No NoBloPoMo

For the first year since I started the blog, I'm not going to do NoBloPoMo.  I'm having trouble posting once a week - once a day is totally out of the question.  Though I will try to post a little more often.  The activity level of summer has tapered off, though we still have sheep, chickens, turkeys, and rabbits to tend. 
We butchered our original turkeys, selling one and putting the other two in the freezer, but someone gave us two pretty Bourbon Reds, which is a heritage breed..  They're not old enough to tell what sex they are yet (and after the loop one of our first turkeys threw us, we're not going to guess), but we're hoping for a male and a female so we can try raising some of our own.  With our luck, that won't happen, of course, but we can still hope.  The same person also gave us two young female rabbits.  Our sole surviving rabbit, Stiffler, is verrrrrry excited to have new girls in the neighborhood.  We put them in a cage next door to his, and he's been combing his hair and practicing his pickup lines ever since. 
Soon, Stiffler, soon...

Stiffler sounds like a very appropriate name for your boy bunny!

Life never slows down when you've got animals. Never mine when they're interesting animals. ;^)

I thought about NaBloPoMo, then forgot yesterday. That is a sign.

Sheep last year, rabbits now. Never a dull moment!

Do you eat your rabbits?

No NaBloPoMo here either. I barely remembered the month changed. (What with Hallowe'en and all, you'd think it'd be obvious!)

And what Cookie said - life never slows when you've got critters.

Stiffler's name made me grin.
