The girls wait for dinner

The girls wait for dinner

February 3, 2013

Today was a repeat of the last few. It’s cold and snowy. Plain old winter and as much as I like it, I found plenty of reasons to stay inside today. I even snuck in a nap:o

My list is growing again, mostly because I took time to make one. The sugarhouse preparation gets top billing. I will help cut my son some more firewood, but mostly I’ll keep working , making ready for maple syrup time.

The spiles have all been washed and sanitized. The bags are ready to hang. The easy stuff has been cleaned in the sugarhouse. I need one whole day, lots of hot water and a little ambition and I can be ready. If the weather works out, we will tap next week and start our season.

I spent part of a day last Saturday visiting my friend Marvin and his family. They too are anticipating the upcoming season. We sat around the shop stove sharing conversation while we watched the snow fall outside from the window. All of us are like runners in the starting blocks, excited and just about to be off and running!
