We finished up our sugaring season this week. The temps are just getting too warm at night and the ants have found our taps. Not to mention I may or may not have set my sweatpants on fire one day trying to get the evaporator going. No worries, I am fine! We have boiled over a hundred gallons from just our three trees and should end up with just over two gallons of finish maple syrup for the year.
We also have added a couple new members to our flock this week. I love baby chicks! Instead of hatching this year we just hit the feed store for our new friends.
So what made me smile this week?
|Duck snuggles with Mr. Bill. He was less then |
thrilled, but he took it like a man.
|"The pool isn't open yet?!?!" Baby Girl made herself at home |
in the sandbox lid with some melted snow at bath time.
|I love watching the fire and the smell of burning wood. |
Here is to another season of sugaring in the books!
|Thank you Buffy and Ester for breakfast. Nothing like fresh eggs!|
|The joys of childhood, the littlest country kid |
and his new BFF, an inch worm.
|Grumpy Goldie, doing what Grumpy Goldie does, patrolling |
the yard and keeping order, like the good alpha hen she is.
|New found friendships. The oldest country kid spending |
quality time with Fifi our new Light Brahma chick.
|Baby chick. How can you not smile?|
|He was a tough competitor at farm tic tac toe. Oh who am I kidding, |
he took all the barns and tractors and wouldn't let me play.
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
