Sunday, March 8, 2009

It's 30 degrees out this morning, but it feels a lot colder. As I walked by the woods, I was checking out the sap lines. The entire woods is flooded. I don't know how the guys get back there to do anything. Harold said they might be boiling tonight.

I can't believe that this year has gone by so fast. I have a lot to do between now and the syrup festival.

I finished Clairy-bear's quilt last night. I think she's pretty happy with it. This picture was taken before I was finished. I will be giving it to her soon.

Word of the day:
Second Sunday of Lent
Mk 9:2-10

Jesus took Peter, James, and John
and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them,
and his clothes became dazzling white,
such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.
Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses,
and they were conversing with Jesus.
Then Peter said to Jesus in reply,
"Rabbi, it is good that we are here!
Let us make three tents:
one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified.
Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them;
from the cloud came a voice,
"This is my beloved Son. Listen to him."
Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone
but Jesus alone with them.

As they were coming down from the mountain,
he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone,
except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
So they kept the matter to themselves,
questioning what rising from the dead meant.

God bless our troops!

First of all, Sue, I still owe you a dollar. I keep losing your address.

Shepherd, Michigan is known as the "sweetest little town around." Every year the trees that line the streets of the village are tapped and they all have twin buckets on them. Shepherd has its own Sugar Bush. Every year, after the sap season, Shepherd has a festival where people come from miles around to buy maple syrup and eat pancakes with syrup. It's a very big deal. The girls and I have a booth with our stuff. We can't sell the syrup because we would be competing with the town. Last year our barn burned down and we took all of our sap to Shepherd where they bought it from us.
