Making Maple Syrup 2014

Spring is a wonderful time of year for many reasons but my favourite is Maple Syrup.  My family has been collecting sap and boiling it to make syrup for a few years now and it is the best.  The fact that everyone is involved and helping makes it taste awesome.  

 This is the 3rd boil of the season, what a beautiful day!!

 Lots of hard work goes into making the Maple Syrup from the cutting and splitting wood for the fire to the tapping of the trees and hauling of the sweet water to the boiling area.

 Shane has become more efficient as this is his 4th season.

Nia:wen to all those who helped, one of my favourite times of year!

TVD's appearance on Context with Lorna Dueck

We were asked to share a dance on an episode of Context with Lorna Dueck.  We were quite happy to do it and my only job was to introduce the Hoop Dance.  When they seated me in the audience and handed me a microphone the poor lady sitting next to me tried in vain to not be in the shot.  Sorry, lady.  

The show is filmed at CBC studios in downtown Toronto.  Derek and I were thrilled to find Mr. Dressup's tree in the hallway. 

Kristen was amazed to find out what happens behind the scenes of a television show. 

We would like to thank producer Sheldon Neil for the opportunity to share our dancing with the audience of Context.
