HOPPY Halloween, HOPPY World Vegan Day and Plans to Expand the Donkeys' Barn at the Lazy Vegan!
So much excitement this week with HOPPY Halloween & HOPPY World Vegan Day! Plus, a visit from our contractor to discuss the latest and greatest project: expanding the donkeys' barn! So happy about that. We will be having two additions put on- one on each side - one for storage (hay, pine shavings, the tractor mower, etc.) and the other as a three-sided "run-in" for another place for the donkeys to get out of the rain and the hot sun. Am hoping that building will begin before it starts raining a lot - otherwise, we'll have to set up a tent of some kind for the donkeys if they can't access their barn! We already started doing our part to get ready by taking down a tree (the foreman's job - I carried away fallen limbs and supervised!). We had the first-of-its-kind tree "incident" here at the Lazy Vegan when nature called and I had to leave my post to go into the house to use the bathroom. Instead of stopping his sawing job way up high in the tree, the foreman continued and a limb fell on the huge extension ladder, causing it to fall, leaving the foreman...stranded! He eventually put out a distress call (which, I later learned, was a series of "HELLO! HELLO! HELLO!" and which I did not hear from inside of the house.) And I took longer than usual, checking on the well-being of the bunnies and the dog before venturing back out to my post near the tree - which was when I saw the foreman with no ladder! It was an interesting time getting the extremely long and heavy ladder back up against the tree by myself, but I finally managed - the only thing I didn't succeed with was throwing a rope up the foreman so he could tie the power saw onto it for safely dropping it (this is why I didn't play sports - no ability to throw!). All ended well and by the end of the day, with the donkeys watching on the other side of the fence, we had the tree completely removed and were covered in sap (especially the foreman, as he was literally hugging the tree for hours!).
Today marks our 8th year of being vegan (vegetarian for eons before that) and we're still going strong!
Happy World Vegan Day!
