The menagerie grows... two! Introducing the newest critters to join our circus, Cinderella & Goldie.

Liv & Goldie -

Scarlet & Cinderella -

I've been mulling over adding bunnies to our brood for a while now, and with the hubby's blessing, decided to finally go for it. The girls are madly in love with them already and have vowed, sworn on their very i-dogs and littlest pet shops even, that they will attend to their bunny's every need, and that mom & dad won't be left taking care of them alone. We'll see... but in the meantime - CUTE BUNNIES!

Spring Fever, where are you?

If you've ever read this blog before, you are no doubt used to my complaining about the weather. Well, I'm at it again, brace yourself.

Like a lot of folks in the Northwest, I get a touch of the ol' Seasonal Affective Disorder around this time each year when the weather isn't winter-winter weather anymore - falling snow and white-dusted evergreen trees - but instead it's BLAH winter; cold, soggy with overnight frosts spaced just far enough apart that you start to think Maybe I can plant out my... ZAP! Think again, says Mother Nature. Bwahaha!

Recklessly hopeful in spite of knowing better, I've gone ahead and planted a few things out, namely peas from seeds and starts, and a few red kale from starts. I've also started some greens indoors under my grow lights. They're up and growing well. They have faith that spring is coming. Maybe if I crawl underneath the grow lights myself and bask in their twitchy, faux sunshine, I too will wake up hopeful and energized for a new season.

In the mean time, it's all the coffee I can imbibe, vitamin supplements out the ying-yang and sheer stubbornness that are keeping me going through this gloomy, seemingly endless Winter, trudging slowly on toward Spring.
