Our peace maker around here.
What with dentist appointments, doctor appointments, vet appointments, and baby animals everywhere I look, why there's no time for anything else.
Lately it has been a full time job taking care of animals
like this little "Punkin" taking up my time! When my son-in-law saw the new bunny's picture he said to Andee, "your mom needs to name him Punkin". So that settles my trying to pick a name from that perfect list. At least, if one day "Punkin" and "BunBun" have babies, we will have lots of names to choose from.
And good grief, that mama guinea with the eight, well now seven, babies. She is bound and determined to sleep in that cedar tree high above the chicken lot and calls her babies to do the same.
I wish you could have seen the chaos at roosting time one evening last week. Why, it was pathetic. There were baby guineas falling. Some landing in the chicken lot and some in the grape vines.
Late in the day an idea hit me...
Seriously, as soon as I drug out this tall ladder and opened it, the babies began using it. It was the cutest thing. The videos are not great but will give you an idea of how sweet this was.
Every evening now the guinea crowd gathers at the foot of the ladder and the babies begin climbing up to bed. There are still two babies who absolutely can't fly. I catch them and they sleep in a cage next to "Punkin". Come morning light, I open the cage door and they join the others.
Yesterday it was a trip to the vet for Weetie. She has an eye infection. Could it be the constant rough-housing with Smokey? Always one chasing the other.
Hopefully, things will settle down a little. I've got housework to do, and gardening too. Now that we've had some rain I need to dig holes and set out some of these fruit trees that have outgrown their pots. I'm so behind with everything!
Thank you for visiting.
By the way, for my blogging friends in Canada, my sister Shelby and husband Jimmy, along with cousin Pat and husband Mike are vacationing in Green Mountain Canada this week. Oh my, I do envy them. I really want to go to Canada...only I want go and stay! :)
