Long Hiatus

It’s been quite a while since I’ve had a free moment to post up any photos here. I’m not really sure what’s been keeping me so busy, but it seemed like February and March were packed full of work and activities, not leaving much time for idle internet surfing or photo uploading.

Two weeks ago we went up “north” to my parents’ homestead for the weekend. The goal was to tap the maple trees(for those of you who don’t know what that is, feel free to ask), with all of the family together. We got MOST of the family together, and had a nice weekend spent in the woods tromping through snow that was up to our knees(and, in the case of the shorter family members, hips).
I was reminded of all of the springs when I was a kid that I kind of resented the hard work and effort that goes into syruping. Back then it didn’t make much sense to me, we could have always just gone to the store and bought it… but now that I’m older, there’s an appreciation when we eat it on pancakes or over ice cream, that I was part of that, and my hard work resulted in a very sweet reward.

Anyway, new photos soon, it’s good to be back a’bubblin.
