On the Farm

This past week while we were at my parents’ house, I had fun watching Calvin enjoy chasing and “petting” the cat.


We hadn’t seen him around animals since Christmas time when he was too young to find them interesting, so it was neat! I was looking forward to seeing what he would do when we got to Tim’s parents’ place with their small hobby farm. If it wasn’t pouring rain and yucky and mucky, I probably would have let him run around the yard, but it was really wet so we just stayed in the barn in front of the gated area.

He had lots of fun watching the chickens, poking the alpacas’ noses and trying to touch the pig through the fence. He also at some point decided to pick up some hay and feed it to the animals through the fence. Clever guy!




These Ain’t Your Victorian Bunnies

Yesterday as I was loading Calvin into the car to run some errands, I saw a little movement and this guy popped out of a bush.

I was thinking of how very different it was from the bunnies you find around Victoria. The bunnies have their little bum bob up and down while they hop around. But this rabbit, his big legs lifted his whole back end high up into the air. It reminded me of some sort of machinery, and it took me a while to think of what it was. Then it came to me. It reminded me of a jack. Yes. I am a genius.
