My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!

Pix of Kid and Bunny

Finally downloaded some pictures from my camera, so this posting is just a catch-up!

This first and second pictures were taken on October 31, Halloween! It was the first time my Kid had been sledding. Ever, if I'm remembering correctly. This is the hill outside of our tiny temporary apartment, and he borrowed the sled from the other kids out there sledding.

We have since bought our own sleds, but haven't had a chance to use them. I had a really bad accident sledding when I was 6 and refuse to ever get on one again. So I'm not the one to go out with the Kid if he wants company. I'm hoping there will be a good sledding hill at our new house. Would be great. Can just imagine the Kid sledding down a hill with a dog racing alongside. Ah. Bliss.

This third pic was taken on his 13th birthday (first week in Nov)... the Kid, me and Hubby went to Amazing Jakes. No, Smiley's Fun Center. Argh... I'd forgotten to take pictures while we were inside. It was our 3rd year in a row going here for his birthday, and every year, it was under new management. This year was the worst.... bad food, almost nothing for my gluten-free kid to eat. Higher prices. Most of the rides and games were closed for repairs. We did manage to play miniature golf, and had a great time! Have already told him that we're not doing this next year ... too long of a drive, not worth the money, and, well, he's kinda outgrowing this kind of thing anyway. We'll find something else to do. Maybe we'll meet some like-minded families with similar-aged kids in our new neighborhood. (Note that Hubby is sitting in the car.)

And here's a picture of Blanca Bunny. She's our Ruby-Eyed French Angora Rabbit, born June 14 (or 16th?). She'll be ready to be mated by the time we settle into our new house. Notice the orange patch on her chest - she'd just eaten some carrots and oftentimes, she gets it all over her. Usually gone by next feeding because she's fastidious about cleaning herself, as with most rabbits. And yes, there are baby play rings in the background, which she loves to play with.

She sits so pretty, doesn't she? We've moved her from the living room to the garage since this pic was taken, and it's quite a bit colder there. She's just fine, although we have a heater come on when the temp dips into the 40's. The move has also mellowed her out. Quite a happy little bunny now.
