Life on the farm was the way of life for Wasylina; she was up before sunrise and worked until dust. Chores to be done; tending to her large garden; days were never long enough for Wasylina. She was never afraid of heights in her younger years she painted the roof on the hip barn and on their two story home. When one visited Wasylina, you never left hungry…little wine…
