Lillian Virginia Mountweazel and The Summer House
Good afternoon, dear Weazie.
Lillian Virginia Mountweazel, actually.
She doesn't expect formality.
She's casual, easy going.
Our dear Ratty-Rat.
Our bunny, Sanka, got a home improvement, when she moved out of her old hutch and into her Bunny Casa and Loft. That left a vacant apartment. Weazie lives in a very large fish tank, in the garage, snug and secure, and she gets the company of everyone coming and going. These days are warmer, and all the coming and going seems to be outdoors, so William and I came up with a clever idea... while we are outside, building barns and puttering in the spring air, Weazie can be in the hutch!
We moved Weazie's new summer house from the side yard, to a more central spot along the kitchen wall. It's always shaded there, and from the new spot, Weazie can catch all of our action as we go about our business, and she can enjoy her own amusements in her vacation home.
Weazie's reaction? Happy-explorer-scurrying-snoozing bliss.
She has plenty of room in her regular home, but now she can enjoy open air, new sniffables, and the novel obstacles and goodies we set up for her. Even her naps look more interesting, probably due to her invigorated state, and elevated endorphins.
Food is not a big incentive for her. She loves to interact, and explore. Sometimes though, we find something that she finds exceptionally tempting, like the brown rice she is enjoying.
Good friends, a shoulder to lean on, fine food, a home with a view... Weazie lives the good life.
Yes, she does live a very good life.
All this talk of fine food and good friends reminds me of two things:
1. It's Izzie's birthday, and she is six, today!
Happy Birthday, Izzie!
2. It's Pi Day!
Happy 3.14159265358979323846... Day!
