Maple Syrup Bounty

It is funny how things work out.  I had been feeling disappointed (and a bit pouty) at not being able to go to a much anticipated quilt retreat this weekend.  Hubby's limitations made it impossible to leave him alone so I knew I was making the right decision but was still not happy.  Last night, I got a phone call from my son saying he was in the hospital with pneumonia in one lung and possibly another problem.  I can't be there unless there was an emergency but by being at home I can get there quickly.
Prayers for his recovery as well as peace and comfort for my daughter in law would be appreciated.
Our friends have spent another day here boiling sap and it looks as though we are going to have a good amount.  Hubby thought we wouldn't have any this year.  I am so thankful to these two men for their help. We will be giving them some of the syrup but that isn't much of a thank you for all their work.

There is still lots of time to enter my fabric draw.  Leave a comment at the end of this blog or on my ArkAngel Creations Facebook page.



  1. Wishes of good health for your husband and your son. Hope the maple syrup all turns out great, I love real maple syrup and I'm sure your helpers do as well.
    Hope you get lots of response for the free fabric although I would love to win 😉

  2. Prayers going out for your son and his family. I didn't think there would be any syrup this year as the weather was so unpredictable.
