One of the bunnies died the other night. We are not sure if it was the cold or if he got smashed
under his brother and sister. Either way we now have three bunnies and we are supplementing the smallest with some cow milk. Mostly I try to help her nurse, but mama bunny seems to have had enough nursing, since her two biggest babies are eating on their own now.
In nature it is clear that only the two would have survived.
It is precious to take part in this process of caring for these little creatures and the children are obviously
besides themselves in love with each one.
Two already have name and are suppose to move in close to our house and be cared for by the children. We shall see:)
We now have a few shelves!!
It might not seem like a lot, but just these couple of wooden crate shelves make a big difference in our kitchen. We now have a place for dishes and have been able to clear up the mess under and on top of the counter top.
These are temporary shelves but are part of the next step of settling into our new home.
Everything is one small step at a time. We unpack and organize a little more each day
and each day we feel more at home.
I will once again be leaving for a while.
I plan to post while I am away although it will not be Land related.
I am going to Denmark on my own to spend a couple of months with my dad and mom.
Although my dad appears fine when we talk on Skype apparently he is getting very weak,
and I will go to help out in any way that I can.
I feel extremely fortunate that I live a life that allows me to go away for a couple of months
and serve my parents in their time of need.
And how fortunate I am,
that Miguel is the kind of hands on father and the kind of husband that supports me in my choice to go for such an extended while.
While I shall miss my sweet family here and life in the wild,
how much I look forward to be able to be of service at such a time in my parents life.
It gives me great pleasure to give back a little of all that they have given throughout my life.
And finally I wish us all a peace filled new year.
May it be a year of positive change and a deepening of our awareness!
