………..

who isn’t enjoying the extra sunlight at the end of the day? last week i went on a 5 o’clock sunset walk and soaked in all that golden light. the sky didn’t turn pink like i hoped, but the woods still had a lovely warm glow. it was warm outside that day, in the upper 40s, but by the end of my walk my hands were pretty frozen. winter is still all around. yesterday i volunteered at a sugar house (an educational one – not a commercial one) and learned alllll about how maple sugar is produced. it’s funny, being from new england you’d think i’d have known more by now, but i learned a lot. sadly, i didn’t have my camera with me to document the day. it’s surprisingly cold in a sugar shack because all the heat is directed into the boiling of sap. but i did see sunshine, old maples, and sampled a fair share of the grade b good stuff from 2011. apparently there’s more snow coming this week?! at least it will keep the ticks away longer. ;)
