Reality, Murphy's Law and Fibery Heaven

This is already the second Friday update after the Bendigo show! Inconceivable! No, I won’t go into that “where is the time going- rant”again don’t you worry.   I have come to the conclusion that time flies faster than light does and I don’t care what theoretical physics say.

I’m a big fan of math, physics and Science –yes call me a geeky- and I’m at all times critical of some “laws” that seem logical at the time, but then no matter how you look at it , seem quite flawed.
Take the glorious Murphys’Law for instance, or the Law for all the Pessimists or Glass half empty people on this world. Murphy’s Law says that if something cann go wrong, it will go wrong. And if something can’t possibly go wrong, it will go wrong anyway… For instance, if buttered toast falls off the table, it will always land buttered side down..that is.. unless you have buttered the wrong side…..

What brought this Science of Logic on? Well, as you may remember Bendigo Show was great, nothing went wrong, it was all happy universe, so I was a very happy camper the week after and then…something went wrong…..
This week has been in the sign of our bunny dog Jazz who is a formidable lady of 9 years , who also has this time delusion I have, you know: thinking that she is still 4 ….so when she ran after a deer at night who was leisurely nibbling at our orange trees , Jazz, in all her enthusiasm, hurt her back leg. She was already on arthritis meds but the sudden burst down the slope proved too much. She now has to have weekly injections and more meds. She is officially a drug dog…
Wednesday and Thursday were tough days , but I think she is improving and is whining less .

Just a reminder that time stops for no one and to not only write that bucket list but act on it while you can still walk around without pain. Carpe Diem and Rabbit on !
For this weeks blog I have some camelbunny yarns, Magic Bunny tops and some amaingly yummy blue faced Leicester Bunny Seaweed tops as well as a very special art yarn !
