Lately I have sat and hooked in silence, no TV, phones,Radio, or music
I can hear our grandfather clock ticking and the furnace click on and off but that is it. At first I found it very hard to sit for any length of time in silence ,but it has been getting easier and easier the more I do try to sit in silence. I think it is good for the soul now and then.
As you can tell from the picture above we still have a lot of snow.
but very close to the house, where the dryer vent comes out, I found this growing yeah for green!
I am still working on the dreaded commission rug. I have never pulled out and put in so many times in one rug. GRRRRR I can not
wait for it to be done!
Today husband and I decided to go for a quiet lunch. We got all settled in and about 20 minutes later all these people came in with name tags and posters going up in the windows and bang we are in the middle of a political rally! Now it did not matter who it was or what party they were, we were looking for peace and quiet and a chance to just talk and enjoy the food. And guess where he stood the only door in! Trapped like rats! Finally I asked the bartender for a back door and they showed us out. a couple other people followed us out they were as in shock as we were.
Since we have such a large Easter celebration at our house we start early shopping for all the kids baskets for the big egg hunt. I hit the dollar store and did pretty well. And found these yummm I will not be going back to the dollar store soon as these are like crack I can not stay away from them!.
This morning I got up early and met my daughter and grand daughter for breakfast.A friend of my daughter has a sugar house and it was open house weekend so we wandered over there.
I purchased some syrup and some home made maple cinnamon rolls my treat for Monday morning for going to work.(I bribe myself with treats to go to work)
She also had a scavenger hunt so sweet B and I did that together. She had lots of great questions and B learned a lot about syrup.
So I will close with the one answer I knew. How many gallons of sap produce one gallon of maple syrup?
Have a great week!
