Party At Weasley's

Hi, everybun! I'm just hanging  out at home, with the Curly One, and her friends, while  Mom and Sarah are travelling again.

Last week, they went down to North Carolina,

which apparently is where the Eiffel Tower is located. I'm not sure what that is, but they thought it was funny.

They went to the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens, where Sarah tried on some new glasses.
They made a new friend. Where the heck are this thing's ears? And what's up with those feet? Takes all kinds, I guess.

They saw a lot of pretty ponds and water fountains, but they didn't go swimming, even though it was really hot.

They saw this giant plant. Guess what it is, bunny friends. It's a banana plant. Can you believe it???? And for some reason, they didn't dig it up and bring it home. What a waste....

 After all that walking in the gardens, they took a rest in some chairs overlooking the river.

And then, they went to Bunnyville, but you already know about that. Sarah cheated on me with Hannah and Harrington.

They are off again, by boat this time. They are on the New London, about to cross Long Island Sound. The little ferry that they are looking down at was the setting for a really horrible storm-tossed crossing that they made way back 22 years ago or so. Mom says it was the worst trip ever. She likes the bigger boats better.

They will be back soon, but the Curly One and her friends are ready to party. She works on a farm, picking vegetables, Bun Friends. She's ready to supply us with whatever we want.  And she'll have to clean up after us too, or Mom will be mad at her when she gets home. Sweet deal, hmmm?

Wake me up when you get here, OK? See you soon, so to speak.

Before The Rains Came Down

We are finally getting some much needed rain around here, and that's a good thing. Before it started, though, we were able to squeeze in a project that the Oldest Kid wanted to do.

Yes, we got the dye out. We just love to make a mess!

She tie-dyed what she needed to dye (I can't tell you, it's a secret project ), and of course I found some fabric that was calling out to be dyed.

Then, she decided that the shirt she was wearing needed more color. I promised not to post the topless pictures that I took when she stripped off her shirt, and put it into the soda ash solution! She quickly ran inside to put on a different shirt, and then contemplated what to do with the first shirt..

Here it is, as a work in progress. It did get soaked when the clouds opened up, so we have no idea what it will end up looking like. 

We are excited about seeing the results when we unwrap things tomorrow. After she takes her OT licensing exam. Send some good vibes her way, please?

And what about you? Got something fun planned for the weekend? We hope you have a good one....

Carrots Are A Good Thing

OK, everybunny knows that I like my treats.

And I like my greens, even though I sometimes walk all over them.

But, I have to admit that carrots are one of my favorite things.

They taste so sweet and juicy! Although, sometimes it can be hard to make them stay put when I'm eating them.

I have to keep my ear out for trouble while I'm eating. I never know what might happen.

I don't like to be disturbed when I'm eating, but it's a good bet that if I'm looking especially cute,

that Mom is going to show up with the camera. See?

Mom, I don;t care if you have been a blog slacker lately. Get that camera out of my face! Go take a picture of some fabric, or something. And bring me some papaya while you are at it....
