That's The Way To Do It!! Hurrah For The Bees!!
Let's just start right here and take the suspense right out of the way!!!!!!! Yes, that does seem to be the BLUE ribbon on OUR pot of honey!!!! I am so proud of our Bees! Not only can they MAKE honey, but they can make award winning honey!
Here is another shot of the Award Winning Honey with some other winners...
And of course, one of me with all the winners! This has been an amazing 15 months for me, having gone from have a fear of Bees bordering on Phobic, to working with them, hand feeding them, stealing their honey, and now winning a Blue Ribbon. Just goes to show you...
For a day that started like mine did...Yes, this is a good story, tho not perhaps, a ringing endorsement for adopting Bengals. Lying in bed waking up this morning, I heard Kitties in the room, and called out to them, without crawling out of the covers, as one does...
"Kitties come here...in the bed..I'm awake...What are you doing? It....Kind of...Sounds like..You are.... taking the screen off the window and going out onto the roof!!!!!????"
Darned if the fiends hadn't managed it.
MIM: Look! I can walk the ridgepole!!!
ME: Get your furry butts back in here before you fall and break all your kitty legs leaving me with vet bills of doom!
MIM: Ok....Sorry...Right...Coming in now...
VENUS: No. You Suck. I like it out here. And I spent a lot of time taking that screen off while you were sleeping.
ME: Venus, darling, don't make me come out there...
VENUS: I believe that why???? Look, I'm a gargoyle!
And so it went...She came in (ok, was dragged in when she got close enough for me to reach her, she was right, I sure wasn't going out there for anything) and my day got busier and spiraled downward, a seemingly never ending, never trouble free project I have been working on, collapsing like a house of cards yet again, leaving me in near meltdown mode, using language that Venus herself would have been proud of.
But then I got a Blue Ribbon.
And the world went right again.
And now I am going back to the Faire.
Love and Blue Ribbons,
