Last week our sweet little girl bunny died.
I am pretty even-keeled, but something about her innocence just wrecked me.
We’ve been so busy this summer, that it’s been hard to find the time to really spend with the animals. It’s just maintenance at this point, and even that is a slog. Judging by my research, it was an intestinal issue.
Made me so sad.
And just so overwhelmed.
So we’re trying to hit reset a little. Scale back, help more, etc.
We’ll never do ducks in the summer again, just the fall. We will stick with our two remaining rabbits until we have time to create a real “breeding program.”
And I won’t have 3 gardens in the future, I will focus on scaling down to 1 and buying other delicious things that I cannot grow from the wonderful farmers that dot my town. I want to enjoy my life, not just work through it.
We are harvesting tomatoes though. And strawberries. And peppers.
And I planted some fall plants.
(Which the chickens are enjoying destroying. &@!^%!)
We have some big ideas for the future, and until that time comes I think we’ll stick it out at my little homestead. And if that is the case, then I am going to spend a little time making my existence more enjoyable and less work.
