More snow is coming.  Six to eight inches of wet snow tomorrow into tomorrow night, clearing out sometime Sunday.  Today we saw a lot of people in the woods setting up tubing for making maple syrup.  When I was doing it I usually started the end of February.  There were times in late January when we would have a good thaw and could get going then.  I will be glad to start doing syrup again in 2014.  No more hauling buckets all tubing now.


Now I will have to figure out what to do with these syrup pails.  I have already used some as trash cans.

Tea’s Game.

The boys and I went to the game on Wednesday night.  It was another good game against some good players, but in the end Belchertown won again.  They are going to be in the finals.  Tea scored 12 points in the game.

Chris and Ricky

They have been here since Monday and we have gotten a lot accomplished.  I have my first item on ETSY and still working making the farm page inviting.  Ricky finished painting my diningroom and Chris has been cleaning the barn.  Today we will do more computer work and barn cleaning and hopefully some inventory.  I hope to get the cat toys on etsy and maybe one more item.


We had to stop by the vets to pick up Sammy’s medication and one of the animals that lives there loves Chris.  This dog is the greeter for the clinic and only has three legs.  He is a  happy dog and is unaware of his disability.

Pine Hill Orchard is now selling things from the Crafts of Colrain so today I brought up some Herbal Salve.  I will slowly be bringing items there.  This is ski season up north and many skiers hit Pine Hill on their way home.


Marley is enjoying the sun from the upper barn window.

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.                 Carole
