When C.S.Farmer woke me up this morning, he wanted to show me what our sheep were doing. They were hiding from the rain under our fig tree. This picture makes me think of the ostrich who only sticks his head in the sand to hide. If I can't see you, you can't see me!
After laughing at the sheep I headed upstairs, passing a window. As I looked out, my heart sank. I immediately called to hubby. "The rabbit cage is opened!" He ran out and found D3's small Lion Head bunny, Smokey, gone. I went out to help him search and cried the entire time. D3 is my animal whisperer. She's kind and loving to animals. Smokey is her baby. I knew she'd be broken hearted. So I searched and prayed. After a while we couldn't find her. C.S. Farmer needed to tell me that he'd seen a fox about two hours earlier when he'd heard the chicken alarms go off. Bock-bock-bock! My heart sank. I went in the house and woke up the three bigger girls. They immediately helped me search. As shrubs, overgrown grass (our lawn mower has been broken), and spaces under the house and buildings were being searched, D1 shouted that she'd found Smokey. I was happy, yet hesitant. Found her in what condition? D3 recovered the scared, wet rabbit. Thankfully, she was unharmed. She enjoyed the warm towel and the extra attention.
I want to introduce you to a new doggie friend. This American Eskimo pup belongs to D4's music teacher. I couldn't resist taking pictures of her sweet face.
Happy Birthday to my precious friend, Kim, at My Field of Dreams! I count you as one of my blessings in life. Have a
wonderful year. God Bless you and your family!
