Hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and for those that brave the Black Friday shopping crowds, got lots of holiday deals for gift giving.  After prepping our decorations for the wreaths in October, Mom and I started decorating Brian’s freshly made wreaths yesterday.  It’s always a treat put the wreaths together and see the decorations look so fun and festive.  The designs are a mix, as usual, of forest friends, Williamsburg-ish, glittery and holiday fun with elves and Santas.  Most will last right through February or March (unless hung in a southern exposure).  Even indoors they will hold their needles and last for months.  Come join us for the Open House on December 3rd 9am to 4pm and December 4th 10am to 4pm.

Additionally holiday hours for December will be Saturday and Sunday 10 to 4pm for the following dates: Dec 10th, 11th, 17th, & 18th.

This week is turning out to be a challenge for us.  Brian was out collecting yesterday when his truck died out in a field with a hundred gallons of sap in the back.  He then had to call for a tow to the repair shop.  Unfortunately since he needed to get the collecting tank out of the truck for the repairs to be made, he had to dump the sap he had.  Fortunately our friend Darrel was around and able to put the tank in the back of his truck and he and Brian were able to collect more sap.  If all goes well the truck will be fixed today and back in service.  Maybe we need to think about a new truck. lol

We will be open and boiling both days this weekend from 12 to 4pm.  And we will have maple cones on sale again starting this weekend.

It was a pretty good day for sugaring today.  The sun warmed things up well enough to get the trees going again.  The last 2 days the weather was close to the right temperature but not quite warm enough.  So come watch us boiling on Sunday afternoon from 12pm to 4pm.  The driveway and yard are dirt, therefore muddy in this weather so make sure your footwear is appropriate.

Today was truly enjoyable for this time of year.  That was the comment from almost everyone who dropped by today.  There are still wreaths and swags and kissing balls to pick from s well as all your favorite maple goodies.  The shop will be open Sunday from 10am to 4pm and we’ll have holiday hours the next 2 weekends as well.   12-4pm each weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving to All.  

We are looking forward to having almost all the family here for Thanksgiving tomorrow.  It will be great compared to last year when we had to run the generator to get dinner cooked.  Thank heavens for crock pots.  Even at that we had to borrow an oven at my daughter’s in-laws to bake the traditional bread pudding for dessert.  Our family can forgive no turkey on Thanksgiving but not my great-grandmothers bread pudding.  Hope you all have a warm and happy holiday with your family and friends.

The upcoming week will see us busy making candy and cream for the open house along with putting together some gift baskets for your holiday giving.  Brian will continue to make wreaths and we will be getting those all decorated too for the weekend event.  Hours will be:

Dec 5th 9am to 4pm  &  Dec 6th 10am to 4pm

Looks like the balmy fall weather has left us and we are back to more seasonal stuff.  The wind was wicked and cold today.  Things are falling into the normal rhythm for us at this time of year.  Brian made his first trip north to cut greens for our wreaths and has begun the assembly process.  Mom and I have been working on the designs we’ll use on the fresh wreaths starting Thanksgiving weekend.  See a sneak peek of one happy face we’ll have looking for a holiday home.  Of course we’ll  have ones with sparkle, animals and more natural flavors as usual.

For those of you who are on our mailing lists, the postcards and emails will go out this week.  Our Open House is Dec. 5th and 6th.  Hours 9 – 4 Sat and 10- 4 on Sunday.  The sugarhouse will be open the next 3 weekends in Dec on Sat & Sun from 11-4pm.  Or call ahead to arrange another time if necessary.  603-370-0908.

 

Looking for good home.
