***Outside my window…It was actually spring-like over the weekend, but today is cold, and blustery, and just…ugh.
***Barn & garden happenings…We are still boiling sap into syrup as the weather allows. We went through tons of it today. It is really a pretty low-maintenance activity once you get into it, especially since we do it on the grill instead of with a wood fire. The two older kids and I take turns adding new sap to the boiling pan throughout the day and then we bring it in at night for the final boil down.
***Reading and watching… We started watching The Two Towers (LOTR) this week with the older three. It’ll take us two nights to get through it! Likewise, we started watching Water for Elephants without the kids, but I had to go to bed half-way through. I kind of miss having the energy to watch a whole movie in one sitting!
***A few plans for the week ahead…A party for James, hopefully a field trip if the weather gets better by the week’s end, boiling more sap, and maybe picking up our new (to us!) car.
***And finally, a goat photo….I only wish all three had posed!
Have a wonderful week!
