Life, back here in the bush,  is quiet this time of the year. We've had some warm days and some folks have started collecting maple sap but we will wait a few more weeks until Owen can come and help.

In the meantime I'm trying to get ready to start work on our trailer modifications once the warm weather arrives for good.

Yesterday I found these in my workshop. They are drawer glides I bought at least 35 years ago when we first talked about renovating our kitchen back in Brampton. They will come in handy when I start building the cabinets for the trailer.

One of the local families holds a vintage snowmobile rally every year.

I would guess that the machine seen above is close to 50 years old, and still going strong. Of course today's machine are faster, smoother and have heated seats.

We love elderberries. Mary makes juice and pies from them and we pick them wild up here.

We would like to have our own elderberry patch so last week we went out and cut some young shoots in the hopes that we can get them to root down by our pond this spring.

Still need to be careful when driving. Our snow may be disappearing but we often get freezing rain now. This would be an expensive slide off the road.

Drive carefully everyone and thanks for stopping by.
