Alas and alack, Tutu finally passed, three weeks after the Benadryl didn't kill him. He had been eating and pooping mostly in a normal way, until Wednesday. Yesterday afternoon, I put him outside in the grass while I cleaned his container and when I came to get him, he was gone. Peacefully.
Today, I took three more bunnies and several cages to their new home down in Breckinridge County, Kentucky. Yay! Saw the new quarters and surrounding area, and I am happy. Jodi will be a good mom to them.
I am down to 14 bunnies yet to move. I plan to keep Oscar Wilde Hare and Sugar as fiber pets.
The weather here has been loverly! Highs near 70º and blue skies. The first daffodils have bloomed, and there is a mockingbird across the street that sings at night.
Knitting consists of a pair from Cat Bordhi's Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters. The book, methinks, is a one trick pony. The general architecture of the sock is interesting, but all of the patterns are mostly ho-hum. I have never done toe-up socks, so that part is interesting and the heel treatment is clever and easy. I think this could have been a much cheaper book. I have more sock yarn and her first sock book, so that shall be my nekst project.
The chicks are all well, save for one that bit the dust on day 2. They are growing apace. My two grown hens have been giving me an egg almost every day, again.
