy. My absolute favorite jam.

Apricot Jam plus fresh fruitAnd of course – apples and honey from our bees – a traditional dish. Happy New Year to those who celebrate it tomorrow! Here I am in my bee suit  – but honestly, I leave the bee keeping to my husband – he is a real expert – and we are working hard to preserve as many bee colonies as we can – they are suffering from the Colony Collapse Syndrome that bees worldwide are afflicted with. We lost half our hives this year – and are tending to the remaining ones hoping that they will survive. More on that in another blog….Larraine Beekeeper Feb 2011
