You write like one of my friends talks. Sorta here and there and everywhere. :) You also sound like you have alittle of a life like mine - stray animals, love the critters, do a little crafting - what ever to keep busy and enjoy life. Do you ever take care of wild animals? - baby birds, squirrels, opposom?
You'll do fine with getting over the fear of bees. They'll fasinate you too much probably.
