What's been happening since we've been home.  If you haven't guessed already from all my previous posts, Mr. and I went away for a bit.  We spent part of the winter down in Texas, and we had a WONDERFUL time.

Not long after we got home the sap started to run and we went from arriving home with snow on the ground to no snow to a sugar snow/ice storm.  We did hunker down and waited the ice storm out, and luckily it was over in time for us to head to Madison to a Salmon Slam party where we were able to sample salmon and cod that was caught in the waters off of Alaska.  We bought some king salmon filets and Mr. cooked some up and it was every bit as good as we had hoped it would be.

We have the local 4H club coming this weekend to tour our sugaring operation, and we bottled up some sample bottles for the kids to take home with them, and it looks like it's going to be a great week for the sap to be running :)

We have been fighting sickness for about 5 weeks off and on, and getting back home I caught some kind of sickness that just knocked me for a loop, and Mr. was always a step behind me in getting it all but just not as hard.  Crossing fingers we are all done with that.

It feels good to be walking the hills again when I can which always depends on the weather.  My sometimes walking partner came with me the other day.  She's getting old and not as spry as she used to be.  Sadie is going to be 10 at the end of the year and not sure how many more years she'll be with us, she's been just a wonderful dog to us.

So that's a bit of what's been going on around here.  I do seem to post a lot more photos on Instagram so if you follow me there sorry for any repeats of photos.

Taking a photo of Mr taking a photo of a crab moving in the shallow water.  I'm sorry to say that I did jinx the Packers by buying Packer colored yarn...sorry Packer fans. Our life here down on the island is coming to an end and we'll be heading back to the cold snowy weather, awe poor us you're thinking right (LOL).  We really enjoyed ourselves down here, especially getting to see the kids and grandkids, and I will miss them immensely.
