Bunny Happiness

 

 

It’s Easter so you can think about a horrific sacrifice to save all of human kind or bunnies.  I’m goin’ with bunnies.  

Lots of bunnies.

How were you happy this week?

  1. “Bunnies aren’t just cute like everybody supposes. They’ve got them hoppy legs and twitchy little noses. And what’s with all the carrots? What do they need such good eyesight for anyway? Bunnies! Bunnies! It must be bunnies!

    …Or maybe midgets?”

    1. Also I got holiday pay rates over the long weekend and have three days off from tomorrow. That makes me very happy.

  2. Last week I read in the New York Times about a children’s book called “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” which is a reaction to a book written by Mike Pence’s daughter and illustrated by his wife about the family’s pet rabbit.

    In a rare bout of spontaneity, I bought and downloaded it because the proceeds go to a LGBT organization (which is not my usual recipient of donations, but my sister would be proud). It’s a funny story of a bunny who meets his significant other and marries him even if the stink bug tells him it’s not right.

    Happy Easter, by the way!

  3. Everyone else is asleep at the moment and I have a cup of coffee and music. That’s making me happy.

  4. I just cleared out three boxes of books. It took 5 minutes per box to decide what to keep. Maybe 20 out of a hundred books or so. And of the keepers, some will be given to friends and family. Much easier than document de-hoarding. Because I’m ready for it. Physically and emotionally.

    Loving this staycation thing.

  5. Had a fairly pleasant and productive week, and now get to go out for Easter brunch. I’d be embarrassed about how many of my happies are about food, but…… nope. And in this case, there is the social celebration factor. Possibly followed by coloring. All good.

    1. I’m right with you on the food happies, and back it with the belief that since food is a life-essential it is better to enjoy it than not!

  6. This isn’t about bunnies although it could be. Everyone knows that cats like to bring home presents to their kids. A few years ago when my DIL came home from the hospital in wheelchair (not too serious) the kids opened the door to the family hunter, I mean cat, who deposited a baby chipmunk on the kitchen floor. Pandemonium ensued because it was still alive. There was a mad chase around the house, kids trying to corner the cat to keep it away from the chipmunk, my DIL rolling through rooms in a big circle trying also to get the cat, chipmunk scurrying to find a place to hide. I still picture it in my mind as hilarious. Chipmunk saved. Another time my granddaughter had to keep the door closed to her room when she had a hamster because when she came home from school she would find the cat on top of the hamster cage.

    Easter and Passover Greetings to all!

    1. When my sisters were little and kept hamsters and gerbils, if they got loose, one of our cats in particular would always find it and then yowl to get our attention, like, “It’s over here what do I do with it???” XD

      My happy for yesterday was helping the kids at church plant flowers in the garden and seeing them get so excited about everything: “Look, there’s strawberries! And tomatoes! And radishes!” (Also the moment when the usually-mom-clingy 18-month-old voluntarily reached for me to hold him– forget awards and honors and so on, that’s the pinnacle of success right there.)

  7. My son is home from college for what I’m calling “Easter/Passover/baseball’s back” weekend. Indivisible (the Resistance group) wrote a Haggadah which we plan to try out tonight. My daffodils are in bloom and it looks like my overcrowded tulips will bloom.

  8. green shoots are visible in the space that is called my garden
    I heard spring peeper frogs yesterday at Stop&Shop
    jellybeans go on sale tomorrow

  9. Spending the Easter weekend at my PIL’s. I was sick all last week and work was hellacious so it’s welcome break. Delicious roast beef dinner with my husband’s family. Cold today but sunny so we may go for a walk on the boardwalk around the local conservation area and let DS run off Easter chocolate. Having no plans for the day is lovely.

  10. I am happy that I got to hang out with some friends I really like last night. Also that the party across the hall from me FINALLY ENDED around 3 in the morning. The moment I realized there was no more sound coming from across the hall was a very beautiful moment.

  11. 25 people coming for brunch today, so I’d better be about it. Happiness in that my house is clean, my garden looks splendid, and I’ve been hosting this thing since 1982. It predates the husband.

  12. There are bunnies under my bird feeder. I should probably call it a “bird/bunny/chipmunk/squirrel/deer feeder, really. I loves the bunnies. (I have a big fence around my garden, which makes that easier than it might be otherwise.)

    I have a quiet day at home with writing and reorganizing planned. (I’m still trying to redo things to make them more teen kitten proof.) And so far, at least, the two sick kittens seem better, which is a big happy.

  13. There have been three days of non-rainy weather and even sunshine. So the closet is on hold and I have been working in the garden. After I ripped out hundreds of snowbells, I found dozens of bright blue siberian squills coming into bloom. I love those guys.

