On Monday we headed down to the family hunting cabin to clean up from the windstorm (the one that knocked out our electric). We met up with my parents & our 2 nieces and spent the day working at clearing the lane & the field from fallen branches. Mr Chiots and my dad cut up a few trees that had uprooted and fallen against the cabin, fortunately there was no significant damage. The Chiots loves going to the cabin because she gets to run around through the woods and she especially loves playing with the nieces. She had a blast, truly the best day of the week for her!
We even managed to have a local meal for lunch: pastured beef hot dogs from our local farm, homemade buns, sliced tomatoes from our garden, some of my canned pears, potato salad with cranberry & blue tomatoes from the farmer’s market with homemade mayonnaise made from local eggs, my mom made a batch of salsa with items from her garden. The only non-local items were a few Cokes and some Pringles (haven’t figured out how to make either of those yet).
Don’t they both look like they’re having a good time?
