March Break started early for Owen. We brought him home Wednesday with the intent of starting our maple syrup production on Thursday. Owen wants to take a bottle back for his teacher and class to sample. Unfortunately the weather didn't co-operate. Winter has returned and we now have a new foot of wet snow on everything.
We had this Lego kit just in case we had a rainy day; we got a snow day instead and Owen was glad to have something new to put together.
Today we will help Owen drill a few trees and put out the buckets. Saturday is to be sunny and above freezing; the sap should flow.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
