Long day today. I was woke up by a phone call from my Mom that Dad had fallen off a ladder while coming off the roof and he landed on the deck right onto his back. So while they took the ambulance up, I rushed around and fed all the animals before heading up to the hospital. After x-rays, ultrasounds and a CT scan, they determined that he broke a vertebra in his back. I took them home and then headed home myself just in time to feed the animals and tuck them in for the night. #bedtime#lifehappens#countryliving#brokenback#longday#hoursatthehospital#couldhavebeenworse#gladmydadwillbeok
I had to prune a maple and crabapple tree today before my husband decided to do it. He doesn't take esthetics into consideration when he does it. He just wants to whack back what is dragging along the top of the truck or what smacks him in the head as he cuts grass.
The rabbits should enjoy the chunks of sticks I cut for them. It should keep them busy for awhile.
Yesterday we went to my aunt and uncle's place to press apples for apple cider vinegar. They had picked 3 large buckets of apples from their tree before we even arrived. While the guys got Joe's new fruit press set up, and figured out a system they wanted to use, Aunt Irini and I took a hike up Dechany Falls. Once we got back from our hike we all got down to business. Of course we had to sample the fresh apple cider (although some people added more than cider in their glass). All in all it was a great day! Step #2 making vinegar from the cider. Joe and Uncle Justin are going to try different methods, should be interesting. Wish us luck. #applecidervinegar#teamwork#greatday#figuringoutasystem#homesteading#countrylife#farmlife#apples#winepress #
