Not a bad way to spend the day

In 24 hours time James and I collected approximately 20 gallons of maple sap.  Instead of waiting till we were done collecting all the sap and cooking it down at once, we decided to do some a little at a time since we didn't have a giant evaporating pan.  Yesterday was a beautiful day to sit by a fire and watch pots steam.

We didn't begin till Noon so we cooked into the evening hours.  We had dinner by the fire and watched Netflix.  That's how they did it in the olden days right?
We never did finish cooking the 20 + gallons but we have some to put on our waffles tonight.  In the meantime we have lots more sap awaiting our attention.
