Baby bunnies, home improvement and going away

 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!



  1. Thank you for sharing such beauty - your photo's are always so bright and luscious and although at times I feel your frustration, I always leave this space filled with renewed joy and gratitude.
    I think you are right - parenting is a huge undertaking and spending time with ones parents in their later life is an honour that not many of us appreciate enough. I'm sure it will be a joyous experience as well as a sad one at times, but with your positive outlook you will make your dads days a delight!
    Wishing you all the best for this glorious new year ahead...... can't wait to see what it holds for you all!! x x

  2. Goodluck to Miguel looking after the homestead and and family and Best wishes to you Christina on your Journey alone to your parents. Im sure it will be interesting for you to go home, and see your family there again.

  3. Ach - I am SO glad you are going home. SO very glad. I am sorry you have to leave the kids and the man - but he will watch after them, and you need so badly to be with your parents this little while. I am deeply relieved. And I look at this pictures of you and the children loving the bunnies and feeding the little one - and am back in our home in a forest in New York, with a kitten in my lap and milk all over my fingers -

  4. Wishing you healing for your father and safe travels for you. May your new year be filled with love and light!

  5. wow christina. you are awesome. i'm so glad to that you have such love and support around you so that you can give back the same to your parents. what a beautiful circle of love you live in. i hope this time away is transformative for all of you in the most positive ways. big hugs to you! just think... your babies have some babies of their own to love while you're away too in those sweet bunnies! i love their garden too. you are leaving at a time when your kids have a lot to build upon. you've instilled a wonderful nurturing foundation for them. beautiful.
