It’s the biggest basket you can buy at the market. I’m holding off on apple picking until a little later in the season when some of my favs will be ripe. For now, I’m working my way through a big ol’ sack of jonathans from this week’s market. So far I’ve cranked out a giant vat of apple sauce for the freezer and an apple crisp. I have two crusts in the fridge ready for hand pies tomorrow. I think I’ll make another recipe for a 2 crust pie and use it to make two full sized crumb topped pies. The rest I think we’ll be able to manage just eating out of hand or maybe spread with a little peanut butter. My industriousness is in no small part due to this awesome peeler. It makes quick work of tons of apples AND is fun to use.
I finished the Boots mask prototype. It’s hideous. I have to scrap it. It bears no resemblance to Boots and I have no thoughts about how to improve it. The eyes need work but even if I improve them it won’t make the mask look anymore Boots like. She likes it though so I guess I can claim success as far as that goes at least. Lord knows she doesn’t hesitate to tell me when she doesn’t like something. At least I managed to cut the loose threads off. I don’t think it’s going to go much farther than that.
So I started to write this and it turns out I’m really tired and my back hurts. I’m trying to be brave here but I think I have a cold creeping in. Chase has a runny nose and a little bit of a cough. We went to Chipotle the other day and shared some juice. I think that was a mistake. Beyond wiping her nose and having her cough on me in general that is. I really don’t want to have a cold. I don’t have enough energy to go around as it is.
How was your weekend? Did you enjoy the beautiful weather? We did.
