Hello, little blog! I thought, since the laptop is now in working order (something happened with the hard drive and also something else - I don't know details), I'd check in. Boy has the time been passing super fast; I can't believe all the back-to-school posts and activities around.
My goal today is to take my camera outside to snap pictures of the fairy garden the girls and I have been putting together. We had an unwelcome visitor, in the form of a black bear, come around while we were attending a picnic yesterday evening. We need to re-adjust our garden a bit, for that bear dug up some flowers (I think the bear was attracted to the compost/manure blended in the soil mix). I also want a picture of the baby bunnies!
Jacob and Abigail are mainly involved in our rabbitry endeavor. Through the generosity of a teenage friend from church they inherited some rabbit cages, feed, shavings, water bottles, and a rabbit named General. We acquired 2 doe rabbits from a local breeder. So, we have one litter that has arrived a couple of weeks ago; and we hope in a few more weeks to have some more babies! Thankfully the cute little babies become not-so-cute when we use them for our meals. We have been enjoying taming the 2 mama rabbits, and General was already pretty tame when we obtained him. What rabbit can resist a hand offering it clover and lettuce? Oh! I almost forgot the kids' names for the rabbits: Abigail has named her rabbit "Verbena" after a flower we have, and Jacob has named his "Red Eye" for practical purposes :)
Finally in this jumble of a post, I tried a new recipe. Through generosity of another family from church (maybe you should come to our church!) we had some wonderful green beans!!! For a couple of years now I've read canning articles and canning cookbooks with recipes for dilly beans.....thought I'd try a few jars. Those pints were put up yesterday, and they look so nice! The true taste test occurs in 2 weeks.
Well, TTFN! Off to fill the coffee mug!
