Rushing Spring

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!

    What is really depressing is how the weather is a bit better and it’s getting bright in the morning and then we set the darn clocks ahead and it’s getting up in the dark again.