  14. Le lapin est blanc et joli.

    Thanks to Krissie’s blog awhile back, I downloaded the Duolingo app and the Duolingo Tiny cards apps for free. I have been learning and practicing my French. While there is no reason in the world for me to learn French, it makes me happy and makes me feel like I am using my brain, at least a little.

    Duolingo says I am about 30% fluent in French, so I can’t guarantee that the above sentence is correct, but it is my best attempt at saying “The rabbit is white and pretty.”

  15. My thirty year old gardenia that lost half of itself in Hurricane Irma has a beautiful white blossom today and my Christmas/holiday cacti have a few buds for a possible third bloom this season. This makes me smile.

  16. Happy my knee surgery was successful. Managing the pain ok. Home from daughter’s yesterday. Have to toughen up now and do it all myself. Preparing food is a pain. I might lose some weight.
    Happy Easter, Passover, spring, whatever you celebrate.

  17. This past week, spring break, my two teenage grandsons worked hard with me to clear up my astonishingly cluttered sewing room—think HOARDERS—and genuine physical progress is being made. Donated a carload of fabric to Salvation Army, with more stuff to come. I am actually achieving some mental clarity about what I want or just assume that I want in my life, which is a benefit I honestly did not expect to occur. The cleanup process was interrupted by the arrival of my younger son and his three children from Sacramento, but we will finish later. The important thing is that for two glorious days I was surrounded by my children and six of my seven grandchildren, and the only greater joy would be if my oldest grandson and his wife and the two little great-grandsons could be here too. My children have returned to their own homes, and today on I am on my own, just relaxing and feeling incredibly blessed. Happy Easter!

  18. Meeting the undertaker in the dark wood this morning cheered me up no end. I was deep in my persistent existential crisis – I’m not supposed to exist, since I don’t earn a living or have 2.4 chldren – and pretty depressed. And then Nick appeared, out of the blue. We went through primary and junior school together, though were never friends (girls and boys weren’t allowed to play together). He and his wife were great when Mum and Dad died, and just chatting to another person pulled me right out of my depression.

    Then I saw plenty of primroses and celandines along the lane, which confirmed spring is coming. And my mad plan to make myself brownies, bilberry and apple pie and a roast chicken dinner has worked. And a couple of glasses of claret have rendered me pleasantly reslaxed

  19. One of my sons facetimed me from Venice this morning, and my excitement made him smile. Which in turn made me very happy. Plus I have submitted the second third of a ghostwritten novel. Money!!! That also makes me happy, as poor Oreo (grey and white rescue terrier I adopted last summer) needs surgery and money means I can pay for it.

    Turns out little dogs often have knee issues. This makes me happy that Pippin’s knees are very sound.

    I am excited, and very scared to be leaving horrific day job in June to write full time. I might even find the creativity to work on my own stuff again. I have lots of stories I’m saving for me.

  20. I spent the entire weekend being useless and it was lovely. Must work tonight, but I like my work so that’s not a problem, either. Dogs snoozing beside me, lunch with Meg tomorrow, roast beef on croissant for dinner tonight, life is good.

  21. I’m happy to actually read this blog on the day it was posted. I’m usually so far behind that posting is not an option.

  22. Cooked lots of food from delish recipes, brunch with friends, cut flowers from the garden and arranged in a semi-planned frenzy, gave dinner to friends. They bought daffodils and macarons. House is clean. Lots of neighbors stopped by to say how much they like the new stone edging to our property. Oh, finished my article and made deadline. All the happies.

  23. Love that lead rabbit. You can tell he/she after first assessing is action-oriented. And cute with it.

  24. Had a pleasant family get-together yesterday that Baby dealt with admirably (very loud and with strangers, albeit friendly ones, but he just took it all in), unlikely to go anywhere today as it is drenching rain but I’m OK with that as there is no *need* to go anywhere (i.e. we’re all stocked up), and I’m planning on making a really good meatloaf for dinner (have done it before and we love it). Possibly with mashed potatoes, we’ll see how I feel. Either way it should be good snuggly comfort food, perfect for the weather! And, of course, chocolate… 🙂

    Good and happy wishes to all for the coming week!

  25. I met someone who is important to someone who’s important to me, met my friends’ baby, had a lovely dinner with an ex and his best friend, had friends over for board games, and did literally hours of weekly food prep. I am pretty happy, though my to-do list today is…I’m not thinking about it.

  26. Listening to my daughter yell out “Bunny!” every time she found a bunny to feed in a computer game made me happy.

  27. Hosted a lovely holiday dinner for family and a couple of friends. The snow and ice has melted enough to start up my walking routine again. It’s done wonders for my creativity since my body needs to move in order to get ideas unstuck. And there only 7.5 weeks of school left (6 weeks for my son who is graduating high school).
