Not much sap then OMG!

     For the past couple days the trees have been slow.  It went to freezing at night, then only low forties during the day.  Sunny, but still cool.  So today at 3 pm I checked jugs.  I didn't have more than two gallons from five trees in 24 hours.  Checked at 5:30 pm - another GALLON!  What's up, trees!  You sure have started flowing.  So I am boiling down what I have on the kitchen stove top and expect tomarrow to be a busy day boiling. I will be tethered to the kitchen.  It's okay, though.  I am reworking a novel that I wrote.
     I am a slow typist - eight words a minute - and spent the past week boiling sap and retyping this novel from hard copy onto my computer so that it could be saved in cyberspace as well as edited in Word.
     Multi-tasking.  If I must be tethered to the kitchen, I might as well be productive.  I'll let you know how it goes with the novel as well as with the syrup.  The novel has nothing to do with making maple syrup.
