Yesterday, the temps were warm and the sap was running. I caught a little spring fever, threw open a window for some fresh air and proceeded to tackle washing the windows inside and out. I ventured out in gym shorts and Muck boots to check the sap containers. It was so refreshing.
Oh, if only my legs were as long as they appear in this late day shadow!
Today, I headed out without a coat to tend the critters and about froze my tush off. What a difference a day makes!
Longing for spring!
