My new niece.
My beautiful trio of girls.

Well as you all see I was not able to get picture posted of our maple syrup operation. The time was so short this year. We only had a week of collecting sap this year. It got warm so fast and at night also that the trees just were not running. We tapped last Saturday and pulled them by Thursday. So it was a very busy week of doing syrup and other miscellaneous farm things. It seemed like the week had just begun and was already gone. I had my nieces again starting last week and oh it was so fun. The baby is so sweet and cute. her sister is just as cute and the stuff she says just cracks us up. The other day my husband told her he was taking her with him and she says my butt's not going nowhere. We have lots of mud here and I sure wish it would dry up. The animals are not liking it. Hard to work in also. They are saying we are going to get snow at the end of the month I sure hope they are wrong. We weighed the kids fair steer in Saturday and it all went well. My sons steer he is taking weighs 898 so that is a good start. The funny thing is our friends daughter who does it hers weighed exactly the same. My daughters weighed 682 so they both got a good start. We are off to a better start than last year. They are actually halter broke and walking somewhat. This time last year we could not have done that with my sons steer. I will be posting the giveaway soon so be watching just having a hard time deciding on what to give this time. Well that is about all for now. I will leave you with a neat little saying on the back of our bulletin.
When the day is done, do you lie in bed with the next hundred chores running through your head? Ever told your child, "well do it tomorrow." And in your haste not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch? Let a good friendship die? Just call to say Hi? When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift...thrown away...Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.


  1. Sounds like you've had a busy week. Making maple syrup sounds very exciting and yummy! My Dad makes sorgum molasses in the fall. We all get together to press the sorgum cane and cook down the juice into the wonderful molasses.

    I really like the saying on your bulletin. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Yes I agree even here in the city the mud is just a whole darn season onto itself! Those children are adorable give the 2 biggest one a cookie for me :)


I would love to hear from my readers so please feel free to leave me a comment. Rebekah
