just a little bit of time

i didn't mean to be away so long; the last month has been a bit overwhelming to say the least, what with the learning curve of a new job and a sick bunny (cole, twice). but life is starting to even out a bit. i've decided to be patient with myself at work and cole is feeling great at the moment. to keep myself sane through all this craziness, i've been taking lots of long walks on the beach -

taking advantage of the tulips and daffodils in season at the farmer's market -

and finally buying a proper teapot at claudia's urging.

of course there's been a little knitting, but not nearly as much as i'd like. last weekend i finally sucked it up and cast on the icord for the first coraline sleeve. i was dreading picking up 47 stitches to start the arm but it was totally worth it!

it makes for a beautiful cuff, don't you agree?

finally, i've been spending quite a bit of time out back on the patio, starting our summer garden.

shrinky-dinks make awesome garden labels!

we're slowly transitioning the patio from winter storage to livable quarters and i think it's coming together quite nicely -

(those little lanterns are actually solar - part of ikea's solig line, which i love love love!)

(the bunnies love the yard work too!)

The patio and yard look great! Glad Cole is feeling better. And I definitely want to come on your walks (why let a silly little thing like opposite coasts stand in the way...)

Have your bunnies ever had babies? My sons just had a baby but things didn't go good. I did a little reading on it but was just wondering your experience on the subject. My dad told me he thought he took the male bunny out years back when his bunnies had baby's. But the mommy bunny wasn't nice to the baby either. From what I read it said some time they do not know what the baby bunnies are & miss treat them if you know what I mean...To yucky to say:( I just hope it doesn't happen again:(
