Honey and the Sweet Little Fiends

I spent the morning helping to harvest honey from the poor dear departed Kitty Hive. This is the one that swarmed this summer, Kitty ( much like her on-the-go namesake, ) took OFF, and took half the colony with her. Where? Who can say...We re-Queened the hive, but alas, they could not keep warm and all died, leaving their honey behind them.

For US to strain out of the comb and jar up! Sticky business that. But fun, I say. I felt like Winnie the Pooh with all of his Honey Pots. Or some sort of grave robber, stealing honey from Dead Bees....I like that. Honey from the Dead.

Yesterday, when I did not arise from my bed in good enough time, to make Venus and Mim's breakfast, they got together and decided the one of the with the fullest bladder would let it GO right there in the bed. I have to hand it to them, as a technique for getting someone out of bed , it worked.

I am beginning to suspect it is an illusion that I am any kind of control here in my Spooky House, and that I am allowed to live there simply because I have thumbs and can open cans. They no longer need me in order to get online, and here, is proof positive that these Bengals of mine DO have an agenda, and that they are acting on it.

I have been getting e-mails from people who are starting to suggest that I am paranoid, it's all in my mind, and Venus and Mim are not surfing the internet looking for deals on Little Fury Mice, and using my credit card to pay for them, and beaming Powerful Mind Control Lazor Beams into my brain, to get me to do their bidding....

Madame Malena Mim: Sssaaayyyy....Venussssss.....Looky heeere on EEEEEbay.......Mousies.

Freaky Venus Seaweed: Yeeessss.....Mousies. Nice thiiinnnggss for us to chasesssss...I knowsss where she keeps the credit cardsssss. But will ssshe fiiindd out???????

Madame Malena Mim: Noooo, she wiiill never knoooow. I willl make my eyeses glow greeen, and beam Powerful Lazor Beam Mind Control Rays into her brain.....She will never know....

It's entirely possible I stayed up WAY too late after the gig last night, but I swear, that's what SEEMED like happened, and I do have pictures this morning.

Love, Honey, and Fiends from Hell,

Wow this blog grows so quickly! :)

I now have a Sunday, which is wonderful!
Played in the rain yesterday at my favorite vineyard
(an outdoor concert, 12 hours of music) and my guitar was wet and slippery.. but what I love about these extreme weather concerts is that the people who are there.. really want to be there ;) and they are memorable (makes me think of a couple of years ago playing in a crazy blizzard in Iceland, and trying to wear leather gloves to play so the strings would stop feeling like razor blades..)

So the summer is officially over here in New Zealand.. (very likely to run off to an Icelandic summer in a few months and just skip the winter)

Ah yes.. and Loki is being fixed tomorrow..
don't think he knows..
He's sitting on my chest.. getting heavy..

Will be a shame to see his beans go.. (they were exactly the shape and size of kidney beans, getting a bit worryingly big now) (I heard some people get implants put in.. ouch..)

hee hee

So...are you going to make candles from the beeswax? It must be really cool to have honey where you know exactly where it came from. Hazelnuts in honey are WONDERFUL!

No treats for triple M and Venus. Tangwen, nor any of our cats, has never peed in the bed when unhappy about the quantity of food. He just vomits all over the place, particularly the carpet. This can be most unfortunate when you get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and you don't know he's vomited. Still, it beats being peed on.

Spring is coming. We saw/heard geese flying north over our house today. Spring can't be too far behind for you. :)

You know, Starhawk wrote that her dog had fleas as long as she referred to him as a "fleabag." Maybe it would be wiser if you referred to Venus and 3M as sweet, loving kitties. ;)

You never know...

i am so sad about the Kitty hive.
can we ever get it going again?
*boooo hoooo.

Oh man, that is NOT the way to EVER be woken up.
And it does indeed appear as if they are conspiring against you, tricksy kitties. Good thing they're so cute.

Did you keep the beeswax after all the straining? It makes yummy smelling candles and is easy to make home-made lotion or lip balm out of.
Ooh Honey from the Dead..sounds like a good brand name to me;).

Hera!!! TMI!!! (that's Americian for To Much Information, hee-heee)

I know what you mean about those Extreeme Gigs, we did one this winter where is was -20 outside, and the heat went out in the club, but no one left, they just put on their coats, and warmed their little hands on candles, and lent me a hat and hoddie. It hurt to play tho...

Good on you, wish I had been there. (oddly enough, both last night and tonight, people asked after you and when you were coming back...)

I am going to make candles and such things, Malena is going to teach me!

Kitty, YES! your hive will live again, not to worry, the bees have already been ordered for Spring, ( boy, are we popular at the post office, kid you not )

Not sure about these kitties. Sweet? Hmmph.Venus is on the table beside me digging in my purse, and Mim is gnawing on my leg. If I don't post for a while, send help...

Sure did rock tonight. It never stopped, and all concerned went home happy.

This is a Good Thing.

I am sure this all happened and you haven't dreamt bout it. I SAW how these little creatures applied seasoned warfare techniques to try and cheat Kristina out of her food, so ordering fuzy mice from the internet? Child's play.

I wonder if eating this honey you get to dream the dreams of the bees that made it and the dreams of their tiny wispy ghosts too...

At 12:20 AM , Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Dream the dreams of bees, and see their wispy ghosts???

I like the way you think....

At 1:14 AM , Blogger spacedlaw said...

Well, they MUST have left a trace of them in this honey...

Kitty, you can lure in a herd of werewolves with one hip snap! Girl! Sassy Pants. You made people question their sexuality. We'll find you some worker bees.....have we ever not?
Muaaaaaaaaha haha haaaaaa

At 10:33 PM , Blogger Kitty Cat said...

our Malena is such a Nutso.
hahah what the heck is she on about, Quiche>>>????
i DID bump Aneeka with my hip and sent her flying...kaaa-whoopsy!

At 12:21 AM , Blogger Hera said...

hehe... sorry... I do that.. :)

It's all done and he's a little confused now..
but all went well and he'll be jumping around
soon.. (ok I know this will also be TMI but they gave us what was removed.. in a jar with formaldehyde.. and we don't know what to do with them.. maybe donate to this museum in Iceland: sorry.. I had to.. ) ;)

I used to make candles from sheets of bees wax..
rolling and melting with a heat gun.. it's so much fun!

Hello Kitty!

:) xox

Will I be told off for inappropriate content in a comment?
sorry ;)

My parents' cats get food that comes in foil pouches. Which apparently they can tear open unaided if given half a chance.

I'm just saying.

You might want to avoid that kind in case the kitties evict you...

That reminds me of some detective stories written by that German guy, where the sleuth is a cat (and the criminals too). The cat refers to his owner as "the tin opener"...

Now THOSE are the evil little kitties I know and love.

I bet they were ordering more than mousies... probably some fillet minion, caviar, and fine salmon... don't be surprised if you get a pile of meat dropped on your doorstep and a little mountain of bills for catnip...

GREAT photos by the way. I can just see the evil thoughts drifting through their heads.

thanx for the update Hera, I hope it wasn't too traumatizing for your wee one.

And I can hear Mimsy's little meowing commentary all the while...

So the new camera IS working. Finally.

Lorraine, what are the books on the coffee table? They look very interesting.

That is the best cat-based photo essay ever.

What's to be done with all that honey?
