August 14, 2014

It's been such a long day. And, I only got one store done! But, I got milk from the farm, the shopping done and met the gal that will be getting my hamster from Redding. He'll be home by Saturday night! Yay! Now, to think of a name. I'm not calling him Hammy!

I found the perfect name for the hamster. Hiawatha! It is Iroquoian for 'he who combs'! And, with all the long hair, he will be combing it a lot (or I will! ha!) And, I've changed the spelling on Cassia's name to Kasa. It is Hopi for 'dressed in furs.' It fits the theme started with Zihna, which is Hopi for 'spins' or 'spinning'. Like spinning hair for yarn. And, they all have long-hair Teddy genes.
Hamster breeding will start on September 1.

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.

Give fools their gold, and knaves their power; let fortune's bubbles rise and fall; who sows a field, or trains a flower, or plants a tree, is more than all.
~ John Greenleaf Whittier
