I feed the birds

At work, we have some bird feeders set up outside the windows of the main rooms.  My seniors spend hours looking outside at the birds.  But it isn’t just birds eating there.  A few weeks back I posted about the rabbits that eat there too.photo 1Don’t tell the boss, but we also get mice.

Now that spring has arrived, we have new guests.photo 1

Excuse the messy yard.  It is spring and landscaping is on the agenda for this year.  Looks like crap now. photo 2We think this is the Misses of the pair.  Hubby was standing guard on the roof.photo 3

If the window wasn’t there, she’s be about 2 feet away from my seniors.  They are loving their “nature” show.  We spent quite some time watching them and joking that I may be over feeding the sparrows a bit!

I taut I taw a bunny wabbit!

I keep some bird feeders full near the window where my seniors (at work) sit and eat their meals.  They often tell me about all the cute little birds that hang out there and about how fat they are.  Hmmmm.  I wonder if they have their glasses on….?photo 2

Lets see that up closer…photo 1

Yup, definitely a rabbit…cute little rabbit…I want to hold you and kiss you and call you George…. Sorry got carried away there.

Look at this…Monday again

Weekends do go pretty fast don’t they?  Don’t get me wrong.  I like my job and all its little perks.photo

I’m the only person at work that has the little perk of having Stevie the Wonder Bird relax into my strokes.  Look at how his eyes are starting to close to slits!  Sometimes he relaxes to the point that he can’t hold his head up and he rests his beak on the floor by his feet.

That is a nice perk but the weekends still go to fast.

In lieu of…

I am lounging in a post-Christmas haze of laziness.  Well, that is not exactly true.  I have been producing…just not in the sewing department.  After a busy year sewing, no huge Historical Sew Fortnightly projects due for a bit and no costume events until we leave this deep freeze, I haven’t felt the need to sew for a few days.  I have been lounging on the couch knitting random blocks of…well knitting.

I have been making blocks for a knitted quilt with the goal of using up a huge ball of turquoise acrylic wool.  This wool is completely useless for Victorian wear because of the color and fiber content and it isn’t a color I’d use for modern wear-too pastel.  Lord knows why I bought it.  Anyway, I have a book of random knitting stitches and I thought I’d make this turquoise wool up into the blocks using the different stitches.  In addition to using up the wool, I will be finding out what these stitches look like and how difficult they might be.  Ones that I like, might one day be used in a larger project.

Now, other sewing/costume bloggers resort to using photos of their cat being cute when they have nothing to offer in terms of completed work.  In lieu of the cat I don’t have, I give you my dog Ginger.

I was changing the blankets on the bed one day and look who climbed in.

I know she needs a good grooming but, just look at that face.

I could just kiss her…and I do.  She has been a sweetie pie sitting on the couch with me as I wallow in my post-Christmas laziness.
