In A Fit of Activity

I seem to have acquired a full bee setup. *blinks at self* One of the Colorado beekeepers on the list I follow is getting rid of 1000 8-frame deeps (smaller than the standard 10-frame setups but easier to haul around for that) as he's going out of the commercial beekeeping business and going into raising queens and the more specialty work. But most new setups are a few hundred dollars and he's giving me everything I need for a fraction of the cost new. "All" I have to do is clean it up and put workers and a queen into it in next spring. *laughs*

I also delivered seven paintings to one of the biggest and busiest hospitals in town, the Longmont United Hospital and found that the Longmont Artists' Registry actually will administer the sales of the paintings for me, taking a 25% commission, but given that I'm going to be gone for a good deal of the three month show, it's well worth it. The administration lady behind the desk who received the paintings said she thought mine were beautiful and very unlike anything else she'd seen go through their Art Cafe or front walk. Peaceful and open, she said. *grins*

Yesterday, I met folks at a bank wanted paintings. But they wanted stuff that was bigger than mine, so I managed to get my mentor, the art therapist, in on *that* show, so that worked out all right. Today, I also got my allergy shots, ran to deliver things to the library, wrote like mad with DarkPrism, and then played with Jet, rode the bicycle, started throwing things into the "To Pack" pile, and had an excellent dinner with my boys.

A good day, I think. A good day.
