I have my computer back! It was a minor trouble that brought it down, but it took a few days to set it right.

I will have to work on a new banner picture. The snow is gone now - hurray! Spring is really here. We may get a little bit of snow next week, but I've seen the crocuses, so spring is here.

It's been very mucky with the snow melting slowly over the past two weeks, and rain today. Mucky, mucky, mucky.

We had been planning (although not very hard) to tap into our maples and try our hand at maple syrup this year. This is the time of year to do it, but, alas, we sat on our hands too long and didn't order the equipment. So no maple syrup this year : (

Maybe we won't procrastinate next year.

Aaaw, sorry about the maple syrup, it's one of my favourites.

long time no visit, it's good to catch up and I'm amazed about the book contract. I had no idea there were so many things to look out for.

Hi Yarrow!

Nice of you to pop in. I'll go catch up with you, too. I always enjoy my visits to your blog.

Thanks for popping reminded me to check in on you. You should be heartened by the contract, even though it didn't work out. More will come, and you will become a more skilled negotiator with each one.
I'm liking your new photo...yes, spring is coming.

Hi ricki!

You're right, it is nice to be offered a contract. It's a great confidence booster : )
