Killer Bunny and The Deck Won.

Oh I'm having a couple of bad days.  It's all the fault of this cute little bunny.

He lives in our yard, leaving little bunny presents on our back porch.  He's so very cute and doesn't scare very easily, unless Car Guy is mowing the grass.

He was visiting yesterday morning and knocked over a small wooden table on the porch.  I heard the table fall and went to investigate.  I bent over to pick up the table, lost my balance and fell.  When I say I fell, I mean I fell hard, no graceful stumble or slump, but BAM! right into the 6" x 6" post that holds up our deck.  I cracked the right side of my head on the post, leaving a nice goose egg on my head and a cut on my ear, then promptly fell on my left side, thus scraping my ankle and elbow and leaving a gigantic bruise on my left hip.  I think the bunny is trying to kill me, but the deck won by giving me one whopper of a headache that has yet to go away. As I lay there crying, thinking "that will leave a mark" I started laughing because if I had a video camera and that had been filmed, I could make some serious dough on America's Funniest Home Videos.  I'm sure I looked like a human version of a pinball bouncing off that post and right onto the ground.

I haven't said much about my obsession with crocheting.  I've been very busy.  I've sort of completed the Midsummer's Night Shaw by Lisa Naskrant that was in the Summer Issue of Interweave Crochet.  I say sort of, because I have to block it.  I've only got two motifs left in the Temair Throw by Nicky Epstein that is available on  Then I'll have to make the tassels and put it together.  I've started the Hooked-On-A-Feeling Shrug by Doris Chan that is in the September Issue of Crochet! Magazine.   While I'm working on these, I've been working on various childrens' hats and scarves that a friend of mine sells in her store - Whew!  I'm tired.  But I find I'm happiest when I creating something and it helps take away the guilt when I'm sitting in front of the TV - at least I'm being productive, right?  The sad thing is that I haven't started gifts for my sister, other sister-in-law, 3 nieces, step mother, aunt, and step mother-in-law.  Once you start making hand crafted items, people want them as gifts.  They start expecting them as gifts, which is really flattering....and time consuming.....and special.


  1. Oooh, I am glad I'm not the only one to fall over/trip so elegantly, it is usually over my cat who so lovingly gets under my feet, bless her little paws. Or when you miss the bottom step, now that is especially elegant !!!!!
    I also have a new blog and have met some really great people whilst nosing around. I have just started to crochet after many years of knitting.
    And as Alice said blogs are infinite.

  2. Inelegantly falling is a family trait for me...and we laugh when it anyone. We can't help it. I have a cat that likes to trip me while going up the stairs. I'm waiting to crack my head open with that fall when it happens. I'm off to check you out ;)
