I probably *could* have fit that llama in...

Lordy, lordy...I've been lazy.

Seriously, ever since the sun started shining somewhat reliably again, me and adult brain functionality seem to have parted ways. I've been spending my days outside blowing bubbles, finding the single solitary puddle on the playground (and watching Mr. Munchkin stomp in its ankle-deep muddy goodness), and attempting to tame a garden. Which hasn't been touched in 30 odd years.

I'm pretty sure that this is going to be an epic struggle. You shoulda seen the size of the branch that whipped me in the noggin as I was trying to cut it down...with a hand clipper. Today, I'm going to the hardware store to buy me some tools. Namely, a chainsaw and an electric hedge trimmer. Oh yeah, baby - mama needs some new sharp pointy motorized thingamabobs.

Regarding knitting? Have been similarly productive.

Went to Gaspereau Valley Fibres last weekend. Moe and Steph both blogged about it - Mr. Munchkin and I were early, so we kicked around the farm and met some of the locals. MM was particularly charmed by the llama (who isn't?) and insisted that we should bring home the large creature, because it looked cold. Somehow, I convinced him that said llama was too big to fit in our little hatchback...but deep inside, I was pretty convinced that the llama should have come back with us too.

Finished a new hat for Mr. Munchkin (a variation on the jester hats). If I'd thought (ha!) about it a little more, I would have made the diamonds on the top of the hat a little larger to get more of the "floppy" factor worked in. But it's done, and he's been parading around in it for the past day or so.

Socks! Two of them! Ok, the ends aren't worked in yet...I'm getting around to it. After all, it's springtime and everything around here is tendrilly. I'm just going with the flow.

The hat looks good! You're right, more flop would have been nice too though.

Oh, hey, now that I think about it. Wouldn't you rather have an alpaca than a llama? They're smaller. We nearly hijacked one of those baby pygmy goats that they have out at Oaklawn Farm Zoo in Aylsford. That reminds me, this year's crop of pygmy goats should have been just born by now. The babies are so small they can hop through the fence and come out to visit you. MM would love them.

Dude - I own a chainsaw. Why didn't you say something?

I swear, that child has stolen my heart. Yes, I know he's somewhat evil, but so cute.

I love tools. Take that as you will.

The hat and socks are great.
And the models are pretty nifty, too.
I once had a nightmare that I was in a car that was being chased by a giant, hissing, galloping llama.
They can be pretty relentless, dontcha know.

I desperately want an alpaca. They are not that much bigger than a large dog. Mr Moe says we will have to get a bigger bed.

Munchkin looks devilishly cute in his new lid. Love those socks too!
