Digging a hole

We’re having a new well drilled in the front of our house. It’s a long story but our old well has to be closed and we need a new one. That means we now have two men along with two massive trucks permanently parked in the front of our house causing an unholy mess.

Yeap, those were trees. As in green.

Don’t get me wrong, we want a well. We do. It’s just that I, for one, had no idea what it took to, well dig one.

This is one of the trucks that are needed to drill this well. I honestly had no idea. I didn’t know there was a difference between digging and drilling a well. I didn’t know it took days and days to do the job, and I certainly didn’t think they would dig up our trees to make room for their trucks.

I know there are people who are dying in the world and two trees are small potatoes next to the terrible things happening…but I loved those trees. I won’t get too mushy but I said hi and bye to them every morning and celebrated their little green growths every spring. This year, Chunky was gaining on Skinny and I thought he would beat him…

Then I came home to find this instead of my beloved trees.

I asked the men where the blue spruces were and, brace yourself dearest gentle reader, they had dug them up and pushed them behind the…messy, clay covered barriers. In other words, they were dying or dead already.

Now, this blog is about happy things, so I’m going to say that we’re really glad we’re getting the new well (eventually). Also, this morning, the cutest little baby rabbit came over though the mess for breakfast and he was absolutely adorable.

He really was super tiny and mesmerized our two fluff-balls of dogs. I had to give it to him for cuteness. He was also super fast! I could barely snap a picture of him before he was gone. So cute!

Saturday Morning at the Akita House

It’s early morning here and we’re up. After a breakfast with a bit of broth and their usual kibble, my two fluffy dogs have settled to watch things outside the window. There’s a cutie-patootie rabbit that comes to our grass to eat breakfast on a regular basis and my two akitas are fascinated by his every move.

Oohhh That rabbit!

They’re both at it right now, faces against the window, trying to get to the little rabbit while I sip on my breakfast cup of coffee.

Breakfast and a show, aren’t Saturday mornings the best?

A breakfast visitor…

This morning, just as I was about to sip my morning coffee, we got a visitor.

A morning visitor…eyeing the green selections of grass for breakfast

Of course, our two fluffy pooches had to ‘protect’ us from the imminent threat of rabbit attack. They were scratching at the window doing everything they could to scare the ‘intruder’ away.

Taking a little rest during breakfast

The grass looks greener over here…

Now, I can’t help but remember that last year, we had another fluffy rabbit come into our yard…the dogs got to that one before I could intervene and it was awful. I’ll spare you the details but I still dream about what I saw while I screamed at them to stop.

What are you guys looking at? I’m just having breakfast

Maybe this little guy was just hungry but I choose to see it as a blessing from the rabbit population. Maybe they have forgiven us for last year’s horrible event.

In any case, it was wonderful to have this tiny visitor this morning.

Fuzzies!

This is just self-indulgence at its worse…but they’re sooo cute!
