apple time

The continually falling leaves are giving me sweeter mornings. Where I used to wake up to find the kitchen in complete darkness, I now have shadows and twinkling things. As days are shortening, this little house in the big woods is lightening up - how curious.

It is apple time. With 37lbs of them in my kitchen, I will be busy. Busy like the squirrels. Last night I got my first batch of applesauce in the freezer. It made four almost-full quart bags - four times this coming winter, we will eat cornbread and apple sauce and think of these beautiful magical days where the days are still long but the new shadows are short.


  1. delicious. It must smell like apple heaven.

  2. mmm, I love the smell of apples and I love to eat them too.
