So as it turns out, I’m a terrible blogger. I’m sorry I didn’t post last week, but I was SUUUUUUUPER busy. I do have a ton to share with you though.
First off, if you follow me on Twitter (@anotetojulia) you’d know that one of my bunnies had babies. And they were adorable.
But sadly it was not to be. Bernadette, the mother, didn’t quite know what she was doing and didn’t use the birthing box that we gave her. We didn’t want to move them because if we got our scent on them, Bernadette would abandon them. So we left them. And they. All. Died. Every last one of them. They crawled out of the cage and fell onto the ground. So that was pretty emotionally scarring. (Quick tip: if for whatever reason you raise bunnies and this happens, rub Vicks Vapor Rub on the mother’s nose so she can’t smell her young and then move them into the box.)
Secondly, soon after we got some baby ducks. And they are the cutest! We got four Mallards, one Khaki (they lay eggs like chickens), and one White Pekin. White Pekins are the only edible ones, but I’ve forbidden my dad from eating it because I may or may not have claimed that one as my own. It’s the only yellow fuzzed and so the others kind of pick on him. But they’ll get theirs because when they’re all grown, Ducky (that’s what I named him…don’t judge) will be FIVE TIMES THEIR SIZE!!! MWAHAHAHA!
So that’s all the ranch news, but my grandma came up from Mississippi to visit last week which was a lot of fun. We had a great time and I hadn’t seen her in forever so it was nice to see her again.
And my last bit of news….drumroll please!!!
I HAVE THE PUBLICATION DATE OF EFFEMINATE EARTH!!!!
Yup. That’s right! I finished editing (mostly) so I know for sure it’ll be ready in time.
“What’s the date?” you ask? 16 June 2016.
So that’s a thing. I think that’s pretty much it for now. Sorry for the super short article and sorry I’ve been a little absent as of late.
Thanks for Reading!
