It's apple season!

We picked apples today! They were $22 a bushel, and we plan on eating them, making pies and applesauce.
On a family, I love spending time together.
Andrea and Wally got these magnetic earrings for the girls in Aruba! I remember about 20 years ago (before I got my ears pierced), getting magnetic diamond studs, I think, at Claire's, we showed them to Grandma, who was almost 70. She asked if she could borrow them and wore them to her Bridge Club, in her NOSE. So, her friends thought she got her nose pierced! Grandma Greene was so much fun!
That's the fun box I got from Xenia just yesterday! Those Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are vegan...I'd love that recipe {wink wink}!

What a terrific day!

I used to do that with magnetic earrings too. I'm going to have to remember that for when I'm old and wear purple.
