Blind Hog got to do all the chores by himself for a whole week, timed perfectly with The Big Snow while Acorn was down in Florida! Florida??!! Not exactly a vacation but a “rescue” of sorts- getting her dad out of ICU and into hospice where he was able to have a peaceful end.
It was go go go for all concerned; crazy schedules, lack of sleep, emotional rollercoasters. The PSA take home message is that it is never to late to write up your medical Living Will, DNR wishes, even a legal will: https://www.freewill.com (You are welcome).
Acorn slept after lunch today, burned up a pot that was boiling down sap. It happens. That is one 8 ounce jar of syrup that was lost, plus the 3 gallon pot.
