And check out our litttle apple tree!! It's overloaded with apples, and we've already picked a bunch! I suppose if I was a good little 'happy homemaker' I'd be starting my 1000 quarts of applesause this morning, but I don't see that happening any time soon. Not in this lifetime, anyway. The guys will be lucky to get a couple of apple pies and cakes out of this gal!! (I know, I know, what kind of attitude is that?) So maybe I'll make an apple crisp,too.
Aren't they pretty?
A great time was had by all!!!
Oooh, here's a pic that'll make your hair stand on end if you're one of those bee-phobic types! You'll have to indulge me though, cause I know there's a science lesson in here somewhere! Those garbage bees are all over (and SOOO annoying) this time of year, but my uncle and I, apparently dealing with some temporary insanity, decided to watch them as they "did their thing"! Well, they found the bits of leftover grilled chicken to be quite delightful, and would work and work until they could get their disgusting little hairy legs wrapped around them, and then they would take the chicken and buzz off. Not only are they annoying, but they're thieves as well!! After this had gone on for quite a while, I decided to get my camera out because I knew someone out there would just be dying to see a close-up pic of a bee!!!
BUZZZZZZ . . . . . . GOTCHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And what afternoon is complete withoug a rousing game of "pole"? According to my dogs, not a single one! Here they're having a blast playing with their daddy.
"What's taking so long, Dad?? Let's
keep that pole moving!!!"
In the knitting department, for some reason I was totally in a dishrag kind of mood. I put aside the sock I'd been toiling over and made dishrags. Guess I needed some instant gratification. I churned out several, and had great fun doing it! I'll get them blocked and take pics for later....
