WHATEVER, ETC.

So, apparently spring happened this week.  Theo and I have taken to eating strawberries in the afternoon sun every day.  Lots of digging in the dirt, picking flowers, and “let’s walk around together, Mummy.”  Bliss.

Our apple trees are finally budding.

This poor beautiful bird crashed into one of our windows.

The new deck railing project is underway!  It’s going to be good.  More later.

I ordered these totally practical shoes online and wore them for about seven minutes.

HOW TO MAKE MAPLE SYRUP

Winter felt like a bit of a bust this year.  Chris had an injured back and Theo was still just a tad too little to take advantage of stomping around in the snow, so we spent a lot of time indoors.

March perked us up, though.  It was time to finally milk this ‘country living’ thing for all it was worth.  It was SYRUP TIME.
