Sweet Thursday & baby bunny

Sorry this is so late but better late than never! >>>>>>First let me tell you about baby bunny. Again, I had to go into work early this morning and open, so I was running to get out the door and I hear my dogs barking incessantly at something outside. I go out to see what all the commotion is about and they just about have a hole dug under the fence to get at this tiny bunny in the grass. He is terrified lieing there and shaking, so I pick him up put him in a box and rush to work. I wasn't even sure what it was. He is so young he still hasn't opened his eyes. I tried a few times through the day to get some water into his mouth to at least keep him hydrated and later this afternoon I was able to get some kitty formula with a small bottle and tiny nipple. I have tried feeding him but he doesn't want to open his mouth. I am terribly afraid he is not going to make it through the night. Mother nature can be so cruel sometimes.....

Well, onto sweeter thoughts.....CHOCOLATE! This recipe is for my son's absolute favorite cake. I call it "Death by Chocolate" but it is Oh So Good!!

*and following last weeks theme, a little raspberry topping probably wouldn't hurt.....what'd ya think? ;)

Chocolate-Chocolate Cake
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup coffee-flavored liqueur or water
2 eggs
1 pkg (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix
1 pkg. (4 serving size) Jello Chocolate flavor Instant Pudding and Pie Filling
1 cup Semi-Sweet real chocolate chips
Mix cream cheese, sour cream, liqueur and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add cake mix and pudding mix; beat until well blended. Fold in chips. (Batter will be stiff.)
Pour into greased and floured 12-cup fluted pan. (Bundt pan)
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 5 min. or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 5 min. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. Garnish, if desired. Makes 10-12 servings
Well, it's already late. I was going to try and get to bed early (by 11p.m.) but as usual it didn't happen. 5 hours a night is just not hacking it! Spent much of the afternoon playing with my new cell phone. Old one finally died on me. Thank goodness I had a $150 credit to use towards a new one and on top of that I got a reburbished one (still new just returned) for 1/2 cost so I got a sweet deal on a sweet phone....2 more sweets! really is a 'sweet' Thursday.

Ohhh...the baby. Man. You posted about the baby bunny on's now the following's 1:54am. It's now the following Wednesday.

How'd he do? (Lie to me if necessary...I see open eyes and litter box training in his future...)

Thanks for visiting my blog the other day. I'm just getting around to going to all the new visitors blogs!

On the Driver Responsibility the coming month, be on the lookout for an article written on the subject from some chick with the initials SDK...LOL

SDK....thanks for visiting. Bunny did fine for a few days but Tues. morning I'm sorry to say he went to bunny heaven. He really needed his mom. I am looking to get my daughter a domestic pet bunny. Not sure where to look though. No pet stores around here. Maybe Jackson or Ann Arbor.

I anxiously await the article on the Driver Responsibility Act. I can't begin to describe how assinine I think the whole thing is.

I have a new post ready to go just need to add recipe. Things have been hectic around here and I haven't been able to get to this as often as I would like. But come winter and the golf course is closed....well...I'll be a bloggin' fool!
