Growing bunnies

How can life be so busy and yet nothing happens....
I've been trying to get out everyday for a walk, to get out of the house and find joy in the earth waking up to spring. It's funny watching Oscar hunt the birds, he never gets close to them, and he puts on the airs of a lion!
We had a scare with Anna today, while I was making dinner Anna screams and Ivy runs to be saying Anna is bleeding! WHAT!! She comes to me with a bleeding nose and crying, as I'm examining her I see blood running down the back of her throat. I make her bend forward, the blood falls to the floor and I scream to Mike to wake up (he was napping) since he is the one with first aid! Ivy finally stops screaming "she has a bloody nose" and I'm able to coax out of them what had happened. Anna was sucking on the end of a flag and it jabbed the hanging do-hickey thing at the back of her mouth, the blood soon stopped and everyone calmed down. The flag is now hiding and I think Anna has learned a lesson, Don't put sticks in your mouth!
Ivy and Anna wanted their pictures taken so I obliged


The bunnies are 2 weeks old now, starting to explore their surroundings, I let them wonder around the cage while I cleaned it and their nest box, I think I'll be taking the box out in a few days and give them a normal box... Actually I have to get Mike to make they a new one, Pinky's was fairly tattered.


This one shows the runt up front, it's doing good, small but keeping up with the bigger ones.

While at a new woman's group today a mom said she is interested in buy 4 females for Easter, I hope they are ready to leave Pinky by then....they will be 4 & 1/2 weeks by then, I usually like to wait till they are 5 weeks....we shall see...




On a sad note, Mike's cousin Clayton died yesterday. He was out snowmobiling and was caught in an avalanche, they found him under 11 feet of snow, crushed by the sled. I did not know him very much, only met him about 6 times in 10 years. His parents are devastated, his brother Kursten is in NY city with his wife and kids, His Mom said not to rush back, finish the course and take the kids to the zoo, not much he can do back at home. I feel soo bad for they family, Clay was only in his mid 20's. He has travel around the world, learned how to weld underwater, and loved all outdoor sports.
May you find rest Clay.

So sad to hear of the death, that is how my cousin died a few years back on Sheep Mountain... Sad indeed, will keep all in my thoughts...

The girls are beautiful... and the bunnies to...

Life lessons, after I read all was OK, I had to chuckle at all the life lessons my girls had to learn...

Hugs to you and yours...
