Really, This No Knitting Content Is Getting Old

You would think that after a 2 week blogging absence, I'd have some knitting to show you. You'd be wrong.
Truth is, I'm embarassed, and a bit ashamed. But just a scooch. Because if I were to show you my work, you'd say - "hey, that's new". And you'd be right. My attention-deficiency of late continues, and I had to start something new. The good news is that I don't feel like straying much from these 2 particular projects. The bad news is that Lorraine will be putting out her latest pattern soon.

Atticus would like to thank all of his friends for the birthday wishes! He'd also like you to know that his Mom is a complete weenie.

See. This is how I remember Atticus' birthday. In 1995, 2 friends were married on June 10th. In 1997, another 2 friends were married on June 14th (and I was a bridesmaid, which is neither here nor there, but I thought I'd mention it). It just so happened that in 1997, June 14th landed on the same Saturday that June 10th did in 1995. (My logic astounds me sometimes.)

Bear with me here.

So. I remember 1997 couple's 1st wedding anniversary in 1998, as I later found out that that was the day Atticus was born. But, my brain being what it is, I often confuse couple 1995 with couple 1997's wedding anniversaries. Therefore. I confuse Atticus' birthday. I remember he was born in 1998. I just mix up the two anniversaries...

All that to say his 12th birthday was on June 14th. Not June 10th.


"What a load of crap, lady."

Right. Moving on.

I have to introduce you to 2 new tenants in the house!

Meet Lucky and Cinders. No no. They're not mine (oh, c'mon). They belong to my new neighbour Brian, who moved into one of the apartments one the other side of the house.



"Hi!"


They were found motherless by Brian's dog Sasha, and he took them in. Lucky was given that name as he survived Sasha thinking they were her puppies, and a racoon who thought he'd make a nice snack.

They are the funniest little guys. And they have an awesome condo too. Brian's a contractor, and he put together quite the pen for them.

It's funny. Sasha is pretty sure they're her puppies. She had quite a few litters before she was rescued, and I'm sure she looks at them and thinks - "huh? More of them? Again?? Man...".

Gandalf seems to like Sasha. He's the only one who doesn't hiss and act tough when she comes to the back door.

"...cleaning myself...to look studly...cleaning myself...to look suave..."

Malcolm on the other hand.

Sleeps through it all.


These 2 pictures were takenin sequenc. In other words - that's how the little contortionist sleeps. As you can imagine, opening the fridge can be a little difficult at times. And when I do, he doesn't wake even wake up. Malcolm loves being behind that curtain next to the back doors, as you can see by the the raggedy look to the curtain.

"Is she back again? This is getting really annoying..."



And another backyard feature - the pond. It's looking really nice, and the waterfall at the back is quite soothing. There are quite a few fish now as well. So, it's turning out to be quite a nice backyard.



"Without a doubt, I am the only "normal" sleeper here. They say I "snore", but I say they're just jealous because "beauty sleep" actually does something for me. Unlike my dorky brothers, who drool, mumble and toot ::cough:: Malcolm ::cough:: in their sleep."

"Watcha doing, Malcolm?"

"Nothing. Just hangin'. I'm kinda sleepy."


"Gonna nap now."

One minute he's climping up on top of his Noro perch, the next...he's dozed off. Half on, half off. Atta boy!

Have a great week!

Chris said...

Hi, guys! *scritches* The bunnies are cute. The poor things would have nervous breakdowns at your place in about two minutes. :)

Anne said...

Michelle said...

Love Love Love the new look! Glad to see you're up and running. The bunnies are sweet but your babies steal the show! Too cute!!

Bridget said...

I love your new blog design!

Well, those bunnies are just so cute - I love bunnies, and would love to have one. The other family members, though, just might like the bunnies a little too much. (Except for Tim who would just sigh and walk away.)

Tell Atticus that the best thing about having "two" birthdays is that you should get two sets of treats. Right??? ;-)

Oh! Bunnies! YAY! I love bunnies too.

Malcolm steals the show. He always looks so comfy. :)

Lynn said...

Pay no attention to the kitty behind the curtain, I'm the Malcolm of Oz!!!! LOL He reminds me of my Hemi.

Ogh and my word verification is "herder", I'm assuming after Sasha and her bunny puppies!

Nicole said...

Hey, there's nothing wrong with lots of knitting projects. We want to see them, new or not. =)

And LOVE the bunnies! Hooray for cute new neighbors!

Carrie K said...

Malcolm sleeps like that? Crazy!

There is no such thing as too many knitting projects. Repeat after me: No Such Thing As Too Many Knitting Projects.

Rebekah said...

I'm soooo confused. I hate dates. Hate them. There are too many days to remember, so I've decide to forget them all.

I want an angora rabbit. Nick says I probably shouldn't have one. He's right, but I still want one.

Brenda said...

Lovely bunnies! I'm sure Sasha as an adoptive Mom is better to the bunnies than being eaten by a raccoon.

Malcolm makes me laugh.

Cute bunnies! I love the new blog look too. Looks like Malcolm could sleep anywhere!
