Dave began a five night stretch of work on Saturday. He called home to tell me  “I just realized that I’ve left you with 93 lambs in the barn, 180 taps in maple trees, 60,000 bees in boxes and a couple of assorted goats.” I think he was feeling guilty. I may have been feeling overwhelmed.

This morning, Jenny and I settled a new mom and her lamb in the barn; Edgar, Jenny and I collected 70 gallons of sap (in a beautiful snowstorm), and Dave came home for a couple of hours so that we could put the bees in their hives. That is a good day’s work (with a little help from our friends).
