I love the after Easter sales. I also like peeps. Ok, I really prefer peeps with chocolate butts, but peeps are so cute too. I found these great cupcake liners. Plus, um, bunny butts!
So, I took some rabbits into Black Sheep at Orenco on Saturday. It was for an Easter hop/scavenger hunt. Hero (pictured), Ganache, and Pretty all went to make new friends. They were quite a hit with everyone.
With splash of heel in puddle this sock hunter was on the chase. Wily, willy-nilly, slapdash winding through primordial forest. The chase ever clearer in my mind. I bounced after my quarry, heart-racing, lungs straining, camera slapping against my chest. No thoughtful hunt, this one. Just the craze of heels and toes flashing before my eyes.
I slid to a stop as the *socks quivered. Ever mindful of my need for the capture. I found my camera in my hand. Before their acrobatic soles could leave the ground once more I snapped. And in the snapping, the socks took flight once more.
Out of breath, I hoped that at least one of the photos would come out well. I share with you my find, until next time, this is your Sock Hunter, signing off.

There comes a time in every sock hunter’s life when the search becomes more than just a vocation, but a desperate desire to hunt socks. When socks have been found in so many places, so many times, and yet the desire to find those socks still grips a Sock Hunter, that is when you have ascended beyond vocation.
There are few greater joys to the sock addicted than finding that next pair and the loveliness of this particular pair simply caught me and would not let go. I’m afraid that as a sock hunter, one is not expected to have favorites, but I found myself thinking along those lines with the sighting of this pair.
*Twisted Love socks, gorgeous, stately, and hopefully productive. While the hunt for this pair was delightful, I can only anticipate their offspring to be decidedly adorable. The twists and turns of cables on toes and heels is both anticipated and surprising.
I snapped enitrely too many photos, but in the end present you with just my favorite. Until next time, this is your Sock Hunter, signing off.

I really hope you aren’t sick of my floral photos because I have more of them. lol
This is one of the pear blossoms and, oh, these beauties smell soooooo good.
I think these are cherry blossoms, but let’s be honest, I’m not really sure.
Now these are definitely cherry blossoms, but I’ve been told they are ornamental cherry. So, no tasty cherries from these flowers.
These are more rhododendrons. They are huge which is why I had to put my hand in the photo for reference.
It was so nice this week that Avi and I decided to take Abbie for a walk on the Banks-Vernonia Trail. It’s very close to our house and nicely maintained.
Avi wanted to run, so he took off after a few minutes and Abbie and I ambled on.
Not the best photo of her, but she was pretty interested in her surroundings and less interested in posing for the camera.
We had a nice canopy overhead and many green growing things around us. Except for one incident where she barked at another dog, Abbie did fairly well.
I just enjoyed the walk and the flowering trees.
