Where am I?

All over the place! I am here then there then here again then somewhere else!
Bunnies at Rocabranagh
Caledon land is simply too dear to use exclusively for bunnies. It is a great price to commit to have a lovely neighborhood of good people and community and I don't regret it at all and worth every cent besides.. but for sheer volume of prims, I needed an better option. I started hopping here and there. At first I thought I could just rent any prims, that it wouldn't matter what it looked like. So I ended up on mainland. Well after 2 weeks I confess... it does matter what it looks like and what it feels like. So I have moved out of one and into another.

I have also started renting by the beach. It is winter here in oz and I am freezing. I can't tell you what a wonderful thing it was then to sit with Xavier and Taz for an hour of chatter before heading off into a frozen morning on my way to work.

I whistled for the rest of my RL day because it was just sooooo lovely
All set to have a great day after sitting on cushions chatting before work

Strawberry Festival and elite bunnies

The Strawberry Festival week is upon us. I have no idea, at all, what that means.. except that to celebrate, the makers of our bunnies have deemed that a random number of them will be born "special". There are a few special series out there already. There are alien bunnies that were launched as part of a fundraiser. There are half wrapped in gold foil bunnies from Easter. There are a special elite bunny that only arrives in the last 3 litters of a rabbit. There are hardly any of those around. Every time one of my girls gets to that certain age.. i cross my fingers but so far, I hadn't had a single elite. Then low and behold! I got one yesterday morning! how lucky I thought! So I went into a hatching frenzy.... now I have 7!

Caledon Tanglewood

I have passed the Caledon Tanglewood property on to a new owner. With Bunny food and so many bunny prims to pay for, I needed to cut back. Tanglewood isn't one of my most expensive places... but with fewer prims it is less economical. Always those few left over prims that can't be utilized. Anyway, a parting photo of Bunyip Bend

Spamming Comments

I am hating these Chinese spamming comments.
I look forward to seeing who said what when i see a comment posted. It s such a disappointment to find " I love your business" or something I can't even read!!
Sighs and wastes 5 minutes deleting more stupid comments

Oh I do like to be beside the sea side

When I run out of things to do in SL.. I build

Tonight there is uproar as Lindens get sacked left right and centre.
Is this the end? The beginning of the end?
Don't ask me, I can't be bothered worrying about that now.
For me it is creating blue skies and sunny seas.... and escaping reality

A result!

So I bought the bunny warren...
and I fed the bunnies for weeks
I have given them all the surname Heath so I can tell which come from the warren quickly without having to remember. Heath because they sit on hay, which reminds me of Famous 5 who were forever making beds of heath...
Anyway I got a common gem here, the occasional half lop there... and a whole host of bunny genetic mess. And I was having to hatch lots of nests just to keep the boy:girl ratio sorted. I have been trying to give away all the boys i have accumulated but the action there is slow.
Anyway, a diamond eye came up a few days ago. Thats a bit better than the amethyst ones I had been getting.
Then yesterday I got a full lop, amethyst eyed, radiant amber dutch. Dutchies are my favourites.. but I have a trillion of them already... but still it was a good one.
Cute, huh?
I didn't dare think that my bunnies were warming up to anything but still I held my breath as usual today as I did the rounds....
Lexi Heath, a first generation warren bunny was sitting with a nest......
(that's Lexi in the front)

and nearby lurked a second generation bunny, Rusty. Clearly tuckered out form messing with his aunt!

I touch the nest... and...

Mother: Lexi Heath
Father: Rusty Heath2
Fur: Argent - Creme d'Argent
Eyes: Dark Pink
Ears: Half-a-Lop
Shade: Classic
Creme d'Argents are rapidly becoming common, but are the last rare-ish thing left now. And besides that! they are sooooo pretty.. don't you think?

A new space I have created-very restful

Bunny Mania

Now I explained that some rabbits are rarer than others?
Well I think the truth is.. nothing is rare enough! Or not long anyway!
I got keen to be ahead of things and bought the warren. I couldn't breed those bunnies fast enough and so far the best they have come up with is a bit of a lop and a diamond eye.
Quite unimpressive.
So I put my hand in my pocket and bought two Hotots.
The Eyeliner Bunny
So far my experience has been that buying without research has meant a lot of wasted money as bunnies have thrown random babies. So I chose bunnies with a good background. ~Foggy~ and ~Henrietta~.
These two little bunnies did what they should and after they turned 7 days old, they mated and I added Hot to Trot to my warren. He is a charming boy, just like his dad. No naughty recessive.
I placed him for sale and in a week I haven't had one single interested buyer. Sigh
Now his sister has arrived. I have decided to rent a place in a more populated place but I have this sneaking suspicion that all the markets are populated by people just like me.. people trying to sell bunnies that started too late.
As soon as I can gather enough strength of mind, I will gather my bunnies and pop them into inventory. No point giving them away at the poor prices that bunnies are now attracting.
The up side has been that in the last month I have seen more of SL than in the two years before.
Also I have seen a lot of better building. I think the places I have stayed have become complacent.
I am going to have to figure out how I am going to do better sculpties as the world is marching on!

So, anyway!
I have put Hot to Trot and Hetty Trot for sale together as sibblings.

When you mate siblings you can get mutants so it can attract a premium.
They are up for offers at Moon Rise.

I have a stall there and have peppered photos of the sim here.
It's a cute place :)
