Random stuff
I'm planning on switch blogs.  Soon.  I actually started one on Vox just for fun which I'll probably use for posts from my vacation in Portugal (next Wednesday--yay!)  My plan is to post, but who knows if I will have time or computer access.
 
BunnyFest in Old Town.  We we're good--only bought a baseball cap and some hay.

Check out this fluffy bun who was part of the clicker training demonstration which is something I'd like to try with Luna.  I like working with animals and Luna likes to get into trouble so this would be a good way to channel her energy :)  The buns were running back and forth over an obstacle course with hurdles that were getting progressively higher:

Meanwhile, I haven't been up to too much.  Obsessing about food and things French after having read French Women Don't Get Fat.  It's all about eating good food in reasonable amounts.  It's also all about an attitude change which is the tricky part but I have been making some changes and I have made it a point to avoid any food that isn't really good and enjoyable.  On that note, I tried a fun recipe last night.  Fun, because it involves blanching romaine lettuce leaves and wrapping them around fresh mozzarella and grilling the package.
Also, of a similar nature, I found this Wine, Chocolate and Cheese diet by Marie Claire which has some really delicious looking lunch ideas.  Eating well at lunch is one of my biggest problems.

On the knitting end, I'm still working away on the straps of the Roundabout Leaf Tank.  And I won't even be done while it's still summer :(  I also started Orangina but it will definitely be put on hold soon so I can work on wooly things.  I've also been swatching for the Backyard Leaves scarf from Scarf Style with some Elsebeth Lavold Angora yarn.
 
I want an excuse to buy this yarn from Elann in the Lichen colorway: Peruvian Sierra Aran.  Ooohhh...I just found one!  Check out ChickKnits Ariann.  I have a ton of stuff that I want to start working like this beautiful but seemingly complicated Weekend Pullover from the Fall Interweave Knits.  I also like this gray sweater from the Fall Vogue Knitting:
