SARBA Show in Seguin, Texas

We had a wonderful time at the SARBA show in Seguin, Texas. I will be posting pictures of the show soon.

Unfortunately, I do not have the time to post anything since we are leaving for a week-long vacation. Hence, I will not be able to update the blog until my return on 10/25/09. The next posting will be on Monday 10/26/09.

I'm going on a Cruise to the Mexican Riviera, where, unfortunately, Hurricane Rick is threatening to hit some time next week close or in Cabos San Lucas, Mexico. Although our cruise ship has assured us that we will avoid the bad weather we will need your prayers.

I'll post pictures of my trip, too.

Roat To Angora's "Rigoberta Menchu"

This is cute Road To Angora's "Rigoberta Menchu". This is a previous picture I took of her in the night. She came out nice and is looking better day by day. She will be competing on Saturday at the SARBA show. We have high hopes for her.

SARBA show this coming Saturday.

A friendly reminder to all Texas breeders. We are having the San Antonio Rabbit Breeders Association Show in Seguin, Texas, this coming Saturday, October 17, 2009.

The weather is looking great, though a bit humid. However, this show will be a great one. Looking forward to seeing everyone compete or simply visit with friends.

One of the best parts of showing is not to just show and compete, but to get to know the familiar faces of fun-loving breeders that are eager to talk and share their experience with their rabbit breeds. We always enjoy seeing our friends and making new ones. I don't see the Shows being as special as it is if it weren't for the camaraderie from everyone that participates and visits the show grounds.

So come on and have a great time! Also, visit the Raffle Table and support our Club!

"Jack Rabbit Bay" Picture

A friend of ours, Joseph, sent me this picture of "Jack Rabbit Bay". I don't know where he got it from, but it is cute enough to share with everyone.

More rain

The weather in San Antonio, Texas, has been muggy and humid. We've received so much rain that the Water Utility Company has lifted part of the ban on watering due to the aquifer level rising.

I just love this weather, it is cool, breezy, and wet. However, what I do not like is the fact that people still drive so fast in this weather causing accidents.

Our rabbits, well, they are enjoying the cool weather, but I don't know about the humidity. They are still looking good and happy, but we keep a daily watch on them as much as we can to insure they are safe, happy, and dry.

The interesting thing on the weather is that it is forcasted that we will return to sunny days starting Friday. Let's see how that goes.

We do need good weather for the Saturday show in Seguin, Texas, sponsored by SARBA.

Happy Columbus Day

Today is a nice day. The weather is a bit muggy from the rain, but very cool from the cold front. Excellent weather to cuddle under a blanket and watch TV and simply, veg out. Too bad I had to work.

Defensive Drivnig Class

Today was a sad day for me. I had to take a Defensive Driving Class and will have to sit for 6 hours listening to an instructor about my mistake and how I could have avoided it. Well, that is the consequences I get for choosing to speed 3 months ago and then procrastinating to take the class!

Posting was not released early...I hope I don't have more problems with releasing postings. :)

Delilah had her babies

On Thursday, October 08, 2009, around 6:30am, Delilah gave birth to 5 healthy chubby babies! We were so excited, but I was a bit upset since Johnny let Delilah sleep on his bed and she gave birth there.

We will keep one puppy and give the others. We already have the rest spoken for, but then again, we will see what happens.

Cotton Knit Towel finally finished!

Okay, I had previously posted on this "Bull Dog Face" Towel. It turns out that the huge towel was the Bull Dog Face AND body. I think that the dog looks more like a Boxer, but then again, I have to check it out.

It took me a while to finish it as you can see how large it is. The color is awesome, but the figure doesn't "pop out" like I'd like it to. However, once you see it live it is better than the pictures. I don't know if I will give it to my friend, Belle, or keep it. Would I knit another like this? I don't know as it was tough working on it!

On the picture above, you can see the large size of the towel.

If you look carefully at the picture above, you can see the ripples which detail the bull dog's face and neck and upper body and tail.

Here, you can see the leg outline a bit better.

Upcoming ARBA Convention

We are not going to be able to attend Convention this year, but we feel the need to remind people about the upcoming event. Unfortunately, many issues surfaced that we could not make the trip this year. However, several people we know are going and we are excited for them.

We wish all our friends and everyone that participates the best luck with their rabbits!

Here is Delilah. She is our little bitch and is pregnant! She is so huge and can barely walk so she should be delivering soon. She is such a wonderful girl and we hope to have nice babies. After that, well, she'll be spayed.

New Silk Roving

Started to spin some Silk. I got this black silk some time ago, but many things happened that I couldn't work on it. Now, I just begun to spin a lace type yarn to make a scarf for a friend5

Cotton Towel Knit

I've been knitting this huge cotton towel for quite some time now. It is supposed to show off a "bull dog" face/body. The towel is coming out great; however, the colorful pattern does not show off the silhouette of the dog fully.

Either way, it is looking great. I wanted to donate it to a great friend of mine, but I might keep it since it has given me quite some tough time to finish.

Today is a good day. I woke up feeling a lot better and more relaxed. I am hoping I finally shed the congestion I've been plagued with.
