Is anyone still here? I didn’t abandon you, I swear!
& I wouldn’t blame you if you’d abandoned me.
Between illnesses, traveling, working and life, Visitors have been neglected.
We’ve explored Amsterdam, tiptoed through tulips and back again.
I’ve been getting back into a groove though. The sun is shining, warming our skin and seeds are sprouting. This year’s pending bounty is creating an itch to eat fresh from the Earth and the sap has been running again:
Just before March Break, we were prompted by our bathroom demo and perfect weather to flee our house and go to the cottage. My Grandparents are still up there enjoying the Great White outdoors and thankfully they are more than willing to have us freeload for a few warm meals, which I am more than happy to accommodate for!
My Grandfather, who taught my kids the in’s and outs of winter tree identification and the love of maple syrup, encouraged us to get at it again, tapping the trees for their yearly elixir.
Being up their is just what we all needed. Relaxed, we’ve returned to a dusty house and ready for renewal.
Cooking is what makes me happy, and I’m so ready to start sharing again.
