This and That

We are alive!!!!  The storms blew through last night and they weren't as bad here as they were out in Indiana and Illinois.(Thank goodness)  We just had a bit of wind and a whole days worth of rain.  (Where were you, rain, back in the summer?)  Anyway, around our region, there are a some people without electric and such.  We are not one of them. (Once again, thank goodness.)   So of course to use my electric for good, I decide to post something on my blog. hehehe

Last weekend we acquired two nice New Zealand rabbits.  A Buck and a doe.  The buck is really nice.  The doe,  well, let's just say is a nice rabbit, but her attitude leaves something to be desired.  We officially called her the Great White Ninja Rabbit.  She will see you coming and when you open her door to give her some water or clean out her bowl, she STRIKES!  She will try and attack your hand.  If that doesn't scare you into leaving her alone, she stands back and acts like she's going to launch herself at you.  It's actually kind of funny.  If she gets too bad, I just bop her on the head when she, cough, "charges."   Oh well,  we didn't get her to become a pet.  As long as she can have babies, that's all that matters to me.  And if she can't,  she will probably end up in someones crock pot.  I'll try and get a picture of her up later but, if you've seen one white rabbit, you've seen them all.  :-)

Change of topic!!!

I've been feeling very "holiday" around here lately.  I'm already thinking about decorating.  I normally don't like to decorate until a couple weeks before Christmas, but this year I'm starting now!  I know, I know, I've always been one of those people that would tell other people to "give the turkey a chance!"  but, I'm just so into decorating this year!!!!  There is different though.  I'm MAKING a lot of my Christmas decorations, therefore I have to start early.  When I get some done, I'll take some pictures and put them on here.

Well, I hear some hungry animals calling my name,

So until next time,

Ninja fighting, I can see it now.............LOL!!!!

There is nothing wrong with starting early decorating for the holidays.

If you get a picture post of her next time, you ARE going to put in some Monty Python background, right?!

Run away, Run Away!!!

New Zealand Whites are the only kind of rabbits I ever kept. I never had a mean one. I'm thinking yours was abused or mistreated in some way.

Thanks Sandy!!! I'm glad you agree.

Carolyn.... Lol!!!!!!

Donna, I know the people who had her and raised her. They were actually afraid of her. I don't think they would do anything to her that was mean. We have had other new Zealand's that were mean before. It does happen sometimes.

Glad to hear you made it through the storm. I had to spend the day listening to tornado sirens and watch hubby get all of our must haves together and running around like a chicken with his head cut off. But alas no tornado here, but all around us there were and alot of huge trees down. Your new rabbit sounds fun. Hope she doesnt treat her babies the same! Enjoy your holiday decorating!

How funny! Carolyn you nailed it. The first image I got in my head was Monty Python. " Well, its only a rabbit " before it flies through the air and attacks. HAH!
