Buns in the oven

So I was bust today in the kitchen. Just took out a batch of Squash rolls which are amazing! Man do I live these. So good.photo-4

While those were baking, I started another batch of hard cider. Also delicious! My brew corner is getting cramped! I hope all these wines I’ve got going turn out! The waiting is torture.

As to my wine endeavors, I’ll be racking my Almond wine tonight for it’s fermentation process. This one sounds extra interesting. It’s supposed to be like Frangelico. Time will tell!

And as for the accident!
I have a zoo of pets. A cat(Scooby), dog(Quasi), bunny(Little One) and bird(Loki). Well on Friday little Loki bird had just taken a bath and was all happy and excited about being clean. I had gone into the kitchen and was standing in the doorway when she decided to try and fly to me. Well, half way through she decides she couldn’t make it and tried to land on the couch. Unfortunately Quasi was standing there and he caught her in hie mouth! I saw the whole thing happening and was screaming “NO! NO! Quasi! Shit!” I grabbed him and opened his mouth up to get her out and the way she was lying there I thought “oh shit, she’s killed.” But she wasn’t. She went into shock and I wrapped her in a towel and held her. The worst was it was freezing out and snowing and no Avian vets available AND she was soaking wet!! I was sick over it. Well, we decided to see if she could make it through the night, She did, then through the weekend. Took her to the vet on Monday. The vet said she wasn’t in great condition. Maybe internal damage, broken wing and she had a respiratory issue most likely from the injuries. Poor baby! She didn’t want to do anything further until Loki was more stable. Loki is still not near herself and has been regulated to a cat carrier to restrict her movements and has to take two meds, which she doesn’t like, twice a day. I’m hoping she recovers. I’m just sick about it. It’s hard to concentrate on what I should be doing. Anywho, she goes back friday for a recheck. Wish her a speedy recovery!

Well after a few days in my studio, I launched a new line of items on my etsy store! I’m excited about it and am planning on expanding on this line over the next few weeks. I was reminded of posting on here because I was bottling my second batch of mead last night and remembered my first post! The new line is going to consist of notecards, fridge magnets, photo pendents and earrings featuring photo images I took. Here is a sample. If you like what you see check out my Etsy store atwww.etsy.com/shop/gracealleytreasures. As for the mead, well it is awesome! Carbonated and delicious!
