And then, straight into working Saturday instead of my usual Sunday, so that was a looong day, not much accomplished although I did get the July calendar updated and up on the park website, and managed to nod and smile at visitors and tell them pleasantly to please not tap on the beehive and the garter snake tank and to not open up the Pepsi machine out in front which had gotten broken into the night before and was sitting there with the door hanging half open and looking rather sad. My patience with the foibles of humanity, I could tell it was running a little low, lol, but luckily it was not tested too severely.
So, survived that! And now two, count 'em, TWO days off in a row! \o/ I have showered AND eaten breakfast! Moved all baby raccoons outside this morning, cleaning and de-raccooning of the living room shall commence momentarily (they were in a big crate, but somehow the bits, they get everywhere. Raccoons are champions of messy!). Bunny babies are now weaned, as of this morning, so that saves me a bunch of time, too. (Check out this bunny nibble action! Only three days ago they really had no idea what to do with the green stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
