Saturdayness and Finishing Touches
When I made Sanka's new and improved bunny loft, it was less a matter of 'new construction,' and more a case of strategic alignment. I placed a small chicken coop, constructed from an old Ikea picnic table, on top of a four foot by four foot raised garden bed. Then I found scraps of lumber to cover the gaps, where the coop didn't cover the bed.
Have you ever heard the word cattywampus? How about wonky? Yeah, those are applicable to a lot of things I do. But it was, no doubt, an improvement, and all it really needed to make it a whole lot better-safer-prettier were a few thoughtfully placed wood screws...
No one was happy about the noise of the power drill, least of all Sanka. But I did thank Geoff for helping me get the finishing touches complete on the bunny casa. And now everyone is happier, and safer.
Sanka sat close, and we chatted together. Well, I chatted, and pet her, and she listened attentively, and her nerves settled.
And then she had to dash... something about burrowing, tunneling, digging, hopping, and other bunnyness.
And your Saturday morning, what's hoppin-ing?
