After a month long absence due to a family emergency, I am finally back! Have missed all my computer friends. Have a whole lot of catching up to do, that's for sure. I sincerely hope that the crises are behind me now and life will take on a more normal pace.
How did everybody make out with the big blizzard of 2010 up here in the Northeast? We lost power for a few days, so a forced R & R break was enjoyed. We haven't had a storm like this is many years, felt like a kid with a snow day. Here's a photo of my back deck and Chloe (my head seamstress) to show what we dealt with.
It is just beautiful though and the full moon on the snow last night was awesome. Has anyone ever enjoyed Cracked Sugar? It's a fun thing to do when you have a big snow. Everyone in the house puts out a bowl to collect some fresh snow. Meanwhile, take some maple syrup (has to be the real deal) and simmer for a while on the stove top, minimum of 15-20 minutes. Bring in your bowl of snow and drizzle the hot syrup over the snow. The maple syrup hardens up and you have instant maple candy, yumm! Little ones love the magic of watching the syrup harden up instantly and particularly eating it! Okay, Here I was, all by myself in the house, and I have to admit that I couldn't resist and did it for myself this snow storm. It was fun! Try it the next time we have a good snow fall.
Have a wonderful week all,
