No bees, no honey; no work, no money

I wonder if the bees ever get weary of their vocation? Do they fly into my garden and say to themselves"Oh Crap! look at all the damn flowers! I will be pollinating all freakin day!"?
Or do they just take it one flower at a time, never worrying about what the day will bring?
This morning I looked at my pile of beads to glaze and said to myself "Oh Crap! I will be glazing all day!" I did glaze all day, 6 hours straight, and only conquered maybe half of the pile.
This means tomorrow will bring the same thing.
No bees, no honey; no work, no money.
I should not complain though. I had the benefit of air conditioning all day. The bees are not so lucky.


  1. this is hilarious.

    have you seen the Bee Movie? if not, you should, it's really funny. This post reminded me of it.

    p.s. those are a lot of beads!!

  2. I can really relate to this. I love making beads. The grind is getting out there and selling them. The sad part is that I'm selling them so I can afford to make more! Today as I pound the virtual pavement I'll be thinking about your bees. Thank you!

  3. I love your posts... I too wonder how they handle it? I know I'm all over the place with my approach to working in the studio... More like a fumbling big winged butterfly not knowing where to stop...

  4. Oh, that is way to funny! And yes, judging from B&B, you need a lot of those beads ; - ).
