I just canceled my appointment with the dentist. I'm feeling better, but I still hack every now and then and I don't want that happening at the dentist. I'm at day 4 on antibiotics so I don't think I'm contagious anymore.

The guys are boiling sap again this morning. We should have a pretty good crop of syrup this year.

The girls and I were accepted in the Highland Festival show in May. I'm kind of excited - that's a first for us. It seems like we have been doing this a long time, but actually, we are in our 3rd year. We've learned some things, refined some things, and have generally gotten better at what we do. Now that the rains have let up, I need to get downstairs and take stock. Most things are pretty well stocked up, but if we need soap, I have to do them now so they'll have time to cure. I made Country Apple cold process soap last week. It smells wonderful.

Word of the day:
Monday of the Third Week in Lent
Gospel
Lk 4:24-30

Jesus said to the people in the synagogue at Nazareth:
"Amen, I say to you,
no prophet is accepted in his own native place.
Indeed, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel
in the days of Elijah
when the sky was closed for three and a half years
and a severe famine spread over the entire land.
It was to none of these that Elijah was sent,
but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon.
Again, there were many lepers in Israel
during the time of Elisha the prophet;
yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian."
When the people in the synagogue heard this,
they were all filled with fury.
They rose up, drove him out of the town,
and led him to the brow of the hill
on which their town had been built,
to hurl him down headlong.
But he passed through the midst of them and went away.


God bless our troops!
