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, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Saying Goodbye to a Family Member

We let our Ruby-Eyed White French Angora rabbit go today. This breed takes a lot of care, combing the fiber regularly to prevent matting, and generally letting them exercise and eat healthy. I did the best I could, but with everything else on my plate, I just couldn't give Blanca the care she needed.

The lady that originally sold her to us 18 months ago took her back. She's going to clean her up, get her ready to show, and hopefully find her a great new home.

We'll miss her.
(Her fiber did make really great candle-wicking material! Will probably get a replacement down the road when things at home even out.)
