The most important thing we had to do Saturday was send skylerbunny's gifts out to him. His birthday would be Tuesday and had we gone to the Art Fair on Thursday we'd have a reasonable safety margin for mailing things out; but this, we'd have no margin for the 2-3 days Priority Mail expects.( Collapse )
There was a slight mishap as her rabbit got his out-of-the-cage exercise Saturday night. He was hopping around a bit, and bunny_hugger figured to join him in playing in a bit of chase-and-be-chased. Unfortunately he (apparently) took her hopping around him as a sign he was about to be put in the carrying cage, which he never likes, and he retreated to his cage and couldn't be coaxed back out. We felt bad about this --- she worse than I --- particularly since the evenings were the only times the day was getting comfortably cool. But the days were cooling off.
