...but in two weeks it will be fall. Today, however, is seems like fall... the wind is blowing, leaves are falling from the trees (it's very dry, we need rain) and I expect it to rain soon. I love the seasons, it seems that God knows when to change them, when I'm tired of the heat and humidity, the cool weather takes over. I look forward to picking apples, but the orchard we went to last September (Rob took a nice photo of me and our girls) doesn't have u-pick this year, I am assuming because of the lack of rain they have a small crop. I will make some phone calls to see if there is another nearby place to pick apples. Last year, I borrowed my mom's Chinoise food strainer that had a wooden pestle (the set is now called "vintage" but she's had it since I was very little) and left the apple skins on when I cooked them, so the applesauce was PINK! It was so good. Rob made a scrumptuous apple pie! And I still have pumpkin pulp from our pumpkins last year, in the freezer, so I will bake something with that well before Thanksgiving. Everyone likes fresh ingredients.
We're going to go outside and play hide-and-seek, before it gets dark. It's 7pm already!
5th week of Great Lent ~ Wednesday - A very quiet day. Snowed most of today. Husband worked from home. I was in bed a lot of today, really wiped out. I don't think I have the flu, just a cold ...
