Maple Syrup...I love it and it's all natural! If I haven't mentioned it before I'm a foodie...well, our entire family are foodies. We love to peruse cook books, magazines, Pinterest, we also enjoy gathering in the kitchen to create scrumptious dishes. What follows is the eating...yummmm!
On Friday the mail lady delivered a very special surprise....Vermont Maple Syrup, from our sweet friends. Thank you Ranney Family...what a treat!!!! Their family worked hard to gather the sap and turn it into syrup. They blogged their experience, what a neat process.
We have done a bit of research on tapping trees and watched a few videos of the process. We plan to tag our trees this fall in hopes to tap them next year. We'd love to have fresh maple syrup right from our own trees....that's if we do it right?!?! I'm sure I'll be calling on the Ranney family for advice;)
Now we need to whip up a batch of waffles, drizzle them with yummy Vermont Maple Syrup and savor every bite:)

It seems as of late I have had several meals of crow. You know I'm thinking I should have learned long ago to not say "never"....well, I guess I didn't learn! I haven't had to partake of the whole crow, more like a nibble here and a nibble there, either way it's not tasty! My pallet and stomach are screaming.....
"I hope you have learned your lesson now,
please don't subject us to any more crow!"
Over the course of the past year, we have encountered many changes....
With the change of life seasons, I began to see that one can't live a life of
"I'll Never" !
I boxed myself in by using those words,
which in the end gave me crow to eat~ Yuck!
Where am I today after the crow feast?
I'm grateful for the humbling crow eating experience,
however uncomfortable it was....
I'm different today and I'm happy to be free from the bondage that
"I'll never" placed me in.
