Oy, what a weekend we had around here.
As we were digging out from under this:
April 2013 150
I was anxiously watching this
and this
in the hopes that one of them would get serious, stop tormenting me with late due dates, and pop out either some baby rabbits, or kittens.
But, just as Murphy’s Law dictates, what you want and expect to happen will never turn out quite the way that you want, so instead, we are still waiting.
For ANY sign of Spring that is willing to grace us with its presence.
Sort of.
Meanwhile, I am trying to get a house in order for Spring to arrive, get kids all better after everyone was quite sick for two weeks with a nasty respiratory virus, and just plain ignore the mounds of snow that was settling on my lawn or doorstep.
This week it looks like I just might get my wish in every way, with it supposed to be hitting the high 50’s and 60’s through the weekend……..after it drops another 3″ of snow today.
The cat simply has no more room to expand, she already looks like a barge without water, leaving tracks in the snow where her belly drags the ground in-between her footprints.
Also,the rabbit can’t go more than 40 days without having her litter, so by Sunday, we should have our first litter here at Blooming Prairie Rabbitry.
Things are looking up.
Last year at this time, this was what I was doing:
hardening off my seedlings to be planted in the garden the first of May.
This year they are just getting started so we will see if I get to plant my seedlings, eventually, or have to buy plants. Hopefully mine will rally and show their lovely strength and unwavering hope that Spring will soon be here.
And thinking about that is helping me to ignore this:
