Well, I didn't get to slaughtering today either. Instead I took the last two from the big grow out cage and brought them to the basement with the other three. Yes, I now have five semi-adult rabbits living in my basement until I can get to actually processing them. Then I moved all the remaining weaned buck kits from the U and V litters, and little Boon (who isn't so little anymore) to the now empty buck grow out pen. The idea being that now (or once the five in the basement go), the three cages that now only have one momma rabbit and no additional babies, will go from a full bin of food to a measured amount of food, thus saving me money on my food bill. In the meantime, I have five rabbits enjoying the warmth in my basement.
On the good side, Luna started using her foot again a few days ago. That's a good sign. I was starting to worry about her, but she kept using it to climb trees and the screen door, and then not walking on it, but then using it to jump up and down off shelves in the bunny barn. She must be feeling better now.
We got one brown egg today in the nest box (Henrietta).
And a wild thought. I know there are "YouTube celebrities" out there that are famous for playing video games - which for some reason people find more interesting to watch than playing the games themselves... And there are plenty of how-to videos, and videos of some pretty mundane things too. I wonder if there would be any interest in doing a long video of just me crocheting something. I suppose it would be the crafter's version of the gaming craze - watching someone else make something. Why not? If I had a quiet moment to do it, I wouldn't mind, but my house tends to be loud and a lot going on at any given time (I do have a three year old after all).
Wednesday is Christmas Cookie Baking Day... The day when my mom and her sisters, and I all get together and bake our Christmas cookies all together, then split them up and bring them all home. It's always something I've kind of looked forward to, but with my recent dietary issues (seriously, I'm practically allergic to digestion at this point), it means I'll have to really limit myself on what I taste, and since almost every recipe calls for some kind of dairy product... well, it might not be as fun this year as in previous years. Maybe next year I will remember to ask about substituting Lactaid instead of cow milk - but this year the ingredients have already been purchased. It should be a fun day anyway as I will have #5 with me - and he loves to help! I just hope my aunts can have some patience with him as he tries to help in his own way. They don't believe in Aspergers, which makes it that much harder to prevent or deal with outbursts and meltdowns. Oh well, We will be going home with cookies, so it's all good.
