Winter, Red Rabbits, Then Came the Morning!
Here's a newer pic of my New Zealand Red bunnies! Their momma, Russet, is a newbie at this kit raising stuff, but she's kept all 9 alive so far!
We'll be feeding the cookstove all day today for sure! We heat our big two story house with an Elmira wood cookstove Oval model that we bought when we built our house nearly 18 years ago. Do I cook on it? Well, only if I have to, I regret to say. It's hot standing that close to it.....
The day she was born was very cold & frozen outside. The very tips of her ears were freezing and we stuffed her in someone's jacket and rushed her to the house. My husband calls her 'his' goat because he hugged her to life ;-)
She loves us for it.
A Spring bunny.......
In a day or so, the butcher is going to call and say we should come pick up our beef. That means I have to get the freezers ready......There are sour cherries that need to be canned as pie filling, strawberries & raspberries that want to be jam and any last year's beef that's left will need to be canned as well. Can you say.......ouch? Arthritis in the neck & shoulders will make this painful. I'm so thankful that someone invented Tylenol and Ibuprofen!
Well, it's about time I went out and did my rabbit chores. They'll be begging for treats and head-scratching, too. At least I have a couple of heat lamps and a door to shut out most of the cold in that little building!
My favorite song this week? "Then Came the Morning" by Ernie Haase & Signature Sound. You can find it on YouTube, if you've a mind to.
Until next time...............Keep your eyes on Him!!!
