Easter bunnies

The sun is gloriously shining just in time for the holiday. We will gather en masse, thankfully not at my house this time, and celebrate the Easter holiday tomorrow. My husband has a large and wonderful family, which after nearly thirty years I think of as my own. I am so very thankful to have them in my life, it would indeed be lonely otherwise. When we gather it is convivial and noisy and exhausting and wonderful. I will have a lot more time today, since I am not being hostess, and will only contribute a wonderful big salad which my husband will probably make. We may still have a little romaine in the garden, that would be nice. I don't think I have mentioned before that my husband is a talented and enthusiastic cook. He actually surfs the web for new recipes and occasionally visits strange little markets to find exotic ingredients. Sometimes he lets me in the kitchen and we work together, but most often I am happy not to be there. Fair is fair, though, I do help clean up.

I spent a little time in my workroom last night, and also some in the wee hours of the morning (I did sleep some in between, so I'm not talking about non stop inspiration.) It was soothing to feel the fabric under my fingers and arrange and rearrange the colors. My terrible mood left with the rain, thankfully, and now I am bouncing around being obnoxiously cheerful and optimistic about life.

Did I mention that we have a yard full of bunnies? Just in time for Easter, I am not kidding, the place is overrun with little brown bunnies. I sat at my computer this morning watching one hiding behind the Mexican sage plant, eventually venturing out to nibble anything and everything in plant form. They are absolutely beautiful, tiny pink lined ears, velvety looking brown fur, twitchy little noses. Fortunately they are also extremely fast, since my dogs take off after them whenever I let them out. We have decided that they must have a den under the deck somewhere.

Today I hope to get back into my room, maybe paint some fabric. It seems like a good day for it, although it is so beautiful outside I might do some lazy gardening. Happy Easter and spring blessings to you all.

I envy you your bunnies. We haven't seen a local rabbit since we moved to california 7 years ago. I have a feeling that the 5 red-shoulder hawks, and the pack of coyote may have something to do with it. I love watching the hawks and they don't eat my veggies, so I'm happy with the trade off.

Cleaning and working in your studio is a good thing too. Do we get a pictures of it all clean and organized?
