    Right now, I don't have the time to go canoeing. Wish I did, especially since it's starting to get cooler. It doesn't help that the truck isn't running, so I couldn't go even if I had the time.

    Callie has been going w/me since I first got her. She really wants to get out at times. This year, she didn't jump out any, last year, she did.

    I have a canoe, my friends have kayaks, so we go kaynoeing. I can't sit in a kayak due to injuries from a car accident. And, since I take my dog, Callie, w/me, it's probably better that I use a canoe! She loves to go.

    Tapping trees for Syrup

    If you don't know your trees, it's an easy enough mistake to make. The leaves of a sweet gum are similar to a maple. But, the branching pattern is different, and the sweet gum has a prickly ball for a seed pod.

    Tapping trees for Syrup

    Just a little tip for making maple syrup, make sure the trees you're tapping are actually maple! I was talking w/someone a few years ago that tried to make syrup, and had no luck. I looked at the trees. They weren't maple-they were sweet gum.

    The pit is done and most of my fence! I was able to go kaynoeing last week, and hope to be able to go next week as well.

    I'm starting to get more free time. I may actually be able to start getting on my computer every day!

    I have a gopro and could never get it to tape for more than 3 minutes at a time. I gave up on it.

    I was videoing some turtles on a log and hit it w/the paddle. So, no more videoing while I'm canoeing unless I can come up w/a way to secure the phone. I do get ones that are waterproof. So, if I had been able to find it, it would have probably been OK.

    Haven't really been on lately, been too busy. But, I'm working on pen #3. I should be done it by next week! I have some videos on my YouTube channel, Dizzy's Doings, but wasn't able to put all of them on there. I was canoeing at the beginning of the month, and my phone decided to go...

    And, I started on pen #2 today! I got all the staples pulled on the fencing-it's tied in place, got the netting down from overhead, took apart most of the broody house and pull up hardware cloth from most of the broody pen. I'll be getting posts pulled out tomorrow.

    At this point in time, I can't remember what the weathers like from one day to the next! I did finish the first pen, but haven't started the 2nd. I didn't finish it until Monday. I am quite happy w/how it came out.

    Amen to that. They're calling for rain tomorrow. I plan on getting to the farm early so I can get as much done to the pen as I can. I can't believe how long this is taking. I'm hoping the other 2 pens won't take as long since I'll have a better idea as to what I'm doing.
