This is what I see when I look outside my window right now. I love how the snow and later the freezing fog clung to every surface it touched. It makes the woods look so much prettier while they wait on being clothed in their pretty spring garb.
Our small town has been having their annual Maple Festival. I had hoped to be able to attend again this year but it's almost over and the way it looks I'll have to wait until next year.
We did have a chance to get some fresh maple syrup which the family has been enjoying on their pancakes. I don't like maple syrup at all, though I wish I did because it always looks so good and almost everyone I know really likes it.
I blame my aversion to it partly because for several years when I was a little girl it was the only option for sweetner my parents used. Every cookie, cake, and pie tasted like maple syrup. Even canning strawberries, peaches and other fruits maple syrup was used instead of sugar. I can taste the awfullness of it just by thinking about it.
Thankfully that phase lasted for only a few years and I have been maple syrup free since then.
There is a big fat fly buzzing clumsily around and around the room. I can't remember where I put our fly swatter and I'm having a hard time trying to ignore it. It's amazing how annoying something so small can be.
I'm celebrating that I have finally caught up on all my email. I appreciate every note I receive from you and apologize to those that had to wait a little longer for a reply.
I have decided to make that leaving anonymous comments is no longer an option. For everyone that read the one yesterday before I deleted it would you join me in praying that God will bless this person with peace and joy that comes only through Him?
