Early last week the weather was so nice. Day time temps. were in the 5C to 10C ranged, it really felt like spring. We headed out and tapped our best maple tree. Over the next few days we collected enough sap to cook down to 1 1/1 pints or so of maple syrup. Yummy!! We’ve been enjoying it on French toast quite a bit.
Unfortunately the nice weather didn’t last to long, it’s been feeling more like January lately. Today we’ve had very strong winds from the east. Normally you can’t hear the wind howling in the house but today you sure could. It’s a icky mess of snow and ice pellets outside right now. It looks like it will be like this all week. BUT if they are right, starting this weekend it will warm up again and be lovely next week. I hope so, we are so ready for spring! Also the sap will start to run again!
Last week was our spring break and hubby took it as holidays as well. So we had a great week for R&R, we had lots of time to help Mickey our new pup settle in. He’s doing very well, but still can’t figure out why the cat’s don’t want to play with him. One of them wants to but isn’t quite sure about him yet.
