Saturday Saved, The Best For Last

DH had other plans today and he did not get ready to go somewhere until three in the afternoon. He got a meeting to go to and I am waiting in-patiently all day. Instead of getting mad at him that I always do because my plans will never get done if his never get started.

I cleaned my DD bedroom again, her bedroom never stay clutter free for even a day. She had helped with the mess, her little siblings that basically do everything she told them until they get bored and stop following what they are told. Then the fights starts from there. This time the two that are close in age help me, well more like "if you don't do this I will"...kind of thing. Each one of them picking different things and have their own bag/bucket/pail. I hide most of the toys, and they are only allowed to play with them if they ask me, well, less to clean.

And since DH did not go anywhere today, I drag him apple picking at the last minute. He can't say no because I will get mad/nag him for keeping me home all day.

Here are what we picked.

Our children enjoyed going to the Apple Orchard at Gulick's Orchard. We are supposed to take my SIL with us but since we left so late, I don't think she have enough time to get to our house before the Orchard close for the day. We are looking forward to buy more sugar sweet corn but I guess they are out of season because they don't have any today. Did you see the pull wagon we have? I got the kids pulling it...they look funny.

We picked 57lbs. of apples. Come over and I'll give you some. I may even give my neighbor some if my SIL does not take enough with her tomorrow. We picked "yellow delicious", "red delicious", and "empire apples" for apple pies. Anyone want some apples? Come and get them here. It turn out to be a good day for apple picking.

Exactly Now I need to start looking for recipes to turn my apples into.

WoW! that must be really something. The family out together and picking apples.

I am sure the kids really enjoyed it.

Nedekcir, how about making an Apple Pie and shipping it to me. hahaha.

Oooops! but then again, I can't as I have to watch my blood-sugar ever so diligently. :(

Have a great week ahead.

Ok, Mr. Windy coming your way. What kind of sugar do you use? I can add that instead of regular
