I woke up this morning to find that back door was blown open. It was mighty chilly in the laundry room. I see by the paper that the Shepherd Sugar Bush has been out to the woods. That means that when you drive through Shepherd, you will see the twin buckets attached to every tree. Harold and Howard spent yesterday out in the woods. The temp is 53 degress right now which means the sap has been running all night. The sugar house will be busy tonight.

I have mass this morning with the school kids. Today is one of my bigger groups - 5 kids. Since there was no mass last week, today's music is new to them since it is the seasonal music for Lent.

I have some Ebay orders to fill today. Yesterday I started working on inventory for the Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival. It's always hard to decide which scents we will limit ourselves to. I was working on Candy Apple room sprays yesterday. We've also decided to do the Alma Highland Festival. That show will probably be limited to just our mixes because we will only be using one space - our 10x10 tent.

Word of the day:
Friday of the First Week in Lent
Gospel
Mt 5:20-26


Jesus said to his disciples:
"I tell you,
unless your righteousness surpasses that
of the scribes and Pharisees,
you will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

"You have heard that it was said to your ancestors,
You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.
But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother
will be liable to judgment,
and whoever says to his brother, Raqa,
will be answerable to the Sanhedrin,
and whoever says, 'You fool,' will be liable to fiery Gehenna.
Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar,
and there recall that your brother
has anything against you,
leave your gift there at the altar,
go first and be reconciled with your brother,
and then come and offer your gift.
Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court.
Otherwise your opponent will hand you over to the judge,
and the judge will hand you over to the guard,
and you will be thrown into prison.
Amen, I say to you,
you will not be released until you have paid the last penny."

God bless our troops!

I have never had real maple syrup...but I have heard it is better than the fake store bought!
I also heard it is hard work...but I bet it is very fulfilling!

It is totally different from store bought. That stuff is basically corn syrup with flavoring. Maple syrup is something you really need to experience. You can find it in the store, but make sure it is pure maple syrup. There's nothing better!!
