When Life Gives You Lemons…. but How About Apples?

On Monday we had a big storm.  One of our apple trees, which had been infested by ants, blew over onto the garage.  It had already been a long day, with car trouble for A and unexpected meetings that kept me later at work,  but we both had work to do once we got home.  Thanks to Chris for helping cut the tree down!

The good news was, it had never been easier to pick apples.

Of course, I was up really late making applesauce. It was great, though, and then I used the leftovers to make apple crisp.  I used the leftover apple crisp to make oatmeal this morning!

    Wow it’s one thing to read your e-mail about this and another to see it!

  2. Must have been quite a storm. Was the garage damaged? I wonder if anything came down in our yard.

      The garage was mainly OK except for where it pressed on the gutters and a bit of the shingles. It almost took down the power line, though, so that was tricky.
