Award, Bamboo and Calico Bunny

Calico Bunny seems to be doing well
despite the snow and ice still on the ground.
By the size of him, I would suggest he's been
getting enough to eat at least!

I decided to draw him some pretty flowers
and fresh green grass to munch on.
This is the best I could do so far...

...with the Bamboo Tablet.
It was a Christmas present for my son.
He hadn't taken it out of the box yet
so I pretty much laid claim to it this weekend
until the time that he decides he wants to use it.

Now I just have to figure out how to use it!
So far, drawing lame flowers and grass
is all that I have accomplished with it.


A big Thank You to Sharon K. Mayhew
from Random Thoughts in bestowing
"The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award" onto me.

I'm supposed to tell you about 4 'Guilty Pleasures' that I indulge in. And my list is:
  • I sometimes watch "Toddlers and Tiaras"... there... I admitted to it... I'm more embarrassed by that fact than guilty... but it's like watching that train wreck and you have to keep watching for the morbid curiosity of it all
  • I often eat ice cream right out of the container and then return the rest to the freezer
  • I'm a 'screener'... in that if the phone number of someone I don't want to talk to at the moment comes up, I won't answer. Except for my mother ~ I always answer her calls!! (Really I do mom....!!)
  • I like to try and squeeze one more piece of garbage into the garbage bag before Wayne takes it out... OK, that was Wayne's actually. I couldn't think of a fourth one and he believes it gives me pleasure in doing that. I'm not sure if I feel 'guilty' about it though.... ;)
I think I'm supposed to pass the award on but I will wimp out and do the standard "you are all irresistibly sweet so please take the award".... because truly you are!

Thank You again Sharon ~ you're awesome!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I love the bunny! I am guilty of a couple of the same things as you...screening calls, and the odd Toddlers and Tiaras episode. I think we watch it because it is so absurd, so weird, and those parents are all out of their minds!

Brian said...

Contrats on the very nice award and your list was funny! I don't think I've ever seen a calico bunny, how cute!!!

Bossy Betty said...

OF COURSE, you watch Toddlers and Tiaras! All the cool kids do. Besides, if you have a grandchild some day, you need to know about that pageant circuit!

Thanks for the happy post!

Kerri said...

What a cute bunny! That tablet looks cool!
Happy Tuesday!

Mary Ann said...

I admit it..I have watched T&T and have wondered if I had a daughter would I have gone there and done that? I hope not because those mums are a bit insane.

Linda R. said...

I bet that bunny can't wait for warmer weather. And the Tablet looks like alot of fun.. Can't wait to see what else you come up with....

Hope you are enjoying your day!!!

Hugs, Linda

It's me said...

Lesley said...

Congrats on your award, you deserve it! Gorgeous bunny! Hope he appreciates what you created for him :)

Pamela said...

Oh that bunny is so beautiful!!! Love bunnies!

Congrats on your award Catharine!
I love the 4 guilty answers! I watch shows too that I don't want to admit to others and yes I am so guilty of screening calls...but my relatives have figured this one out!!

Have a great day and have fun playing with that bamboo thingy!!

I admit to watching Toddlers and Tiaras for the sheer shock horror of it all. I also watch Bold and the Beautiful for the same reasons. XX

I love that you drew flowers for the bunny! The Bamboo Tablet looks very fun. BTW, I'm also guilty of your number 2 guilty pleasure. ;)

Calico bunny looks much better surrounded by flowers and grass. I have a bamboo fun tablet. I've used it quite often and I find that it's much easier than using a mouse when I'm doing certain things in photoshop.
I've never seen toddlers and tiaras but I eat ice cream out of the container. I thought everyone did that...lol I also screen my calls however I am guilty of not taking calls from my mom

Katy Noelle said...

Katy was quietly and happily here. =]

Katy Noelle said...

Ooops! Except for that part where I was laughing hysterically..... I mean, it got to the point where I was laughing so hard that no sound was coming out.... I mean.... you know.=D

BeadedTail said...

I'm so glad Calico Bunny is doing well! Love the flowers you drew for him too. Congratulations on your award. I enjoyed reading your guilty pleasures! Hugs to you and Banjo!

Lin said...

I throw veggie scraps out for the opossum and the rabbits in our yard. They like the carrot peelings and such for food in the winter along with the bird food that falls from the feeder.

I watch lame TV too, I have to admit. :)

I'm so glad the bunny continues to be safe!!

Congrats on the award too--I screen my calls too, sometimes I just need some 'me time!' :-)

Hope your week is going well Catherine!!

Becca said...

Hey bunny! I bet he likes the flowers you gave him. I really like my Bamboo tablet! It was kind of hard to get used to, but I do like it with Photoshop stuff. What? You mean you're NOT supposed to eat ice cream out of the tub then put it back in the freezer? Waaa?

Laurie said...

I love the calico bunny, was he someones pet? He/she doesn't look wild, but sure is beautiful!
I'm so guilty of the garbage thing. It's like my husband and I compete who can squeeze in the last possible thing before it has to be emptied. I also screen the calls, if I don't want to talk to whoever is on the other end, I just don't answer. I just love it when my sister says "Hey Laurie where are you? Hey Laurie, pick up the phone!" Well actually I don't enjoy it! (I'm glad she doesn't know about your blog)

YHOSIE said...

4smartmonkeys said...

What a pretty bunny! So sweet of you to give him some grass and flowers :)
I am guilty of screening and the ice cream ;P
Congrats on the award!

Sylvia said...

Cute bunny !
Congratulations on your award, Catherine, nice to know these things about you !

Luiza said...

Hello "sunshine" =)!

Naaaw, you are really sweet to do that for the bunny =)! I´m sure he was happy about the grass and the flowers.

It looks pretty much the same here...still snow and grey weather, but not everyday anymore =).
I guess we´re about to have some spring soon =)!

Have a wonderful week!

Tracy said...

What a cool toy you have there! I'd keep it and pretend it was given to you!
Okay, I love number 2 and 3...I also eat ice cream right out of the container...put it back, walk to the living room, go back and get it out again, eat a few more bites; wash, rinse, repeat! until eventually, it's gone! Umm, wonder how that happened?
ANd I screen all my calls and most liekly do NOT answer the phone. I am NOT a phone talker at all; hate talking on the phone. I need to see the person I am talking to...
I like your list and thanks for the award!

Lisa RedWillow said...

Aww that bunny is so sweet. Nice capture of him.
Hope its melting your way. The sun was out today for awhile.

Jen said...

What a cute little bunny! He certainly does look well fed (must be all those flowers ;o)

Jaime said...

I just want to bring that bunny home!
I love the patterns in his fur. So beautiful.
