On The Road, Missing Bunnies

Been hanging out down here in NC, with the Oldest, and her cat. Mostly I've been playing. Got to experience a Southern snowstorm (no thanks, I'll stay up North where we have plows and shovels), shop, do art, experiment in my daughter's play kitchen (she hates it when I call it that), and torture  play with her cat, Socks. Socks is crazy. She loves water, loves to play fetch, and is very vocal. She might be a dog in a cat suit.

Here she is, sitting under a photo taken by my Daughter, and in front of a little bed that I made her from felted wool, and old sewing scraps. Recognize that pineapple? Look more closely....
Yup, it's a piece made by shell at Raspberry Rabbits. I believe the pattern is in her first book? Anyway, it's one of the Oldest's favorite things.
As you can imagine, I have been having a wonderful time, but I am starting to miss home. And the Bunnies. And the Curly One. And even my Husband! Tomorrow I get a bunny fix, then I'll head home, where there is still a lot of winter left! I hope everybun else has been having a fun time, too. Drive safely.

Going To A Party....

Jensen and I are headed to our pal Speedy's Gotcha Day Party. He offered to share it with Jensen, because Mom didn't throw him a party. I told Speedy's Mom that we would bring Carrot Cake. I figured we would bake it ourselves, because Speedy is that special. We ran into a problem, though.

While I was busy trying to figure out how to use this "mixer" thing with the tasty cord,

Jensen ate all the carrots!

That Jensen!
The big galoot can really pack away a lot of food.

He just keeps eating, and eating,
and a sweet little thing like me can barely get a bite before he finishes all the food!

Anyway, Mom saved the day. She went to the store and got a cake for us (for Speedy, that is). Of course, Jensen was about ready to eat that too. Luckily, I stopped him!

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

See you at Speedy's! Maybe bring some carrots with you?
