Another day…

…closer to spring. It felt like spring here today. We had sunshine and temperatures in the 50’s…was just lovely. The grandchildren were outside playing without coats. I even went outside a few times without mine on.. Smile  Tomorrow is to be in the 60’s, so I won’t be surprised if at least one of the grandchildren is outside barefooted. Their thermostats don’t work quite like mine does.

Finished off 7 more pints of maple syrup. The sap was running today, so they collected more this afternoon. Garry says they should be able to collect more tomorrow, then that will probably be it for this year. If I understand correctly, the nights have to be freezing or below, then warm up to 40F or so to cause the sap to flow.

Sunee, my husband wrote about maple syrup on his blog. That might help answer some of your questions. I’m wondering, are there maple trees in NM? I don’t remember seeing very many when we lived in CA, plus the weather there wouldn’t have been conducive to sap flowing like it does here. We’ve only done this within the past 5 years.

Since I’m already talking about syrup. That sweet husband of mine offered to make pancakes tonight. Of course, I took him up on it. Smile  So we had buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup from this year. Now that was some good eating.

I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one having problems with alerts. Not that I’m happy we aren’t getting them, it just means I didn’t mess up. It’s sad that the changes make it harder to keep up with each other. Have to wonder who, if anyone, they (the changes) benefited. Oh, well…..
