Dust bunnies are quite shy, did you know that? They tend not to come out into the wide open spaces but prefer nice quiet, undisturbed corners of one's house. Under beds and behind book cases seem to be particular favourites.
Which is why I was quite surprised to find a pair of them right out in the open yesterday. Perhaps they thought they could get away with not being seen, what with all manner of Easter bunnies showing up this time of year. But we spotted them right away. Cute though, aren't they, with those big brown eyes. Amiable too.
Judy mentioned the other day that she enjoys the way I share my dust bunnies stories. I smiled. Oh my, I didn't realize just how often they do figure into the conversation around here. And, as we all know in blogland, just about anything works for blogging material, doesn't it!
Neither hubby or I put dusting near the top of any to-do list. We seem quite able to live happily ever after with our little dusty friends. It's only when the sunlight makes their presence too well known along the piano top or bookshelf that we take feather dusters and skitter them all away...for the time being at least. It isn't long before one sees evidence of their quiet return.

If dust bunny conversations really stir up your sense of fun and imagination, then you might enjoy some of my past posts on the topic. Soon I'll be able to make them their own category!
On that note... I'm away. The dusting is done. The carpets are cleaned. And today we're gathering up the silver for polishing (believe me I don't do that very often, but I'm in the mood), and then tomorrow I'm going to shop for favours and little plants or spring things for our family celebration on the weekend.
Wishing you a beautiful, dust-free day
