I've Lost My Mind....Again

Last Saturday the kids and I went to the flea market. No, Eric didn't go....he handed me cash and said to have fun. Silly man, he should know better. Guess what the kids and I found at the flea market. An Angora bunny. Guess what the kids and I brought home. Yep, that super cute fluffy Angora bunny. It's Eric's fault because he wasn't there to stop me from buying it. Eric is a big softie for bunnies so he wasn't upset...there was a little eye rolling but he thinks it will be interesting at the very least. We've named the bunny Beauford. Yep, it was the goofiest name we could think of and it suits him. Oh, the bunny is a 10 month old male. The kids absolutely adore the bunny, the cats don't know what to think, and George just hopes he doesn't eat all the dandelion greens and strawberries. Oh! I also got a pic of a rare and beautiful yellow Lady's Slipper in bloom in the woods near our house...it's beautiful!!! Kind of the same old thing going on here....sewing, carding, washing fleece, making tools blah blah blah blah, you get the idea. I volunteered to head up a knitting group at the local library....I know, another sign I've lost my mind. My thinking is it's really hard to lose something you were never in possession of anyway. We'll see how it goes.

Beauford is adorable, I just love those fuzzy ears. :)

I used to go to a local knitting group, they got to be too snooty for me. Oh well. I wish I could find some other spinners in my area, no such luck yet.

That's one cute bunny...

I don't have a local anything group, not because they don't exist, but because they meet at times I can't get there. I am very excited about a spin-in my local spinning shop is hosting in June though...

Beauford is adorable. Do you plan on spinning his fur?

Beauford is a sweet heart...when he's not charging you to get the dandelion leaves your holding. Yes, I do plan on blending his fur with wool and spinning it. Eric said we should just shave him....you see what I have to live with! ;)

What an adorable new friend for your kids! And I hear you about it being hard to lose something you didn't have in the first place, I lost my mind about the same time I gave birth to my first child. Maybe someday it'll come back to me!

The kids love the bunny and you're right....it's hard to lose something you never had to begin with ;)
