With the crazy weather this year, we were not sure if we would get enough sap from our trees to boil down for this year’s syrup. However, a friend offered us what he did not need. We were able to make enough syrup from our trees and, with what he shared, we had enough to make a little maple sugar also!
While grocery shopping, I discovered nuts on sale for $.99 a pound. I bought a few bags of almonds and hazelnuts for us to enjoy. Just for fun, we decided to make home made Nutella. It was super easy, once the nuts were cracked, and better than store bought!
When I went shopping a week later, I bought the remaining two bags of hazelnuts. Maybe this batch will be shared a little better with the whole family.
We were asked if we would please help Daddy’s band. They are playing “What’s Up at the Symphony”, and wanted a Bugs Bunny in a few of the concerts. However, they got “Harvey” instead.
Today the kids went to a retirement home and helped make people smile. They enjoyed the chance to be silly and loved interacting with some of the residents.
