Today Eli put the porch on the front of the house. It really makes it look so much, well so much like a home! The roof will also be going on soon, and some more windows/doors are making their way into their holes! Slow but steady progress!
Now we just need a coupla rocking chairs up there……
Also, we made the magnificent discovery that an apple tree across the road has the most delicious apples on it! The perfect mix of sweet and tart! Somewhere down the line, we’d like to try grafting it onto another rootstock (as apples don’t grow true to seed).
We need to get an applepicker, though. Today, Summer stood on my shoulders to grab apples….but before I knew it she was grabbing branches with both hands and hanging out of my reach! Rule #1 of apple picking: Keep your feet planted firmly on mama’s shoulders! Sheesh!
And we had another bear siting! Wally spotted this one way across Big Hollow. It looked bigger than the last one we saw, but probably impossible to tell it’s size from that distance. Everyone comments on the view from our house…..the wildlife view is great, too!
