Cold… it is SO cold outside right now. It’s been really cold for a good solid couple of weeks. So as I contemplate this word I am sitting in my lazy boy wrapped in a cuddle blanket and coat, sipping some hot chocolate. I wonder, what I can write for this post?
I was brought to mind of my bunnies, and how caring for them right now is a real chore. As in HARD work. There is the thawing the water bowls, the scraping the pans, the checking the babies, and the feeding. It’s always harder when it’s really cold out as your hands quickly become icicles even with gloves on. The toughest job is scraping the pans as everything is frozen and difficult to remove. Keeping the buns clean and healthy is of paramount importance.
There is one aspect to this really cold weather that I honestly don’t mind a whole lot.
It’s the bringing of my wee babies into the house. To see those vulnerable young ones sleeping so soundly. Squeaking and rooting around when I pick them up to check out them. It’s makes my heart melt every single time. I love the wee ones.. holding them in my hands, checking them over, getting them used to the scent of people. It’s a great thing to do eh?
Baby it’s Cold Outside
Snuggled quietly Indoors Blankets Hot chocolate Keeping me warm Bitter cold Pans frozen hard Water turned icicles Bunnies are hungry Work to be done Scrape those pans Bash them Nudge them Shake it loose Poop and Pee in the bin Bunnies are thirsty Hot water is waiting In go the bowls Ice pucks floating In new water goes Brush off the snow Grain in the pail 1/4 scoop each Bunnies are munching Happiness Ooh... wee babies born all snuggled in close Oh mind this little one Has got chilly toes Concern sits close Into the house Little ones come Covered with teatowel Prying kitties avoid Warmth seeps in No Chilly Toes Bunnies a wiggle Squeak and they squawk As they look for dinner Saved from the cold
