Today Natty's Brownie Troop learned how to make maple syrup at Westmoreland Sanctuary. They got to see the process starting from tree tapping to cooking it up.
They got to taste real sap from a Maple tree. To quote one little girl..."that was the most disgusting thing ever!" LOL!!!!
They even had a blind taste taste where they had to choose which one was real maple syrup and which one was the imitation kind you buy at the grocery sore. Which I learned was actually made out of corn syrup. I gotta start reading my labels more carefully, I guess we'll be using Vermont Pure Maple Syrup as soon as I'm done with my bottle of Aunt Jemima. LOL!!!!!!
FUN stuff. I got some seriously CUTE pictures too. My favorite one isn't even about the event. It's of one of the Brownie's little sister....Sweet Lily up top. Look at that face!?!?! :)
I've been busy. A little too busy. So busy that I left my car running in the Mickey D's parking lot while Dylan and I ate lunch for 25 minutes!!! :O I think I'm cracking up!! LOL!!
And the fun didn't end there. The next morning I go to work with no purse. Normally that would not be a big deal but it is when you are on E from having left the car running for 25 minutes the day before!!!! :O
But, not too busy to scrap a little bit. Sweet Irene had the great idea to have an Inpiration Gallery over at DML today. So, a bunch of us created some new projects to share. Check it out. They are FUN! :) www.downmemorylanneco.com
And, I just finished clearing out Natty's room because her new carpet is coming tomorrow afternoon. Yippeeeeeee!!! She is so excited! Her solid panels are coming early next week. With just a few minor finishing touches, her room should be complete berfore we leave for FLA!!!!!!! :D
I managed to throw out 3 hefty bags of stuff from her room. I so love purging!!! It is good for the soul. The only problem is now I want to tackle another room. It's seriously contagious. LOL!
I'm in the market for a slim compact but good digi camera to take with me to Disney and other attractions. My Digi SLR is just to much for those types of trips. I took it to Seaworld and it was a pain in the bum. I had to lock it up before every water ride. I'm not doing that at Disney. No way.
So, I've been asking around and doing some reasearch. Then I came across this article. Thought it might be helpful to some of you.
