Bunny Habitat

I'm pretty beat. I spent several hours moving crap around Kate's room, taking things apart, putting them back together, etc. I've removed the original bunny cage I bought for Bonnie and built a new four-level condo out of wire storage cubes and confined the bunnies to the area under Kate's loft bed. I moved the bed so it's partially overlapping the window so the bunnies can maintain the view of the outdoors which they'd come to like in the other, smaller cube condo I'd built for them earlier this year. The are under the bed is now condo/fenced area to hop around. Prior to this they were taking up more than half Kate's room, leaving the space under the bed for a cramped "study area" that was in fact too packed with stuff to function well. Plus the other run was blocking access to half Kate's closet space.

It's probably going to take another 2-3 days to get everything really sorted and set up. I have to remove the old pre-fab cage (I'll probably offer it on Craigslist or Freecycle or something) plus I'm getting rid of this old coffee table that's been in her room for years. That should free up some space for the girl, I hope.

I also made a batch of Spicy Fig Orange Microwave Jamfrom a recipe that Elise over at Simply Recipes posted recently. It smelled SO GOOD while it was cooking. It reminded me of this concoction that my mom used to keep in a Tupperware container when I was a kid: Russian Tea. I don't know why it's called "Russian" as it's instant tea mix, Tang, instant lemonade powder, and cloves. Adored the stuff when I was a kid, though, and the orange-clove smell of the fig jam brought my nostalgia for it roaring to life.

Must find something to eat now, I hear Kate rummaging around in the freezer.
