Our Christmas Tree is back!

Our Christmas tree is back and decorated with little crystal beaded bunnies. There's even a new tree skirt to destroy. I wonder where it goes the other 11 months of the year? It smells like the garage. Sorry, no pictures yet.

I have no idea where this picture came from

Posted by Picasa I think it might be Cadbury--my first rabbit!

Rabbit Word of the Day

Rabbits are crepuscular, meaning they're most active at dusk and dawn. Rabbit parents like me find that these times correspond nicely with their working days. Frodo and Sam sleep while Micah and I work.

crepuscular \krih-PUS-kyuh-luhr\, adjective:
1. Of, pertaining to, or resembling twilight; dim.
2. (Zoology) Appearing or active at twilight.

Crepuscular comes from Latin crepusculum, "twilight," from creper, "dark, obscure."

I've been through their checkout and noted its resemblance to Hades - the crepuscular gloom, the dungeon lighting, the mile-long shuffling queue, the glum, sickly faces, the trolleys piled high with flat-pack cardboard units. --John Walsh, "btw," Independent, February 12, 2005

In the crepuscular lobby, a broad circle of monitors laid on their backs on the floor blinked up at a laser show spiraling across a tentlike scrim stretched just below the building's blacked-out skylight. --David Joselit, "Planet Paik - Nam June Paik's works," Art in America, June, 2000

But Monet pursued the blood-red sun rather than the blanched moon, favouring the strangely crepuscular effects created by noxious London smogs during the day. --Richard Cork, "Relay race," New Statesman, February 28, 2005

Most communication systems in luminescent fireflies have been studied in nocturnal species; little is known concerning communication in crepuscular and diurnal species. --Nobuyoshi Ohba, "Flash Communication Systems of Japanese Fireflies," Integrative and Comparative Biology, June 2004

Frodo in the snow (2003)

I know the leash is for my own protection, but...

I like to play in the snow

Whenever it snows I get to go outside. I like to sniff the garden and dig tunnels in the snowbanks. I can't get fleas when it is cold so I only go outside in the winter. This is an old picture from our last house. Posted by Picasa

Bunny dates

Sam and I have been fighting (for some unknown reason) since the summer. So our mommy and daddy have to keep them separated (Sam got the bunny room--I have to make do with the kitchen). They want us to get along again like we used to so they make us go on bunny dates. They might sound like fun, but they aren't. We have to ride in the back of the car with Mommy as referee and we get so scared we put our differences behind us and cuddle. Mommy wants to take a picture of the mass of quivering bunny on her lap after 5 minutes in the car. We went on one last night. I heard something about "going to buy Harry Potter tickets" but I didn't know what that was about. Mommy and Daddy seem to have fun--they even stopped for ice cream--but Sam and I just wait for it to be over. We also have dates on the porch swing. We sit together in between Mommy and Daddy as they swing. We don't like being suspended from the ground and moving to we take comfort in each other. Bunny Bonding is hard work!

I love the Christmas tree and can't wait to be sleeping under it again sometime soon. Sam likes to bang on the tree with her wooden spoon--it makes a loud noise and I run away and stomp! I like to eat things off the tree and hide under the tree skirt!
