Here are a couple of photo's from yesterday at the sugar house.  460 gals. of sap processed.  Things are certainly sweet when the syrup comes in.

Wow. No snow and ice! All froze here  in Michigan. Got lots of snow this last weekend. Maybe you'll get a sugar snow. Nice pics though!

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf🐾

Question .... What is with all the flags on the wires? Just curious. Thanks

Carla i love it when we get snow and i'm drawing syrup.  When you put hot fresh syrup on snow and it crystallizes it is yummy.

Tessa the flags are prayer flags that have faded over the year.  I'll put new ones up soon but i just let them go naturally into the environment.  I started hanging them after my daughter in law suggested them as a warning about low wires for the tractor.  The graveyard where my parents and a son are buried is down wind of the farm so i also feel they carry prayers to them.

I just have grown to love the way they look.  Some colorful and new while others are tattered and bleached by the weather.

 

Hugs,

I wondered about the prayer flags too! It reminded me of a traditional Monday wash here with flags on the line (baby nappies / diapers), but much too small and rare these days as most people use disposable ones. A sensible warning for the tractor as it is easy to forget little things and a wire would be far less noticeable.

 

They are lovely pictures Charlize!

      We hear so much about HRT and surgeries here, but the truth is facial hair removal is by far on the top of my list. If I can ever do one thing about myself physically, it would be that.    Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      I'm such a terrible poet that it would be embarrassing. I did write one thing in that forum, but it came closer to being a psalm that a poem. Oh well.   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      Hi Amy,   I agree with MaryEllen. Your breasts should already be getting sore and I definitely noticed a change in the 4th month. My mom is a C cup and I am a solid B after being on HRT for three years. I am also on Spiro and Estradiol.   Tess

      I have to temper my excitement a bit because what's right for me is not absolutely right for someone else BUT, having MY facial hair removed has been thee absolute best thing I've done throughout my transition!!!  I wish I'd done it before I even knew I'd transition one day.  I wish I'd done it in my early 20's when it would have been easier.  I've spent more out-of-pocket money on laser and electrolysis than any other transition related expense and if I had to choose just one thing to do, facial hair removal is what I'd choose.  It's SUCH a powerful gender cue.  I'm obviously biased but it seems to me like anyone who is AMAB but identifies as anything but male, would thoroughly LOVE not having facial hair.  I wish you the best as you discover and express yourSELF.

      Hello Amy, You should start to see some development within 2-3 months. Perhaps sooner. You may also notice some tenderness too.  It takes a cis girl at least 3 years to achieve full breast growth so you should expect to develop about the same. Nope, they don't burst forth overnight.   The general rule of thumb is that you will end up one cup size smaller than your mother but this isn't etched in stone. Hope this helps.   MaryEllen

      Hello All:   I was just wondering if I can get any average estimate on how long it takes for breast development when on HRT.  I have started taking Spiro and estradiol on January 20th 2018 and just wanted to find out from everyone when they roughly started to develop and when?  I know everyone is different, but a good rough time line would be nice.  I am really hoping for a nice average C cup size.  I know my mother and sister are both C cups and not very big C, but just average.   I am just really looking forward to having real breast instead of always using my breast forms.  On the plus side of things, I have noticed that since I have been on HRT, that I have lost some weight in my mid-section and when stepping on the scale, I am 20 lbs. lighter.   Hope to hear back   Amy

      Me too Bobbi, I’m glad you’re doing well...  It truly is never worth it there’s so much here that we don’t realize until after we’ve given up, as they say hindsight is 2020. After surviving incredible odds after a bad accident and being resuscitated several times I can tell you you would give anything for just one more breath right after you realize what you gave up. I spent nearly 50 days trying to get that one more breath and that was enough for me I can’t imagine having to deal with that again. hugs, Jae

      Yes, I agree it is a bit painful but for me it helps shed light in a place that hasn’t seen it in a long time. hugs, Jae

      Ohhhh... Laughed so hard I got a cramp, I’m in the middle of doing laundry and putting away some bras, what irony, oh wait you’re not supposed to Iron a bra... hugs Jae
