HOPPY (Belated) St. Patrick's Day, HOPPY (Belated) Easter and More at the Lazy Vegan!!

I have been very late with the blog lately due to a frustratingly slow internet connection for downloading photos at home!  This week I thought I figured out a new and faster system and then actually erased nearly all of the photos from my iPhone!  HENCE, this will be a short post but I now hope to be back up to regular posts every two weeks!  
This rabbit can nap anywhere, anytime.

Cathy came to visit the buns and donkeys recently.

Of course we both just happened to be wearing bunny socks!
Napping with one ear up!

It hasn't been all holidays and fun - had my car broken into this past month and my purse with everything in it stolen!  Thief was kind enough to toss my iPhone (so it wouldn't be tracked) and the police found it in a ditch.
Post dinner lounging!

Had a couple of opportunities to wear my bunny costume - here I am practicing at home for a bunny event in Santa Rosa!
The foreman practiced, too.
The bunnies were not that enthused.

And a bunny from SaveABunny!
I got a five minute break on the hour so I could breathe!

Kids either loved me or were terrified of me.

One of the things in my stolen purse were my prescription eyeglasses.  So I bought some new frames that I'll soon have filled with prescription lenses!  Love the color and pattern of these.

Rufus plans his next move.
 Getting ready to nibble the bed post!
 Did some campaigning on Easter Day for the Prevention of Cruelty to Farm Animals Act with Deb and Cathy!

 Prevention of Cruelty to Farm Animals Act calls for a requirement that all pork and veal sold in California be produced without restrictive crates, and that all eggs produced and sold in the state be cage-free. It would make California the only state other than Massachusetts, which passed similar legislation last year, to have such regulations on farm animal welfare.

 Eating lunch at Slice of Life afterwards!

 The bunnies had a very HOPPY Easter egg hunt!
 And Paco was a good sport and wore some bunny ears!
 Had a great visit with Patty (HOPPY belated birthday, Pate!!) - love this photo of the three of us!

Visiting a new farm sanctuary, HOPPY Valentine's Day and more at the Lazy Vegan!

Getting caught up with the blog again!  In the past few weeks I visited a new farm sanctuary in Sebastopol with my friend Cathy where we were both smitten with all the animals - especially a young jersey calf named Ranger!  There were also pigs, alpacas, a donkey, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys,emus and plenty of goats! I am really impressed with the young couple who run the place - it looks like a lot of hard work.  

The donkeys and bunnies enjoyed extra treats on Valentine's Day (and extra hugs and kisses!).  And I got a new load of hay - the hay hasn't been that great this year so I've been taking the truck to get bales myself versus having them delivered so I can inspect them first!  

HEE haw!!  With Paco, of course.
The professional loungers.

This is big news:  even though the "new" bathroom has been here for over three years now, Rufus just recently started to explore it - and now he is obsessed with it!  Constantly going in and out and around the claw foot tub.  It is too cute!

The night guard bunnies.

Chowing down at Slice of Life with Cathy!

The emus!
And Whisper the donkey!

 I thought these texts were funny - Cathy went to one feed store to inspect the hay and I went to another and we compared notes!

 I only got eight bales.  Still not great hay.
 Morning walkies.
 Hilarious selfie with Snap and Jennie!
 I love this photo!  Snap and I always run into this guy in Sebastopol and he's great.
 Another selfie at Taylor Maid coffee.

 My neighbor visited the donks and buns this week and she is a hoot!  She's a tad scared of the donkeys but is getting braver every time.  We celebrated the donkeys belated birthdays!!  I cannot believe they are both eleven!

A co-worker took this photo of us on Valentine's Day!
 HOPPY Valentine's Day!

 Donkey cookies!

 They ate them right up.
Getting his beauty rest.

Also in the past few weeks I had a birthday!  Short video below of celebrating with my new cow umbrella!
