Well, the weathermen were right about snow…in some areas of North Carolina! This was one of those storms that dropped nearly a foot of snow in some places, but then not far away only dropped rain. There are some frustrated NC residents, folks who bought sleds and milk and bread, but then only got rain. We got about half a foot of snow around here, maybe a little more. It ended up being a mix of sleet and snow. It sure is pretty, but baby it’s cold outside!
A friend of ours is snowed in as a nurse where she works. We agreed to walk her dogs for her. We sent her some sweet pictures to let her know that her babies are happy and cared for!
Bailey is white. Little Guy is black. They have their bright Christmas sweaters on and are ready to go see the fluffy white stuff!
Once outside, they did their business and ran for home! Did not take long for their little paws to get cold! I do think they enjoyed it, though! They jumped through the deep snow and ran ahead, making us run to keep up with them.
In other news, something very, very sweet, I know you remember that Michaela and I were raising bunnies, way back when, at the old house. It is heartbreaking to give away animals. It is heartbreaking to see what it does to your children. Some of the families in our homeschooling group adopted our bunnies when I left the old house. Three or four of them took a bunny apiece. One family that I had only known from the internet took several of them. I am happy to report that we keep up with two of the bunnies. Sadly, Basil is gone now, but he was loved and well cared for the duration of his life. Anyway, check this out! Below you will see Gingersnap, the bun-bun that was born with somewhat splayed legs, a deformity that bunnies can have. Can you believe that Gingersnap is now a spoiled indoor bun-bun who lives and sleeps with a beagle, and runs and jumps in the snow? Be still my heart.
Yes, this is Michaela’s little Gingersnap, now cared for by owners who have a wonderful loving home. It warmed my heart to see this. Gingersnap looks to be doing pretty good with his hind legs. It was not as bad a deformity as it could have been, but he always did hop a little funny and slow.
That is all for now, but stay tuned for snow photos! Enjoy this day!
