Sure been Quiet here on the Blog !
Morning gang..... it's been very quiet on the Blog because we as a family have been too busy and Ali's on vacation from school, very had to get near our family computer. Seems in the last couple of weeks we have been down to Long Island more then we are here in the North Country. We had Nicole's Wedding , and last weekend was a combined visit for Ali with her Dad, Easter with my Brother In law, Clint & Joanne. Thanks Guys for opening up you house to our clan...Joanne hosted about 15 of us I think in total for Easter dinner. Jen & I did Easter Mass at her Families Church ( Church of her Parents and Aunt and Uncles ) which is Dutch Reformed In Manhasset , NY. Very Nice church and it was Good to see some family. After church they had a Easter egg Hunt for all the kids on the church grounds. Doors of the church burst open and the front lawn and Cemetery flooded with children hunting the elusive bunny egg. The Bunny Now lays Plastic eggs fill with chocolate......, Hope Ya Know. I Helped Joanne with Easter dinner and whipped up a Lasagna, She made everything else that complimented her tasty ham. Thanks again! We returned home on Monday afternoon , Picked up our three dogs from the kennel and Headed to an early bed time as we have not recovered from the past two weekends. Spring temperatures have arrived here in the Adirondacks , at least our southern part of it in Caroga Lake. Our Grass in some spots have turned green and other shaded spots still have snow. Temps in the upper 50's and hitting (They say) about 61, we have sunny sky's and Long Island it is raining. We are doing as all of us do in spring time getting the yard cleaned up, Raking and putting out garbage from the yard. I'm thinking today we are going to lay in the new food garden with our borrowed Roto Tiller. We will see how long I last as I seem to take on too much. The Pasture has also started to take on a green look and we will wait and see if all the seed we put down took . The power companies tree trimming trucks have been working down the road trimming back branches to help keep the power on . Speaking to the neighbors , very mixed feelings about tree trimming, Property owners have very strong opions about their trees. I'll leave it at that and hope that by the time the job is completed no one gets hurt. Stopped by Dave's house and he has been getting what appears to be a good flow of sap in the last few days...scored some Maple Syrup. Thanks Dave...heard Fred was up doing some boiling for Dave as the flow that good. ( Fred maker of wood burning wood stove). Well Gang thats all thats all to report of Substance or No Substance. Time to get to our retired Butts to work, You know , raking, hitting the dump, turning over the garden, walking the dogs and attempting to keep the tree trimming guys from gettin hurt. Till next time Gang..........Jerry (I'm sure Jen will post soon and give ya somthing other then this chicken tapping at a key board)
