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.
I just had to add this picture. It is my daughters new baby duck. Don't know if you can notice it but he has a little patch of hair right on the back of his head. It looks like a mohawk. My husband said why do you always get the reject ones. I told him he is not he is cute. I like to get the animals I feel nobody else would want to give a home. Probably he would not of been picked cause he was not the cutest duck there. So he is ours and I love him as much as my daughter does. But the quacking is about to drive me nuts! Hopefully he will settle down after a few days. That is all for today. Hope everyone is well out there. Have a great day and God bless. Rebekah
Hello everyone, Sorry I have not been posting my computer has not been working. Also just not much going on here. We are heading out to the weekly auction today. The guys are out trying to get the manure cleaned up while it is frozen before it turns to water. I have decided to have a giveaway trying to decide which afhganI'm going to giveaway so be watching for it. Probably within the next week I will be posting it. Will share a great desert recipe I have found so easy and not many ingredients always a bonus. Rhubarb Desert 4 C. Diced rhubarb 1 C. sugar 1-3 oz. strawberry jello 1-18 1/2 oz. box yellow cake mix 2 C. water Put ingredients in order given, into a 9x13 pan. DO NOT STIR. Bake at 350% for 50 minutes. Serve with milk or ice cream. This is very good and easy! You can use any combination of fruit and jello to make it different. Have a great day and God bless Rebekah.
