Following the bunny trail

Good thing I had a passenger in front seat this morning. I’m calling this post a group guest blog cause it was a team effort!

Maura passed up the good camera from my bag in the back and Anna was able to capture this load of large Easter eggs. Were we ever surprised to be following them down the road!

Fortunately, Anna could get all three eggs as the truck approached the roundabout.

Maura read that they were headed for the Columbus Zoo. And helped me upload the photos from the camera this evening.

Remember Anna’s photo of the pickup truck with the mannequin legs ?

Our first sighting.

No Snow Needed

A brisk sunny March Sunday afternoon in the backyard. James was going work on converting the shed into a gardening greenhouse. The kids had fun playing together. Michael pulled the little blue sled with a delighted Charlie- back and forth, back and forth across the seeded lawn.

Maura climbed around and swung upside down on Charlie’s climbing apparatus. She tried pulling Charlie but too heavy.

Knitting, of course.   The Weekly Photo Challenge created by Krista Stevens 

“How would you fill in the blank?”    I’d Rather Be…

If given the choice, what would you rather be doing, right now?

So many possibilities.

I was knitting at a friend’s home, Finishing up these PairPerfect Socks.  The Regia yarn 75% wool 25% nylon designed by Arne and Carlos is dyed so it turns out looking like you really did something fancy.  You get two identical socks, knit from the top down.  When the colors change, you go on to the next step.  It falls into almost mindless knitting category.

Moon Weight and a Poppy Seed

Did you know how much the moon weighs? South side- a couple of weeks ago, while waiting at the bagel place, I was thirsty. I’d already had enough coffee so bought a lemonade/tea.

I never knew the lids held facts. Don’t usually but a bottled drink.

I ate a poppyseed bagel. As I read the fact about the moon I saw a single poppyseed next to the lid. I’m not sure how much that single poppyseed weighs but I learned how much the moon weighs. 81 billion tons!

Tugboats, Trains and a Tanker Truck

These past few days driving around the city I’ve seen a lot of freight trains. I pulled over to the curb in the Strip District by the junkyard to catch the Wheeling Lake Erie cars overhead. And while visiting at my friend’s house I love to watch the tugboats push the barges on the Ohio River. The tanker truck was in front of me on the RDFleming Bridge while at a red light. Lots of demolition on the hillside there, too. Right now, as I write this post just before bed, I can hear the train whistle repeat itself loudly in the night.
