Girl on the Go: Making Maple Syrup

Hey, Hey, it’s Friday!

If you recall, last week I started my Girl on the Go list, aka the bucket list. Last week, I started my list with making soap. I signed up for this class on April 3rd. The owner of  Simple Soaps for Simple Folks offers classes on a regular basis. More details to come…

Today, I have another easy task to add to my list. It’s so easy that I am going to accomplish this on Saturday. I am traveling to Whitewater State Park Saturday afternoon to make maple syrup. The DNR hosts a variety of classes at Whitewater State Park during the week, and this weekend it’s all about making maple syrup.

I have been wanting to do this for a while, but haven’t had the chance. When my editor contacted me and asked if I would cover this event for the newspaper, I was ecstatic!

 Has anyone made maple syrup before?

Have a fantastic weekend! I am taking the day off from my blog on Saturday, but I’ll be back on Sunday with a haiku created with a prompt from Haiku Horizons. I’ll also have a few tidbits from my maple syrup making excursion.
