Counting Down to Surgery - 3

 3 full days before surgery.

I picked up the meds I'll need after the surgery on Sunday after church.  I didn't want to have to wait until after the surgery to get them.  I'll just want to get home afterward.


Maple sugaring season is coming to an end.  We stopped by Mac's Maple in Plainfield, NH to do a taste test.  Yum!  We tasted fresh maple syrup and some aged in bourbon barrels.

We could smell sugar in the air.  That's steam coming from the sugar house.

Here's their large reverse osmosis machine that removes water from the sap before boiling thus speeding up the syrup production and reducing the amount of time and wood you need to make syrup.

As we were leaving more sap was arriving.
