The weather has been warm during the day and below freezing at night.Â On Monday, Mark started tapping our seven trees.Â Adrian likes to check the buckets and said that our best tree has almost filled a half bucket already.
The kids and I are hoping for some more really good snow days.Â We are not quite ready for spring!Â We have not got our fill of snowmen, sledding or hot chocolate this winter.
The last few days have been very cold! I have tried to do frosted bubbles a few times, but it has been too windy. When the wind finally calmed down for a little bit today, we attempted bubbles in a protected spot.
I am so spoiled!Â Allan came home yesterday with a beautiful bouquet of daisies for me.Â He added a unique blue rose as a special surprise.Â Then today, the kids spoiled me by letting me take a break and have some fun taking pictures of the rose.
I have a wonderful family! They do a great job of spoiling me 🙂 .
This morning, we took a nature walk at the park.Â We looked for leaves and pretended we were on a safari.Â We drove around the “game park” looking for animals.Â We discovered deer, turkey, flying geese, chipmunks and lots of squirrels.
She is not super friendly, but she likes to be around the children.Â If they don’t try to hug her too much or pick her up, she will hang around the backyard watching them.
While Adrian learned about bats in class, Audrey and I roamed nearby.Â The fall colors this year are amazing!
