Wood Piles and Apple Pie


It’s been way to long since I have posted. Fall is on it’s way, view and it’s bittersweet seeing summer end. I have been way too lazy this summer, ailment and now it’s time to get ready to honker down and get things done around the house. I was hanging clothes on the line yesterday, when I heard a truck come up the driveway. It dumped a huge pile of fire wood. It’s need to be stacked. Yikes! Gotta put my work gloves on. Yesterday was my husband’s birthday.


I baked him an apple pie, his favorite. I had to break off a piece of the crust to see if it was flaky enough. I was disappointed though on how it turned out. I consider myself to be a good pie maker, especially apple pie. I used my convection oven this time. I don’t normally do that. The apples were too mushy. I wonder if it was because of the convection oven. All that work, but it’s the thought that counts, right? Off to the wood pile.
Happy day
