A free apple giveaway netted me about 50 lbs. of apples. Of course, I could not pick up the bag once I filled them. A nice teen boy and girl helped me. The crockpot and dehydrator will be busy.
I watched people eat a circle around an apple and throw it on the ground. Why not eat the whole apple and throw the core in the trash. Apples rotting on asphalt are gross.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, I will put the three gallons of blueberries that are in the crockpot now into jars to join the jars of applesauce in the refrigerators.
Then, I have two hens to put into the crockpot and freeze for later.
Tuesday, I have to finish helping the Hispanic guys enter their computer resumes. ugh, still tired.
None of this is exciting. However, I am very proud of my apple score. I could have had three times as much apples if I could have bent over to get them.
Starting early Monday, we have had rain that is predicted to last through next Sunday. I hate that the little children with bikes from Santa will not be able to enjoy them.
A friend came today and moved things so I can use my space heater. Since it has been down to 28 F degrees, the heat is welcome. Now, the weather is great for December, 60s in the day and high 50s at night and up to high 70s next week and 80 on Sunday. It is 58 now at almost midnight. Don't envy us too much since with warm winter weather, we are always in danger of tornadoes. We know we will pay even as we go around in short sleeves, shorts and sandals.
How are your days going? How is the weather?
