Random Snapshots of Time

January 29, 2013

It’s been a busy time even if it seems outwardly “nothing is happening”. Thought I’d share a few random shots.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis first one is Connor working out back. Cages to clean, watering, getting ready for another storm that’s slated to come through tonight. There’s rabbits in both sections – can’t wait to have a solid barn set up but for now this keeps them dry and protected. The hoop on the left has been in use almost a year now with no maintenance needed to the structure itself except for taping a few holes from sticks coming down on them (or perhaps cats or squirrels climbing over them!



OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASometime Friday night or Saturday Connor got a spider bite – or we think that’s what it is. He never saw or felt it until later, but has had some swelling and tenderness. He’s kept it clean and followed recommendations to keep it elevated, monitor pain and such. Today the swelling increased some and using a clean coffee can he soaked it in epsom salts. In about 20 minutes it drew the ‘gunk’ out and reduced the swelling. He’s soaking it a few times per day, keeping it clean and common sense taking care of it – and got out of cleaning pens today, although he’s done chores and learned a new appreciation for having both hands! He’ll be back good as new in no time, but it’s been an experience to remember.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn easy way to boost garlic (a natural antibiotic after all!) for Connor, and we like it too! – garlic smashed potatoes with gravy and some wonderful seasoned pork butt from the Texaco station on Hwy 5 near Jasper. They recently put in a little grocery store and have some decent prices – $2.09 on seasoned pork butts so I got one. They’re yummy!
