Hi everyone! Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd. Actually it has been a beautiful week so far. Our nighttime temperatures have been in the mid 40’s and daytime highs are low 70’s. Perfect temps in my opinion.
Sunday we took the girls to Tweetsie Railroad for a day out. We had actually planned on going with Dave, Jess and kids but the kids had some type of virus going on. Daniel and Sam had it earlier in the week and we thought maybe Katie had escaped getting it. However, Saturday afternoon Katie came down with it so they did not get to go with us. Hubby actually decided to go with us at the last minute. He is not much for amusement parks but I think he didn’t want us going alone. We had a really fun day but kept missing Jess and crew. Sam so loves trains.
Today we are working with apples, SURPRISE! We also had 4 more l00 lb sacks of apples gave to us Friday evening. We will have plenty of apples this winter. I am juicing most of the ones gave to us Friday. We are making applesauce and applebutter too. Our steam juicer and our sauce maker sure do make this work go faster. I am very glad we have them.
Seems like we have been so busy here. I haven’t had time to make a post or read anyone else’s posts. I will try to catch up some today. Enjoy your day and God bless.
I hope that the virus passes quickly! It is so sad when the littles are feeling under the weather.
You’ll have to post a picture when you get all of your apples done. I am sure your pantry will be bulging! I am heading on a field trip to the apple orchard on Thursday. Nothing says fall to me like apples!
Enjoy your Tuesday!
Wow! What a bountiful blessing! Lots of warm apple pies in the winter, I am sure! I am a little envious! 😉 Have a bless day, dear one!
The weather has been great!
I hope Daniel, Sam, and Katie are all better.
All of your apples sound wonderful!
Wow~ what fun times! I know you’re busy with the apples and grapes but what a blessing. 😀 I really enjoyed that pictures of your old school. My old elementary school is tore down too. 😦
I hope that Jess’ little ones feel better soon. What wonderful things you can do with apples. I think those are my favorite fall time fruits. We love the apple cider that we make.
Have a wonderful day with your family.
We enjoy storing apples in our home too. All kinds of ways, sauce, pie filling, dried apples you know…the goods. smile Have a great time preserving your tasty blessings today. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!
What a blessing those apples will be this winter! I made an apple pie today with apples from our tree…I hope it’s good!
Oh my, Donna.. So many apples.. I don’t know what I would do with them all..
I love your juicer and such.. A great helper to have..
