Happy Friday Everyone! April is here and that means spring is right around the corner.......well, it's supposed to be anyway! True to fashion, Michigan weather is quite unpredictable and we've been getting more snow the past couple of days. Even though I am quite anxious for sunshine and green grass, I had to admit that the snow covered trees were so beautiful as I looked out the windows this morning!
We've still got our taps out and it looks like after a bit of sunshine yesterday, our buckets are full enough to get the stoves started up and running again today. It sure takes a lot of effort to boil down maple syrup! David has spent many hours and late nights the past couple of weeks keeping the stoves going -- not to mention cutting the wood, cleaning pans and filtering the finished syrup -- but boy, I am so thankful when we get to enjoy some delicious maple syrup!! The children enjoy helping too, and it's been fun to all work together on it. I'm pretty sure it tastes 100 times better when you've made it yourself! :) We now have some bottled and in the store, so if you get the hankering to enjoy some pancakes on this snowy April morning, stop on by and we'll send you home with some!!
