Last Sunday

Last Sunday, I visited the Colorado House Rabbit Society headquarters. You can see photos here, Dee Dee too. Romeo and I went and enjoyed the gorgeous, out of season, springlike weather. It's scary how unpredictable the weather is all over the planet and the rapid changes taking place. I was listening to NPR on the way to work this morning, thinking how it must be to live on Carrabas. The climate changes and the land recedes like a hairline on the head of the world.

Sadie's Facilities

Dee Dee does NOT approve of my taking pics of her private time. I have a feeling if she had a middle finger, we'd be seeing it in this photo.

Whiskers were ruffled in indignation.

But she does approve of multitasking.

2 Things Challenge: Shadow/Play

Self portrait in SHADOW.

This is the carcass of Romeo's latest stuffed victim. Romeo plays rough.

Dee Dee's favorite play things include her chewable wicker ball with peanuts,

her plastic keys that she likes to throw around to express herself,

and just about anything stackable that she can knock down.

2 Things Challenge: Minus/Plus

I thought this week's challenge fit right into my weekend. We can see the snowstorms come in from the mountains in the west, not that we can do anything about it!

The weather's been warmer, but snowing almost constantly, which is a minus if you're planning to travel anywhere.

On the "plus" side, I wasn't going to let a little bad weather get me down and keep me in. I've got things to do, including finally visiting the Colfax Guitar Shop downtown. I met a fellow southpaw player named Christian, who took my Washburn in to give it some TLC. I'll pick it up in a couple of weeks and it'll have the bridge fixed, the top knob for my strap put on, and brand new strings. Yay, can't wait! It was really snowing hard when I took this photo...

Also on the plus side, right down the street from the Guitar Shop is the Tattered Cover Book Store! The weather was really coming down while I was there and I had to park on the roof of the garage, so no pics. (They also run a blog I follow, Between the Covers.) I finally got myself a copy of Marc Bekoff's The Animal Manifesto. I'm currently devouring Hal Herzog's Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat. But this one is going to the top of my "to read" pile.
