Last night we snapped a few photos of the rabbits. I bribed them with raisins for the close up shots.
Sorry for the title pun. I just could not resist. 🙂
I took Bunny out Saturday late afternoon. She loved it. I wish I had better photos of her but she was moving around and running on the lawn so all the shots were blurry. It was dusk so the shots I took with the flash were weird looking plus she gets some crazy zombie looking eyes with the flash. Blurry photos aside, I have a feeling she will be out a lot this summer.
Jack did not like the harness when they went out in the snow before so I let him be and just took her. I’ll have to try it another time with him. I was joking that when she was back in the cage he would smell where she was and would be a little ‘arguement’ about it. “Don’t lie to me! I know where you were. I can smell it on you. Grass! It’s all over you!”
This past 4 day weekend has been great with New Year Eve Day off to relax, a mellow Wii filled New Years Eve, sleeping in, great TV, lots of cooking (including some new recipes), snow, and naps.
One of the most exciting things was getting to paint my nails. To most this sounds like nothing to be excited about but in architecture school nails get destroyed quickly. I still have burns on my fingers from run ins with the hot glue gun. That sticky, hot bastard!
Pricer waiting for the T on our way for dinner. It was snowing and windy and waiting any longer would have made us late so we cabbed it down there.
Most importantly Price and I celebrated our 5 year aniversary on Saturday by going out to dinner at Teatro in Boston. It’s hard to believe that its already been 5 years. Time flies when you’re having fun 🙂
On Saturday I took the rabbits out while Price shoveled the snow. It was the first time they had ever been in the snow!!! They are just so damn cute!!!!
Jack did not really enjoy the snow as much as Bunny. He was curious but he is generally mellow (unless he knows he is getting raisins) so he just hung out, a bit unimpressed.
Bunny loved the snow. She was running around, well hopping around, and digging in the snow.
As I was out shopping today I kept thinking about the song “Let it Snow”. As I ran around from the Christmas Tree Shop, Costco, and Micheal’s I was excited and horrified about the weather. I know the average is 47 for 11.29 but today seemed sooo hot in the mid 50’s. Yes, we have had snow, but it just does not seem like Christmas yet. It might be my mindset since I am all wrapped up in school since I’m done on the 17th (news flash my teacher moved the final review up!) but it does not seem like the year is winding down.
So with our Christmas tree in our apartment and our door open to cool the place off we got to work on decorating. No, I was not wasting energy with the door open. We had turned the heat way down and it was still 72 in the apartment- 12″ of concrete does insulate well. So we propped open the door to cool off.
Price and I quickly got to work on the tree getting the lights on and then the ornaments. Most of I love to see them all and see the ones we have gotten together over the years- like the personalized ones my mom got us in 2007 and the poker cards she got price last year. I have my favorites like the ballerina frog, rabbit ornament, moose from maine, and the sugar-plum fairy @ my mom’s house. I never noticed until this year when Pricer asked where the tree topper was that we don’t have one… I’ll have to get to work on that.
Last year the rabbits were much more interested in the tree. We had to keep an eye out for them at all times since we did not want them to eat the lights or the ornaments. You never really know with them since Jack likes to chew on the metal bookcase. I had to plop Jack down at the tree and even then there was lots of begging to stay there while I took a picture.
Bunny, as usual was worse, I had to get out the bag of raisins to get her to participate in a picture. Even then it was a failed attempt and she ran off quickly. No, that is not poo in the picture, the is the raisins I spilled as I tired to sit down with her, the raisins, and camera.
She quickly ran behind the tree to hide. And just as quickly she ran away…
I found this too adorable
While I was out getting veggies at the local asian market for our rabbits last night I saw this GIANT carrot. I almost got it figuring it would last for several days but honestly it was quite scary. It had to weigh well over a pound!
Not sure it was engineered to be that big or it is a natural carrot variety but I did not want to risk giving my rabbits some nuclear carrot. I thought I would ask about it but when I first asked them for fresh or bottled yuzu and really confused them I figured that I would not have luck with this either. (Note: yuzu is a citrus native to China and Japan that I read about on White on Rice Couple).
So while I often struggle to communicate with the people who work there I get some good deals on veggies. I’ll keep looking into this carrot and hopefully I’ll find some yuzu.
