Carhartt coveralls,  a spring must.  Found this pair on accident at a thrift shop, I'm not sure what we would have done without them.  The boys have been outside much much more these days.  I'm starting to feel OK with the fact that we're not that into winter outdoor play, so we're making up for lost time. 

Spotted the first snowdrops in my yard today, thrilling.

At my in-laws place, a majestic crumbly old barn.  I feel like a kid again exploring each corner, looking for treasure but finding a surly barn cat. 

Sap, hoping to get lots of it.  It's our first try at collecting maple sap from our yard & across the street.  Feeling very optimistic that we may get 1 gallon of our own syrup. 

but that would mean that we would need 30 gallons to boil down.    maybe we should change it to a 12 oz. jar?

chickens scratching up the yard, unearthing our spring for us.  Hope you're having a good spring-ish week.
