Hello everyone, welcome to my amazing blog! My name is Lucy Clark and I am 30 years old. I currently am living in Encinitas, California. If you are like most people and have never heard of Encinitas, well, it’s about twenty five miles north of San Diego. Every where in Encinitas is picturesque. We have about five areas of town. We have Cardiff-by-the-sea which is the southernmost part of our town and let me tell you, it’s beautiful. The streets are actually named after classical composers and British cities. My favorite part of town is Leucadia. Here, you can find all kinds of funky stores and art galleries. I love it here. I actually found a tailor there who would make cute little vests for my bunnies.
Oh my goodness, I did not mention the most important part of my life. My family of bunnies, otherwise knows as Rabbits. I have three adorable, little cuddly rabbits. I need to introduce you to them. So Molly is 2 and she is a Holland Lop. She has the most adorable floppy ears. She’s very sweet, but she also has a temper. If she thinks of my other rabbits is getting to much attention she will nudge them out of the way. She’s very jealous like that. My second rabbit is Lilly, she is 1 and she is a Mini Lop. Lilly is white with a cute little black nose and some black on her ears. She eat a lot. Sometimes I think that she is going to eat me out of the house. I keep asking her where she puts all that food. My third rabbit is Billy and he is one. He is also a Holland Lop. He is gray with some brown. He is very unusual in color. I’m pretty sure he has a crush on Molly, but we wills see as he matures.
Everyone says how silly I am for my rabbits, but I don’t much care. I love my rabbits so much. I take them to the bay, to the park, and just about anywhere that will allow me to take them inside. While I love my rabbits, I also love to sew. I like to make funky clothes with bright colors. I think always wearing black and gray to be slimming is boring. I think more color is fun, exciting, and way more sexy than the sleep black and white. I also sew pillows. I made a Facebook page and started selling them. I’ve down everything from Monet paintings on pillows to pixelated Marios. I just love making unique pillows and seeing people’s faces when I deliver them.
Last summer, I did get a little bored of making pillows and I took a wreath making class. So, I have been making a lot of wreaths recently as well. One of my favorite ones is in burlap with red, white , and blue twisted throughout it. Then I wrote the word America in burlap. It’s beautiful. I sold it for fifty dollars, but I was really attached to it, so I made another one just for me. Arts and crafts has always been my thing. In school I could never get into any subject, just art. I have an artist’s soul. I’m fun and quirky, but deep and dark too. Although, I haven’t really explored that deep and dark side, I just think it’s there. I stick with the fun and quirky because it makes me happy.
I do date sometimes, but settling down with one man hasn’t became a thing for me yet. Usually two or three dates and I’m ready to just go back to making cool thing and my rabbits. I think for me to actually settle down with a man, he would have to be a lot like me. He’d have to love my rabbits, not own a big dog that would eat my rabbits, and he would have to love art. He’d also have to have a good attitude and positive energy. That’s one thing that worries me about long term relationships. You see so often these bubbly, happy spirits turn into something ugly. I don’t want that to happen to me. I want to always be positive. I want to bring happiness to the world.
I take my rabbits to volunteer at several places during the week. There are two school we visit a group of Autistic children. The rabbits are very calming to them and the rabbits like to be coddled as well. Afterward, we visit a couple of nursing facilities. The residents love the rabbits. They gone on and on about how cute they are and tell me about there rabbits. There is a man from Belgium who is resident at one of the nursing homes. He always tells me he is going to get me a Flemish Giant. I always tell him that Lilly eats enough, I don’t know if I could handle a Flemish Giant Rabbit. That makes him laugh and I feel that I have accomplished something for the day.
I guess it seems like I always am running around being quirky and weird, but I’m not. I do have a job. I work at a cute book store in Encinitas. I love my job. My favorite part of my job is when little kids come in and need help picking out books. I always refer them to the Black Lagoon series by Mike Thaler. I think all of his books have great messages for kids with lots of humor. I will open the book and pretend to have the teacher’s voice, the kids always laugh, and blam, I’ve sold a book. My boss says that he wishes he’d opened a children’s book specialty store. I guess I’m better with the silly than I am the serious. I mean what do you say to sell Bill O’reilley’s “Killing Lincoln” book? “Hi sir, want to learn about the death of Lincoln by someone who wasn’t there and yells at people on television?” That doesn’t work, that’s why I stick to children’s books.
That’s me in a nutshell. I don’t think I’m too boring of a person, which is good for you, because that means my blog will be fun to read. I think you will love all my stories of my little rabbits, my arts and crafts, maybe my dating, but probably not. I thank you for reading, and please, please, please read my next post. I promise to make it fun and exciting.
