Interim


The Year of the Rabbit is being highly anticipated around here. It appears to require doing double guard duty to be sure all is in proper order.

Unlike our friends in the eastern US and pretty much everywhere else we have been having balmy XTREMELY pleasant weather, perhaps the summer we never had last year. In this pic a big Victorian catches the sunset on it's face.

Although it seems like summer, there is a still, reflective quality from the Yin of winter.


Out Metal Rabbit is in place. We visited some artist friends who work in metal so DS could check out that world. I was induced to take plasma torch in hand and cut, OF COURSE, a Metal Rabbit who now sits on the house numbers above the mailbox.

The bunnies make very intimidating guards. The metal bunny is very cool, too.

a beautiful metal sculpture Diana! and I see you have perfect guards, there will no sleeping on duty then?

Jade said...

Love the metal bunny and the twin sentinels. Mr. Mick said to be sure to reward your guards properly, as it is a highly stressful job.

Lisa said...

Your rabbits must know they are in the care of an artist, becaue they always seem to pose so perfectly. They really do look like guards, standing like perfect duplicates of each other.

Thanks for rubbing it in about the weather. "We live in Cali, you're stuck in a snowdrift, na-ni-na-na poo poo." Beautiful house though.

Is DS an artist too? Or aspiring to become one?

K-they have had lots of practice.
AFT-There are enough bunnies here to work proper shifts...
J-I have brought them some roses from BFs....also apple sticks, I hope Mr. Mick finds this sufficient.
L-Ha, ha they say they are always perfect. I feel daily guilty for enjoying the weather, but must reveal the truth in the spirit of full disclosure :P DS thinks he is not an artist, he has a discerning eye and a unique strong sense of shape.

We also are quite taken by the Metal Rabbit. If it takes 2 to tango, it seems logical that pairs of buns would be required to supervise preparations for the Year of the Rabbit.

Perhaps DS has subconsciously become imbued with rabbit critical capabilities?

Check all fingers. Serve you right to toast one for showing us the California coastal winter.

Great 2-bunn pose. If you put a mirror in back and in front and take a picture - infinite rabbit?

Diana the petition has a drop down menu for all the countries,
I had to check this before

(ps is the guard room complete with tv and snacks?)

Glenna said...

Love the metal rabbit! Would you sell one? Lucky you (smart you, to live where you do) on the weather.

d. moll, l.ac. said...

G-there have been others wanting a Metal Bun, I'm seeing if I can make some more. Keep you posted on that.
AFT-great, I'm on it!! Guardroom is fully equipped LOL.
RG-OMG infinite lagomorphic vibrations, the repercussions could be devastating.
DS-is being initiated into the ways of the rabbit, slowly and steadily. Tyler let himself be picked up yesterday...

Michelle May said...

I have an overwhelming urge to kiss a bunny cheek. Like lots and lots of times...and then talk in a little voice and ask things like, "do you know how cute you are?" Then kiss the cheek again.
The process could go on for hours.

Ya Shell. Wait 'till she gets those mirrors arranged - more like forever ...

I love that metal bun! It's still raining everyday here :( which shouldn't but the monsoon is still here. It's going to be a wet Chinese New Year. I do wish you can celebrate CNY here one day..it will be so much fun! Can I borrow one of your buns picture, one with all 4 of them in it. I am doing a Chinese New Year post next week and want to have a picture of rabbits...but not just any rabbit, it has to be that special buns...which are yours. There's loads of cultural events here which I hope to catch during the weekend. May the year of the Rabbit brings you lots of prosperity and good health. Gong Xi Fa Cai !! Hugs...M

Love the "double duty" buns.

RoadBunner said...

I love your metal bunny!! Put some of those up on etsy!

d. moll, l.ac. said...

Looks like Metal Bunny will be one of a kind.

Every year is the year of the rabbit around here.
